Anoushka Shankar Music lovers in Delhi were left spellbound by the concluding concert of sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar and an ensemble of Indian and western musicians.

East met West as Anoushka and her troupe of musicians performed enlivening and experimental compositions at the concert in New Delhi.

Watched by her legendary father Pandit Ravi Shankar , who was in the audience, Anoushka, clad in a black sleeveless kurti, explored the common links of Indian musical traditions and Western elements such as flamenco and jazz at the fifth and final concert of the 'Anoushka Shankar Project India 2009'.




Whether it was "Charu Keshi Rain," which Anoushka co-wrote with London-based Nitin Sawhney or the Flamenco Suraya piece, the audiences were left spellbound. She also played ragas and compositions created by her father.

She concluded her concert with the trademark piece based on Jog raga. "Though we have been playing this piece for over three years, I am yet to name it," she said of the piece.

The earlier concerts were held at Kolkata, Mumbai (twice) and Bangalore.

The Project began in 2006 in response to the need for Anoushka to present and perform her experimental creations.
