Anoushka Shankar On Sunday night, the mood was somber before the beginning of the Jethru Tull and Anoushka Shankar ’s joint concert in New Delhi.

While the concert in Mumbai (scheduled on Nov 29) was canceled due to the terrorist attack and the three-day siege, the Delhi concert (as part of their five city tour) went as planned. But the show was dedicated to the victims of the terror attacks.

Ian Anderson, the vocalist, flautist and the frontman of Jethro Tull, urged the crowd to observe a minute’s silence to remember the innocents who lost their lives in Mumbai.




Hamsadhwani stadium in Pragati Maidan was packed with fans of Tull and Shankar. Keeping with the mood, the concert began with a sad solo recital on the Sitar by Anoushka Shankar.

After Anoushka’s solo performance, the British band took the stage and rocked the fans by belting out some of their all time hits including ‘Thick As a Brick’, ‘Aqualung’, ‘Living in the past’, ‘My Sunday Feeling’, a Rashaan Roland Kirk's jazz improvisation, ‘Serenade to a Cuckoo’ and ‘Heavy Horses’ from the 1970s.

This was followed by the band’s jam session with Anoushka that included ‘Tea with Anoushka’, a song especially composed for the concert by Anderson.

Anderson also said that though the Mumbai concert was canceled, the band and Anoushka “are planning to go back to Mumbai later this week for a benefit concert to help the victims."

That’s the spirit.
