Anoushka Shankar

Anoushka Shankar is a unique artist with tremendous talent and understanding of the great musical tradition of India.

The only artist in the world to be trained completely by her father and legendary sitar virtuoso and composer, Ravi Shankar, she has been playing and studying the sitar with him since she was nine.

Her latest album Rise has seen her journey beyond the musical traditions of India to create her own sound. Rise is not only a testament to her skill at the sitar, but to her mastery of composition. For this her Irish debut, Anoushka will be joined on stage by nine musicians in the ambient setting of St.Nicholas' collegiate Church.
