Anoushka Shankar to perform at ASC

asc anoushka shankar sSitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7 at UAB’s Alys Stephens Center. Shankar is deeply rooted in Indian classical music, having studied exclusively with her legendary father Ravi Shankar since age 9. Thriving as a composer, she has been exploring fertile ground in the crossover between Indian music and other genres.

A two-time nominee, Shankar became the first Indian musician to perform at the Grammy Awards when she was nominated for “Rise” in 2006, and she was the youngest person and first woman nominated in the World Music category for her album “Live at Carnegie Hall” in 2002. Her 2011 CD “Traveller” is an exploration of two musical traditions — Spanish flamenco and Indian classical music.

Tickets are $55.50, $44.50 and $31.50. For tickets, visit the ASC online at or call 205-975-2787. ArtPlay, the ASC’s home for education and outreach, will present a clinic earlier at 1 p.m. featuring demonstrations of Indian instruments, scales and rhythms by members of Shankar’s band. For more information on the clinic, call 205-975-4769.
