Anoushka Shankar Pays Tribute to Her Father on “Home”

AnoushkaShankarHome

Anoushka Shankar has a history of stretching the boundaries of the sitar through collaborations with electronica producers, world music artists, and American pop and roots musicians, including a collaboration with her half-sister Norah Jones.

On her new album, Home, however, Anoushka Shanka pays tribute to her father, legendary Indian musician Ravi Shankar.

“He taught me right from the beginning,” she told NPR. “So, in a way, the album did sort of feel like a real focusing on him and a process of reconnecting with him through playing the music that I’ve learned from him.”
