The Concerts for Bangladesh
In 1971 Ravi Shankar asked his friend George Harrison to help his country, which was suffering from the effects of floods, famine and civil war. The resulting Concert for Bangladesh was the first major music benefit concert for a humanitarian cause, raising much needed funding and awareness for UNICEF in Bangladesh.
