Anoushka Shankar

October 11, 2023 @8:00pm

Arts & Entertainment

To read a list of Anoushka Shankar’s accomplishments is to read many life stories in one: masterful sitarist; film composer; impassioned activist; the youngest and first female recipient of a British House of Commons Shield; the first Indian musician to perform live or to serve as presenter at the Grammy Awards with nine nominations under her belt, and the first Indian woman to be nominated; one of the first five female composers to have been added onto the UK A-level music syllabus. In Fall 2023 Anoushka Shankar brings to North America a new quintet of musicians, with whom she has carved out a new, multifaceted and dynamic sound. The quintet, representing the very best of the thriving London music scene, comprises of clarinetist Arun Ghosh, drummer-composer Sarathy Korwar, Carnatic percussionist Pirashanna Thevarajah, and bassist Tom Farmer, each of whom are startlingly-talented solo artists in their own right.
