Anoushka Shankar

Sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar is one of the leading figures in World Music today. She is deeply rooted in Indian classical music, having studied exclusively with her father, the legendary Ravi Shankar, from the age of 9. Thriving as a composer, she has been exploring fertile ground in the crossover between Indian music and a variety of genres including flamenco, electronica, jazz, and Western classical music. Twice-nominated for a Grammy Award, Shankar in 2006 was the first Indian musician to perform at the Grammy Awards when she was nominated for Rise. She was the youngest-ever nominee and the first woman nominated in the World Music category, for her album Live at Carnegie Hall in 2002. Born in London, and raised between there, New Delhi, and California, Shankar made her performance debut in 1995 at the age of 13. Two years later, she was accompanying her father at his concerts worldwide. At 16 she signed an exclusive recording contract with Angel/EMI and released three classical recordings between 1998-2001, all to great critical acclaim. After finishing her schooling, Shankar put all of her focus into following her musical pursuits and began touring in earnest, developing a solo career as a classical sitarist, while also continuing to accompany her father. In 2011 she signed with the prestigious classical music label Deutsche Grammophon Records and released Traveller, an exciting exploration of two musical traditions: Spanish flamenco and Indian classical music. Come and enjoy the hypnotic offerings of this talented and eclectic artist.
