Anoushka Shankar to perform in India

MUMBAI: World Music Award winner and two-time Grammy nominee Anoushka Shankar will be performing in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Bangalore.

The Anoushka Shankar Project was created in 2006 in response to the need for Shankar to present and perform her experimental creations. She wanted to maintain a clear distinction between her experimental work and her classical Indian concerts and therefore formed The Anoushka Shankar Project. Since then ASP has toured Europe and America, from festivals to classical concert halls.

2008’s debut tour of The Anoushka Shankar Project in Australia and New Zealand was sold out and they even added extra rows of seats at the prestigious Sydney Opera House.

The Anoushka Shankar Project is a band that brings together the genius of various stalwart musicians to create music. Tanmoy Bose on the tabla and Ravichandra Kulur with the Flute, Leo Dombecki, a multi-instrumentalist from Michigan, and Californian Barry Philips, a unique cellist are some of the members of the band. Sanjiv Shankar, a disciple of Pandit Ravi Shankar, is on the shehnai, and Jesse Charnow is the drummer and percussionist.
