Ask Ravi Shankar

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?
