As well as performing at hundreds of events, Ravi has also worked on many collaborations with a wide range of artists such as Joji Hattori, Paul Weller, Sir Paul McCartney, Kathryn Tickell, BBC Concert Orchestra, Kumar Bose, Noel Gallagher, Kavita Krishnamutri, Kuljit Bhamra, Erich Gruenburg, Rohan De Saram, Kenny Wheeler, The Orlando Consort, John Wilson, Bombay Dub Orchestra, Future Sounds of London & Sarah Brightman.
