Anoushka Shankar


One of the brightest and youngest stars of the sitar, Anoushka Shankar pays tribute to her late father the legendary Pandit Ravi Shankar in a benefit concert for the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan centre, London.

The Bagri Foundation is thrilled to support the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in this initiative and  proud to present a unique performance uniting Anouhska Shankar, Tanmoy Bose on tabla and Pirashanna Thevarajah on mridangam.


Anoushka Shankar

Sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar is a singular figure in the Indian classical and progressive world music scenes. Her dynamic and spiritual musicality has garnered several prestigious accolades, including six Grammy Award nominations, recognition as the youngest – and first female – recipient of a British House of Commons Shield, credit as an Asian Hero by TIME Magazine, and a Songlines Best Artist Award. Most recently, she became one of the first five female composers to have been added to the UK A-level music syllabus.
