Southbank Centre’s Discover Music days aim to inspire and support children to pursue their own creative passions through interactive performances and workshops with some of our celebrated musical artists.
Called 'the godfather of world music' by George Harrison, the influential Indian musician Ravi Shankar was revered in his homeland and credited with bringing the sounds of the Indian raga to the West.
He collaborated with artists and composers including Philip Glass, Yehudi Menuhin and John Coltrane, and his own works married musical traditions of East and West.
