Parents gave him the name of the famous master of sitar – Ravi Shankar. He studied saxophone at the California Institute of Arts. Significant impact on his style had Steve Coleman and created by him musical movement in Brooklyn M-Base.At that time he also performed alongside artists such as Herbie Hancock, Carlos Santana, Branford Marsalis or another musician associated with his father, pianist McCoy Tyner. In 2008, Ravi became part of The Blue Note 7, a septet formed that year in honor of the 70th anniversary of Blue Note Records – label which has released his last widely acclaimed album „Spirit Fiction.”
