Anoushka Shankar breaks new ground as she brings together the passionate and diverse music of Spain with the vibrant, ancient forms of the Indian classical tradition. Tracing the Gypsies' musical journey from their homeland in Rajasthan, passing through Iran, Iraq and Armenia, and finally settling in Spain, Anoushka re-forges the link, separated by a thousand years, between Spanish and Indian music.
Anoushka has worked closely with the renowned Flamenco producer Javier Limón, immersing herself in the Spanish forms of flamenco, fandango, buleria and tango. Featuring a number of talented artists, the concert meshes Indian sitar and Spanish guitar with Hindustani vocals and gypsy cante. Flashing rhythms and intricate melodies dance together to create a new energy and a totally unique sound.
