The Anti-Diva (New York Times Magazine)
Deep into the end of the article, the writer mentions that Nora Jones is the out-of-wedlock daughter of Indian sitar master Ravi Shankar. Who knew? Other fan websites actually say that Jones and Shankar have a good relationship, but they prefer to keep it private. I think that it is a good thing that she doesn’t make a big deal about that connection. I agree with her that it doesn’t matter about one’s family background or connections, but that one’s work has to stand on its own.
