The footage below shows Ravi Shankar teaching George Harrison how to play the sitar. George’s interest in the sitar is what brought Indian Classical Music into pop culture during the 1960s.

You can hear George Harrison playing sitar on certain Beatles tracks such as ‘Norwegian Wood’, ‘Love you to’, ‘Within You Without You’, and ‘The Inner Light’. George and Ravi became great friends, often touring together during the ’70s.
