Anoushka Shankar

The daughter of sitar legend Ravi Shankar, Anoushka Shankar began studying under her father at age nine, making her performing debut four years later. Appearing alongside her father as he toured the world, she appeared at Carnegie Hall while still in her teens, and also performed at Peter Gabriel's WOMAD festival. She was the youngest and only female recipient of the House of Commons Shield awarded by British Parliament "in recognition of her artistry and musicianship -- as a preeminent musician of the Asian Arts." Shankar made her solo debut with 1998's Anoushka, released when she was still just 17 years old. Anourag followed two years later. The young prodigy added another triumph to her already impressive career in 2001 with her Live at Carnegie Hall album. The fusion- and worldbeat-inspired Rise arrived in 2005, followed by Karsh Kale: Breathing Under Water in 2007. Traveller, which explored the similarities and differences between classical Indian music and Spanish flamenco, appeared in 2011. Ravi Shankar: Symphony, the only symphony Ravi Shankar composed, was recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra directed by David Murphy and released in 2012, featuring Anoushka Shankar as the featured solo sitarist. In the fall of 2013, she released Traces of You, a collection of original material, on Deutsche Grammophon. It was preceded by the release of the title track as its first single, with vocals by half-sister Norah Jones. The set also includes appearances by Nitin Sawhney (who also produced the album), Ravichandra Kulur, Manu Delago, Pirashanna Thevarajah, Sanjeev Shankar, Kenji Ota, and Tanmoy Bose. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you have started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works Don't read this because it actually works.

Damn.!! Damn!! What a good feelin'.
Anoushka Shankar you are truly one rare jewel in the world. You are a true inspiration of beauty inside-out, dedication, determinatio n , and resiliency (and more) all wrapped into a warm soulful persona that Ravi Shankar and his holiness have created. Thanks for bringing me light out of darkness and joy out of sadness. I will never stop admiring your hard work.

I saw her and Ravi at the Gallo Center for the Arts in Modesto, CA in May of 2009. I was blown away. She was incredible. She outdid her father. (Granted, her father was 89 years old at the time and it's astounding that he can still play the way he does. But it was a feat nonetheless. ) The tabla player who accompanied them was also extraordinar y . I wish I could remember his name!
