Anoushka Shankar

Sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar is a singular figure in the Indian classical and progressive world music scenes. Her dynamic and spiritual musicality has gained her several prestigious accolades.

Alongside six Grammy nominations, she is the youngest – and first female – recipient of a British House of Commons Shield, has been credited as an 'Asian Hero' by Time magazine, and received an Eastern Eye Award for Music and a Songlines Best Artist Award. Most recently, she became one of the first five female composers to be added to the UK's A-level music syllabus.

Throughout 2020, a series of concerts and events take place to mark the centenary of the birth of her father, the seminal musician Ravi Shankar. As part of these centenary celebrations she joins family, friends and disciples to pay tribute to his musical genius in Ravi Shankar Centenary.
