Anoushka Shankar

India / UK

The foremost proponent of the sitar, Anoushka is a player for all seasons. Not only is she magisterial when reciting works from the Indian classical tradition, but she’s also a far-reaching modernist with a wide and varied collection of collaborators. Sting, Herbie Hancock, Nitin Sawhney and her half-sister Norah Jones are just a handful.
