In later years, the association of these great maestros led to the historic UN concert where Menuhin and Shankar played their famous duet. As the 1960s approached, however, there was a new fervour on the musical scene in both India and abroad. Delhi was fast becoming a cultural centre where Shankar took the lead in the creation of "Jhankar", which organised an annual festival of music to which the leading musicians of the country were invited.
