Experience sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar, daughter of the legendary Ravi Shankar, performing live her spellbinding and magnetic album Land of Gold.

A singular figure in the Indian classical and progressive world-music scenes, Anoushka Shankar brings a deep relationship with tradition through her father and guru, the late great Ravi Shankar. Her adventurous approach as a composer spans electronica, classical music and flamenco and she has collaborated with the world’s great orchestras and artists as diverse as Sting, M.I.A and Herbie Hancock.

These exchanges between Indian and Western music find even greater power in Shankar’s advocacy for women’s rights and social justice, with her latest album, Land of Gold, responding to the humanitarian trauma of displaced people fleeing conflict and poverty.

Be astounded by the Queen of the sitar, accompanied and by the extraordinary percussionist and hang player Manu Delago, for an evening of deeply expressive music, which draws upon India’s ancient culture, while creating a dynamically intoxicating sense of the contemporary.
