Anoushka Shankar

India

As being the daughter of the renowed Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar and half sister of the talented Norah Jones, Anoushka Shankar is deeply attached to her roots. Initiated in traditional music and sitar by her illustrious father, she adds her own personality to his compositions, exploring an extremely fertile “crossover”, forging links with other musical styles. She has collaborated and shared the stage with artists as M.I.A, Sting, Lenny Kravitz and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Her new album “Land of Gold” was nominated for five Grammy-awards, in a reaction she expressed her concern about the tragic fate of refugees and victims of war. A message of hope, music that radiates powerful emotions, thus illuminative in our darkest hours. A perfect harmony that reflects the values of Esperanzah!
