Anoushka Shankar Live: Durham, NC (March 21, 2019)
Sitar virtuoso in concert.
Sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar will perform live on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 8 pm, Carolina Theatre of Durham. 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. Though Shankar has continuously thought outside of convention and beyond her pedigree, her mastery of the music tradition and its intricacies is absolute, giving her the tools and flexibility to move within and beyond heritage.
