The Anoushka Shankar Project featuring Anoushka Shankar will perform at Kirkland Performance Center, April 2 and 3 at 7:30 p.m.

The Anoushka Shankar Project will feature selections from their album Rise. Though Anoushka Shankar is known for her work with the classical Indian sitar, this show incorporates various styles of music including jazz, pop, and pan-ethnic world-music.

Anoushka Shankar learned to play the sitar through the teachings of one of the leading sitar players of the modern era, her father, Ravi Shankar.

Anoushka has been nominated twice for a Grammy, and in 2006 she became the first Indian woman to perform during the Grammy Awards.

Anoushka, playing sitar, will be joined on stage with four other artists: Tanmoy Bose – tabla, Ravichandra Kulur – flute, Leo Dombecki – piano, and Jesse Charnow – drum kit.

The Anoushka Shankar Project is the first performance in a series of three separate events showcasing Indian music and dance. The series, Namaste Kirkland, features: The Anoushka Shankar Project, Debashish Bhattacharya (April 18,) and Bala Music and Dance featuring Aniruddha Knight (April 25.) A fifteen percent discount is available for individuals purchasing tickets to all three shows.
