The Sitar master, and friend of The Beatles, is to answer your questions...

We’re honoured that the venerable sitar hero, Ravi Shankar, will soon be answering your questions in our regular An Audience With… feature.

He has lived an extraordinary life so far. He performed at Woodstock, hung out at the Oval Office with George Harrison and then-US President Gerard Ford, and served as a member of the upper house in the Parliament of India.

So, what would you like to ask Ravi?

What are his memories of the Concert For Bangladesh?

What was it like visiting Paris in the 1930s?

What has he learned from a life devoted to music?

Send your questions to by Tuesday, August 30. We’ll put the best ones to Ravi, and they’ll appear in a forthcoming edition of Uncut.
