Indian sitar maestro Ravi Shankar has died in a hospital in the US, aged 92.

Shankar gained widespread international recognition through his association with The Beatles.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh described him as a "national treasure and global ambassador of India's cultural heritage".

Sad news. A humble person, but he influenced many Western musicians with this exotic and ancient instrument.

R.I.P Ravi.
