anoushka-shankarInternationally acclaimed sitarist Anoushka Shankar will be returning to India this winter for a four-city tour in support of her new album “Home”.

Anoushka, daughter of late Sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar, will start her tour from Mumbai on December 12. Then she will head to Delhi on December 13 and Jaipur on December 15, ending her tour in Bengaluru on December 18.

“I am very excited to be back in India after two years. ‘Home’ is a special album to me for many reasons. It is an album about going back to my roots, and was recorded as an homage to my father and guru Pandit Ravi Shankar,” Anoushka said in a statement.

“It was also special because it was recorded while I was expecting my younger son Mohan. This December tour will be Mohan’s first trip to India,” she added.

The tour is being curated by Alchemist Marketing Solutions. Anoushka will be joined by her husband and film director Joe Wright, and her two sons, Zubin and Mohan.

Asked about her album “Home”, she said: “Indian classical music is traditionally passed down from guru to disciple over decades of tutelage that encompasses mind, body and soul, a spiritual relationship unlike any other.”

“This is the first time I’m playing classical ragas on an album since he passed away. I felt deeply connected to him during the entire process. It does feel like an offering. It felt like I was reconnecting with him through playing the music that I’ve learned from him.”
