AN EVENING OF MUSIC AND STORIES WITH THE SITAR VIRTUOSO

“…her exquisite sitar playing lives up to the virtuosity that made her the youngest woman ever nominated for a World Music Grammy.”

—Harper’s Bazaar

 

Genre-defying musician and seven-time Grammy Award nominee Anoushka Shankar unveils a special project for Indian Summer Festival. Anoushka is a singular artist, steeped in musical inheritance, yet always defying expectations. Join Anoushka as she leads us through the inspirations – personal and political – that inform her art, and introduces us to musical landmarks in her career. 

She invites us into her world, starting with her tutelage with her legendary father and guru Pandit Ravishankar, her collaborations over the years with a range of outstanding artists from around the world, her music in response to humanitarian and social justice movements, and finally a glimpse into her reflections during the pandemic, ending with an acoustic performance from home, especially for ISF. 

This is a rare chance to experience both the inner workings and the music of one of the most vital artists of our times.

 

*N.B. Video on Demand/Replay: We encourage you to join us for the Event Premiere for interactive live elements like chat. If you miss the Event Premiere, the replay will be available from 12pm noon Sunday, June 20th, 2021 for a one time watch per pass/ticket until midnight on July 17th, 2021
