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 nine. Thriving as a composer, she has been exploring the fertile ground in the crossover between Indian music & a variety of genres, including flamenco, electronica, jazz & Western classical music. In this performance, Anoushka explores this fascinating world by fusing electronica mixed with traditional acoustic performance, supported by an ensemble of Western and Eastern musicians.
