The brilliant mind behind Grammy-nominated albums Traces of You and Rise, Anoushka Shankar is coming to Campbell Hall at University of California Santa Barbara this April. The daughter of legendary sitarist and Beatles influencer Ravi Shankar, Shankar carries her father’s traditional sounds while adding influences from other musical traditions around the world. She will embark on this performance with the help of Manu Delago, an Australian percussionist known for his work with Bjork, and a guest DJ who’s yet to be named. Shankar herself will play the shehnai and tanpura.
