ENCINITAS, Calif. (AP) - World-famous musician Ravi Shankar will be remembered Thursday at a public memorial service in San Diego County.
City News Service reports the service will begin at 10 a.m. at the Self-Realization Fellowship in Encinitas and will include tributes and prayers.
Shankar was a master of the Indian sitar who collaborated with and influenced George Harrison, John Coltrane and other Western music icons. He lived in Encinitas for two decades and died last week in San Diego at the age of 92.
Shankar was the father of singer Norah Jones and Grammy-nominated sitarist Anoushka Shankar.
