Anoushka Shankar

Performance Information

A superstar of the sitar in an intimate, all-classical setting

In a reprise of her packed-house performances in spring 2017, sitar virtuoso and cross-genre adventurer Anoushka Shankar returns to her roots in North Indian classical music in back-to-back concerts at Sixth & I. Reviewing Shankar’s 2015 all-classical disc, Home, London’s Songlines magazine praised “Shankar’s sublime playing,” adding, “There’s a tangible feeling of the warm evening air, scents and heightened emotions. It’s something to bask and revel in.”

This performance is made possible in part through the generous support of Encompass Supply. Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible through the generous support of the Galena-Yorktown Foundation.
