The Royal Conservatory of Music | Anoushka Shankar
October 14 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$60
Anoushka Shankar is a singular, genre-defying artist with a list of extraordinary accomplishments – masterful sitarist, film composer, impassioned activist, the youngest and first female recipient of a British House of Commons Shield, and the first Indian woman to be nominated for the Grammy Awards.
In the fall of 2023, she brings a new quintet of musicians to North America, with whom she will perform music from her 2022 release, Between Us..., alongside thoroughly shaken-up, reinterpreted gems from her previous releases.
The quintet comprises clarinetist Arun Ghosh, drummer-composer Sarathy Korwar, Carnatic percussionist Pirashanna Thevarajah, and bassist Tom Farmer, each of whom are startlingly talented solo artists in their own right. Premiered for the first time in India in December 2022, this quintet has been hailed as one of the best ensembles to have toured with Anoushka across her 28-year global performing career. The energy and camaraderie on stage is unmatched as Shankar leads the way in pioneering a new sound through inventive arrangements, sensitive virtuosity, and a neoclassical approach to the music tradition to which she belongs.
