Ravi’s worldwide visibility skyrocketed as the guitarist for Hanson—the top-selling band in the world around the turn of the millennium. He has performed on the stages of the Tonight Show, Today Show, Good Morning America, Saturday Night Live, Madison Square Garden, Superdome, and the White House; penned over a hundred articles for major magazines; authored Dancin’ with Hanson published by Simon & Schuster, and written four music instructional DVDs on TrueFire. He also released two CDs independently and multiple singles on iTunes.
While learning to fly, The Raviator discovered that pilots have a strong interest in music—49.7% play an instrument—and started promoting his musicianship within aviation. He performs concerts at air shows, endorses both music and aviation companies interested in attracting pilots, developed a signature model folding guitar for aviators with small airplanes, and in addition to helping the industry recruit millennial talent, speaks on pilot hearing loss prevention since he meets more hearing impaired pilots than musicians.
Born into the “Wall Street” branch of a political family, Ravi is the first American born member of the Nehru-Gandhi family—India’s political dynasty who created and governed the world’s largest democracy for over 40 years. Despite the obvious career opportunities, he chose to pursue his own ambitions while embracing the legacy of his heritage.
