🇮🇳 🇬🇧 🇺🇸 This is the very moment when I should have embedded here the flag of the world. Our our today’s guest is the owner of all kinds of awards, titles and nominations, and definitely a “citizen of the world” in the fullest sense of the expression.
Anoushka Shankar is a worthy successor to the brilliant dynasty. Her father Ravi Shankar is worldwide famous not only for truly opening India’s music to the West, but for making the hearts all over the world fall in love with it.
Anoushka assembles a brilliant team of dedicated artists, inspires for discoveries and innovations. It happens that her live performances blur the borders between Hindustani music, other classical traditions of various regions, and modern music, more familiar to the audience.
For instance, the album that we are going to listen to today was released last year and collected the best compositions played with the Dutch Metropole Orkest conducted by Jules Buckley. You’ll hear Manu Delago playing his hang, that’s quite unusual for both classical Indian ensemble and symphonic one.
