Reflektor Anoushka Shankar

It certainly wasn't and isn't always easy having the country's most famous musician as a father. But Anoushka Shankar, the daughter of legendary sitar virtuoso, composer, teacher and cultural ambassador Ravi Shankar, carries on her father's legacy in her own remarkable way. At the »Reflektor«, Anoushka Shankar chooses the programme in the Elbphilharmonie over the space of four days. Among the guests are artists from very different genres who have accompanied her for many years, with programmes ranging from a British-Indian silent film with live music through Indo-jazz fusion to a tribute concert for Ravi Shankar, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday in 2020. The »Reflektor« programme is rounded off by additional concerts and late-night events.

As one of today's best sitar players, Anoushka Shankar carries the traditional sounds of the Indian subcontinent out into the world. But with the same commitment, the cosmopolitan artist, who has been nominated for a Grammy no fewer than six times, seeks an exchange with other musicians from distant cultures and styles.

She appears with orchestras like the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra as much as with American DJs and British folk musicians, she has been in the studio with George Harrison, Sting and her half-sister Norah Jones, and she has initiated breathtaking encounters between Indian classical music and flamenco, jazz, pop, film music and electronica. And every one of her recordings bears witness to her personal creed: »I have great respect for every culture, so I don't want to use any of them just as an ornament for my own music«.
