About 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.

Deeply rooted in the Indian Classical music tradition, Anoushka studied exclusively from the age of nine

Under her father and guru, the late Ravi Shankar, and made her professional debut as a classical sitarist at the age of thirteen. By the age of 20, she had made three classical recordings for EMI/Angel and received her first Grammy® nomination, thereby becoming the first Indian female and youngest-ever nominee in the World Music category.

In 2005, Anoushka released her self- produced breakthrough album Rise, which earned her a second Grammy® nomination. Following this nomination Anoushka became the first Indian artist to perform at the Grammy® Awards.  Her latest album on Deutsch Grammophon, Land of Gold, is her personal response to the humanitarian trauma of displaced people fleeing conflict and poverty.

The release in spring 2016 was followed by tours of North America, India and Europe including performances at wide-ranging venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Vienna Konzerthaus, Dubai Opera House and at live music festivals including Glastonbury (West Holts), WOMAD and Rudolstadt.

Highlights of the current season include performances of Concerto No 2 with the Berlin Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic and the New York Philharmonic Orchestras.

Today, from her home in London where she lives with her husband and two sons, Anoushka’s career reflects her aim to constantly learn and grow as an artist. Across continents and demographics, people respond to what she calls the “honesty” in her music, which is integral to her work both in the classical and modern musical spheres. As Nitin Sawhney wrote, “no one embodies the spirit of innovation and experimentation more evidently than Anoushka Shankar.” Activism

 Anoushka Shankar is a supporter of animal rights. She and her father appeared in a thirty-second public- Service announcement against animal suffering for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

 Anoushka is also the spokesperson for the United Nations World Food Programme in India. In 2013, responding to the horrific gang-rape of a young girl ( declaring the name of a rape victim is against the Indian law ) in Delhi, whom the Indian media referred to as Nirbhaya, Anoushka Shankar threw her weight behind an online campaign One Billion Rising on Change.org, demanding an end to crime against women. As part of the campaign, she released a video in which she revealed she had been sexually abused for many years as a child.

Born in a family of musicians of Banaras gharana in which Shehnai, a reed instrument from India & flute are played for the last 450 years and over, Sanjeev manifested his strong affinity towards music at the age of seven. His father Pt. Daya Shankar, himself an internationally acclaimed Shehnai player boosted his sons’ blooming talent to flourish with his personal inspiration and guidance.

Sanjeev also had the privilege to learn Shehnai from their grandfather, the legendary Shehnai player Pt. Anant Lal. After formal training in pursuit of proficiency of the highest order in Raga, Taal and Laya,

Sanjeev was awarded - together with his brother Ashwani - scholarship by the Govt. of India, Department of Culture, for their outstanding talent in the field of music.

Sanjeev have been consolidating his knowledge under the able guidance of the legendary sitar maestro Pt. Ravi Shankar and now plays frequently with Anoushka. “Sanjeev Shankar, a student of my father, plays a searingly emotional instrument called the shehnai, a reed instrument from India” says Anoushka.
