 Abstract (Document Summary)

A member of one of India's most prominent musical families, Shankar studied the sitar as a youth with both his father and his mother, Annapurna Devi, a master surbahar (bass sitar) player and daughter of the legendary Indian musician Ustad Allaudin Khan.

According to Hindu tradition, Shankar's remains were cremated Thursday and dispersed in the ocean Saturday off Marina del Rey, said Harihar Rao, a longtime family friend. Rao and the late Shankar both founded a Southern California-based society for Indian music known as the Music Circle.
