Ravi Shankar

Amidst the unprecedented realities that we are all actively addressing during the COVID-19 global pandemic, we want to convey our heartfelt concern for everyone in our community across the world. Our first priority is the health, safety, and well-being of the artists, staff, production team, and our beloved audiences who generously support our efforts in the performance of live concerts. It is with great regret we announce the postponement of the Ravi Shankar Centennial Concerts because of visa issues related to COVID-19.

Dark Horse Records and BMG are celebrating this year's milestone Ravi Shankar centennial with the first ever vinyl release of his renowned 1997 album, CHANTS OF INDIA. Produced by Shankar's longtime friend and collaborator, Dark Horse founder George Harrison, the acclaimed collection will be available on 2x12" LP 180-gram red vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve with an exclusive 12"x12" photo print.

A legend of 20th century music and an international icon of India, sitar virtuoso and singular composer Ravi Shankar (1920 - 2012) will be commemorated with a series of Ravi Shankar Centennial Concerts in May 2020 to celebrate 100 years since his birth on April 7, 1920.
