For close to a 100 years Sharma's family has created musical instruments for legendary Indian musicians. But none more famous than sitar virtuoso Ravi Shankar who died Tuesday at age 92. Described as "the godfather of world music" by Beatle George Harrison, Shankar introduced millions of Westerners to the sitar and the centuries-old traditions of Indian classical music.
