A world music superstar, Sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar is a singular figure in the Indian classical and neotraditional genres. Her dynamic and spiritual musicality has garnered several prestigious accolades, including six Grammy 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. Deeply rooted in the Indian Classical music tradition, her performances demonstrate the versatility of the sitar across musical disciplines.
