WMI and Pioneer Works proudly co-present, world-renowned Grammy Award-nominated composer and sitarist Anoushka Shankar
On October 7th, Anoushka Shankar brings her new quintet to Pioneer Works. The ensemble has carved out a multifaceted and dynamic sound as they perform music from her newly-released mini-album alongside thoroughly shaken-up, reinterpreted gems from her previous releases, including last year’s Grammy-nominated live album ‘Between Us‘. The quintet, representing the very best of the thriving London music scene, is composed of clarinetist Arun Ghosh, drummer-composer Sarathy Korwar, Carnatic percussionist Pirashanna Thevarajah, and bassist Tom Farmer, each of whom are startlingly-talented solo artists in their own right.
The WOMEN’S VOICES series celebrates the role that female artists play in the preservation and promotion of their respective cultures and traditions.
