HILLSIDE — Gene & Shelley Enlow Recital Hall at Kean University will host a one-night-only concert by Anoushka Shankar on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 3 p.m.
Three-time Grammy® nominated sitar player-composer Anoushka Shankar is one of the leading figures in World Music today. Shankar was the first Indian musician to perform at the Grammys® in 2006, soon after becoming the youngest-ever and the first woman nominated in the World Music category, for her album “Live at Carnegie Hall” in 2002.
Shankar studied exclusively with her father, the legendary Ravi Shankar since the age of 9 and has made guest appearances on recordings by diverse artists, among them Herbie Hancock, Joshua Bell and Lenny Kravitz.
Now, in 2013, Shankar releases “Traces of You”, having enlisted the help of multi-award-winning musician Nitin Sawhney to produce her music. The music exists in an undefinable space between genres, always with the Indian music Shankar loves so dearly at its roots. “Traces of You” features Shankar half-sister Norah Jones as the sole vocalist on several songs and showcases Shankar’s ever increasing versatility and lyricism on the sitar.
Tickets to Anoushka Shankar in Enlow Hall are $35 – $45 and can be purchased by calling Kean Stage Box Office at 908.737.SHOW (7469), online at http://EnlowHall.kean.edu or in person at Kean University’s Wilkins Theater Box Office, 1000 Morris Avenue in Union.
