She's the daughter of Ravi Shankar, the sister of Norah Jones and the leading sitarist in the world. Anoushka Shankar comes in with her ensemble of percussion, shenai and bass to perform music from her album of hybrid Indian sounds, Land of Gold. The album is based around Anoushka's reaction to the refugee crisis in the Middle East and serves as a tone poem for yearning, suffering, hope, escape and refuge. Hear a master of her instrument in an evocative setting live on Echoes.
