Geeta Sarabhai

She was a singer of Indian classical music and a player of the pakhavaj. In fact she may well have been the first woman to play that famously difficult-to-play percussion instrument. She was a member of the prestigious Sarabhai family and an energetic patron of music in her home city of Ahmedabad where she founded the Sangeet Kendra. She passed away in March 2011.
