Two months after his death, Indian sitar legend Ravi Shankar has won the best world music album Grammy for "The Living Room Sessions Part 1" spanning a wide range of Indian classical styles.
The maestro's daughter Anoushka, who too was nominated in the same category for her album "Traveller" accepted the Grammy on behalf of her late father at the Grammy awards show on Sunday.
"It's OK to lose to your father," said the 31-year-old, who is also a sitar player and composer, as she received the award for her father.
Ravi Shankar, who died in December at the age of 92, after heart surgery at a hospital in La Jolla, California, near San Diego, was also awarded a posthumous lifetime achievement Grammy.
Earlier Saturday, Anoushka Shankar and the musician's other daughter singer Norah Jones accepted the posthumous Grammy Award at a special ceremony in Los Angeles ahead of Sunday's Grammys show.
The Indian icon was among seven artists, including Carole King and the Temptations, named as Lifetime Achievement Award honourees.
Jones, who has won nine Grammys of her own, said of her father, "We know he was very excited to be receiving this award. We really miss him. He lived and breathed music."
"I remember him drumming on the breakfast table, trying to get me to learn to play seven (beats) over five. I'm still trying to learn that. We are very happy to accept the award for him."
Her half sister added, "It was 60 days ago today that he passed away. It's kind of difficult to be standing up here, like Norah said, I am thrilled that he knew about this award before he passed away at least. But I wish we weren't standing up here for him."
Although her mother, Sukanya, was in attendance at Saturday's event, she did not take the stage.
"She's the reason he was able to be alive as long as he was, so I'm eternally grateful to her," Anoushka said of her mother.
