Introduction

Shankar’s Eclectic Vibes

Global sitar sensation, Anoushka Shankar, will delight us with an evening of breathtaking performance and skill, in a concert promising to stun each and every music lover in town.

Daughter of the legendary Ravi Shankar, the exotic, beautiful virtuosa takes over where her father left, allowing world listeners to peek into India’s musical traditions. Having made her debut aged 13 in New Delhi, alongside her father, Anoushka Shankar soon garnered attention from international critics for her distinct and experimental approach, an instinct developed as she toured the world’s greatest stages. Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long before she was catapulted to the forefront of world music, having collaborated with renowned artists of various genres, from the likes of Herbie Hancock and Zubin Mehta to Joshua Bell, Sting and her own half-sister, jazz-pop singer Norah Jones.

Among us to present Land of Gold, her latest work, Shankar will be accompanied by a very contemporary group of musicians including percussionist and co-composer Manu Delago, double bassist and keyboardist Tom Farmer, and master of the Indian shehnai Sanjeev Shankar. Contrasting the often meditative flow of traditional ragas with a dense use of electronics and amplified beats, this album is Shankar’s response to the international refugee crisis and a cry against injustice.

Classically trained in two very different traditions, Shankar transports her audiences into the depths of Indian heritage, beautifully merging it with various other sonic influences to come up with her own inventive, refreshingly anew compositions. It will be a privilege seeing and listening to one of the world’s most exciting musicians.
