Ravi Shankar, sitar
Anoushka Shankar, sitar
A living legend, Ravi Shankar is known as “the godfather of world music.” Credited with introducing Western audiences to India’s intricate classical music, Shankar shares the stage with his daughter Anoushka, who is “the purest of her father’s disciples, musically formed entirely in his image” (The New York Times). The father-daughter duo has “a bond that comes up only onstage,” Ms. Shankar has said. “It’s spiritual…and it’s the beautiful music and the excitement.”
