A December date with Anoushka Shankar
The arrival of Anoushka Shankar on Indian shores is always a matter of interest to us. Pandit Ravi Shankar’s beautiful daughter receives a warm welcome from her fans and from those who remain loyal to her maestro mentor and father. This trip, scheduled for the second week of December 2013, is to perform at a two-city concert — with her forthcoming album (titled ‘Traces Of You’) being the focus. From what we hear, the album is a confluence of Indian and Western instrumental with some vocals, and is a tribute to her inimitable father. Mumbai and New Delhi, book your tickets. And look out for Anoushka’s son Zubin, who is likely to travel to India for the first time since his birth!
