Hailed by the Japan Times as "a new breed of super-musician, classically trained in two traditions," renowned sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar fuses Indian music with a variety of genres, including electronic, jazz, flamenco and Western classical music. The daughter of legendary Ravi Shankar, Anoushka made her performance debut at age 13 in New Delhi. Since the release of her first album, she has been nominated for two Grammy Awards and was featured as one of 20 Asian heroes by the Asia edition of Time Magazine. Anoushka has collaborated with superstar artists, including Lenny Kravitz, Peter Gabriel, Herbie Hancock, Elton John, Madonna, Nina Simone, Sting, James Taylor and Norah Jones. In the intimate Wyly Theatre, Anoushka will showcase music from her latest album, Traveller—a stunning fusion of flamenco and Indian musical styles.
