Under the tutelage of her father, the sitar paragon Ravi Shankar, Anoushka Shankar established herself as one of the world’s best classical sitarists when she was barely a teenager. At twenty, she became the first Indian woman and the youngest person ever to be nominated for a World Music GRAMMY. On a series of exceptional albums and tours, Shankar’s dynamic and visionary music has made it clear she lives under the shadow of no name, mentor, genre, or strict tradition. “Shankar is a good deal more than just a great man’s daughter,” affirms The Guardian. “She is one of the best sitar players in the world, if not, now that her father has passed away, the best.”
