Events: Anoushka Shankar’s “Traveller” Returns To London

Following her 2011 sold out concert, Anoushka Shankar returns to Queen Elizabeth Hall.

The only artist in the world to be trained completely by her father, Ravi Shankar, Anoushka Shankar is carrying forward his legacy while carving out for herself a much-acclaimed solo career.

Having accompanied Ravi Shankar at many concerts from the age of just 13, she has also shared the stage with many of the world’s top artists, including Sting, Madonna, Nina Simone, Herbie Hancock, Elton John, Peter Gabriel and James Taylor.

Her latest album ‘Traveller’ traces the roots of Flamenco music back to Rajasthani gypsies, earning her Songlines Magazine’s Best Artist Award (2012) and a nomination for a Grammy Award in the Best World Music Album category.

This performance of ‘Traveller’ features a special group of Rajasthani dancers accompanying the music.
