The Harris Center proudly presents a singular figure who is renowned in both classical Indian and world music. Sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar has garnered five Grammy Award-nominations and the title "Asian Hero" by Time magazine.
She studied sitar under her father and guru, the late Ravi Shankar, making her professional classical debut at the age of 13. With 11 recordings to her credit (including Traces of You, which features Anoushka's half-sister Norah Jones, and Home, from which her Folsom program will be culled), "her exquisite sitar playing...lives up to the virtuosity that made her the youngest woman ever nominated for a World Music Grammy" (Harper's Bazaar).
