Additional Information

Sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar is a singular figure in the Indian classical and progressive world music scenes. Deeply rooted in the Indian classical music tradition, she studied exclusively from the age of 9 under her father and guru, the late Ravi Shankar, and made her professional debut as a classical sitarist at the age of 13. As an international solo artist, she has performed in a range of distinguished venues around the world including Carnegie Hall, Barbican Centre, Sydney Opera House, Vienna Konzerthaus, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and Palais des Beaux-Arts.

Through her bold and collaborative approach as a composer, Anoushka has encouraged cross-cultural dialogue while demonstrating the versatility of the sitar across musical genres. As a result, she has created a vital body of work with a prominent and diverse roster of artists including Sting, M.I.A., Herbie Hancock, Pepe Habichuela, and her half-sister Norah Jones.
