Four times Grammy nominated Anoushka Shankar is one of today´s most distinguished and versatile classical cross-genre sitar performers and composers. Her unique approach to classical music and world music genres is both highly artistic and commercially appealing to a wide audience. After Traveller and Traces of You, this pure Indian classical album is Anoushka´s third release on Deutsche Grammophon and 8th solo album and was recorded right at her HOME studio in London. Inspired by her classical upbringing and teaching by her legendary father, Maestro Ravi Shankar this album offers both meditative and virtuoso Indian classical raga for Solo Sitar with ensemble. With "Home" Anoushka continues her journey exploring modern and fresh ways to reinterpret and keep alive the beautiful musical traditions of India, as taught to her by her father Ravi Shankar.
