About Anoushka Shankar
Virtuosic and emotional, classical and contemporary, Anoushka Shankar’s masterful sitar playing creates a world where ragas, bright analog soundscapes, and contemplative electronics beautifully coexist. As a child, Anoushka studied the sitar with her father, Pandit Ravi Shankar, one of the world’s best known North Indian classical musicians. Eventually, she would merge the meditative, introspective qualities of Indian classical music with a teenage love for electronic music and the Goan psychedelic trance scene, creating a sound “one foot in the past and one in the present.” Anoushka’s diverse collaborations include Herbie Hancock, Patti Smith, Joshua Bell, Gold Panda, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Jules Buckley and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In 2020, she was announced as the inaugural President of the F-List: a UK database created to help bridge the gender-gap in music, and as an Ambassador for The Walk, an international artistic project supporting refugees.
