Musician Anoushka Shankar took to social media to share a very special tribute to her late father Ravi Shankar. As part of his hundredth anniversary, Anoushka had planned concerts to celebrate the sitar maestro. However, amid the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, she has had to cancel them.
But that doesn’t mean that she would let the day be forgotten.
Anoushka took to social media to share a very special tribute wherein she asked some of her father’s students to record the ‘Sanghya Raga’. The result is a beautiful melody come to life.
Here’s what Anoushka wrote on social media:
“As part of the preparation for the Centenary concerts, I’ve been having an illuminating time delving into my father’s catalogue to make new arrangements of some of his incredible compositions. I couldn’t bear the thought that we wouldn’t be playing any of it tonight, so I asked many of my father’s students to record from their own homes around the world so we could play for you. Here is a taster of what you will hear when we reschedule these shows!”
