In June of 1966, George Harrison met maestro Ravi Shankar in Bath, England. Harrison asked Ravi to teach him how to play the sitar, a task Ravi agreed to only after considerable hesitation.
Their collaboration resulted in an explosion in the popularity of classical Indian music and culture all around the world.
