    The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia presents the singular sitar stylings of Anoushka Shankar on April 27, 2019, at 8pm in the Chan Shun Concert Hall. Pre-show Talk with Nina Buddhdev : Nina Buddhdev, heritage arts advocate, consultant and artists mentor, explores Anoushka Shankar’s rooted musical devotion, her compelling personal journey, and the emotionality mirrored in the newly released and carefully curated album, Reflections. Nina shares some of her own precious memories of working with Anoushka’s father, Shri Pt. Ravi Shankar and the legendary masters of Indian classical music who all impacted her deep association with heritage arts. ANOUSHKA SHANKAR: Divine sitar player, acclaimed composer, and one of contemporary India’s cultural gems, Anoushka Shankar is a star of the international stage. A devotee of the Indian classical music tradition, she studied under her guru and father, the late Ravi Shankar, but has long since emerged as a powerhouse in her own right. By turns spirited and meditative, this program draws on classical ragas as well as more contemporary cross-cultural pieces that showcase the versatility of the sitar. Shankar will be joined onstage by the exceptionally gifted instrumentalists Ojas Adhiya (tabla), Pirashanna Thevarajah (mridangam), Ravichandra Kulur (flute), Danny Keane (cello and piano), Kenji Ota (tanpura), and Sharanjeet Singh Mand (tanpura). A prolific recording artist known for her dynamic musicality, Shankar has eight studio albums to her credit and has triumphed at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Vienna Konzerthaus, and Théâtre des Champs-Elysées. Past musical collaborators include the London Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic, Sting, M.I.A., and her half-sister Norah Jones. In tandem with her musical career, Shankar is also an avid supporter of women’s rights and an advocate for social justice.
