Time Out says

A musician who introduced traditional Indian styles of music and instruments to Western audiences, Ravi Shankar earned the title of "the Godfather of world music" from George Harrison of the Beatles. This exhibition at the South Asia Institute examines his career and the impact he had on popular culture, assembling more than 100 items, including rare concert posters, photographs, videos, record covers and personal ephemera. Guests can explore the collection, listen to the sitarist's music and gain a deeper appretiation for Shankar's creative output as well as his influence on the likes of Phillip Glass and John Coltrane.

The South Asia Institute will offer free admission to the exhibition every Friday.
