ANOUSHKA SHANKAR: LOVE LETTERS
Use it to
The sitarist returns for a live-streamed performance from our Royal Festival Hall with Love Letters, a collection of songs about love, heartbreak and healing.
It’s a return for Love Letters, too, as the EP was first performed in the Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall in 2019.
Anoushka Shankar is a singular figure within the classical and contemporary, acoustic and electronic music scenes.
She brings tempests of sounds that present ancient instruments in a modern light, not as exotic set pieces, but as living, breathing and wildly expressive gifts.
Her dynamic and spiritual musicality has gained her multiple accolades, including seven Grammy Award nominations.
Shankar became a Southbank Centre Associate Artist in 2019, and she performs here in a series of concerts to mark the centenary of the birth of her father, the seminal musician Ravi Shankar.
'Her ability to skew traditional mesmeric melodies into something that transcends genres whilst telling honest stories makes Love Letters a career high.' Clash Magazine
