The CD and DVD set Ravi & Anoushka Shankar Live in Bangalore (East Meets West Music) is set for release on September 11, 2015. This sound and video recording was made on February 7, 2012, two months before his 92nd birthday. Ravi Shankar performed with his daughter Anoushka at the sold-out Bangaluru Palace grounds in Bangalore, India.
The program included ‘Raga Yaman Kalyan’, ‘Raga Tilak Shyam’, and ‘Raga Khamaj’. Ravi and Anoushka Shankar performed for over three hours in front of an ecstatic audience.
“It was my good fortune to perform worldwide in concert alongside my father over a period of nearly 20 years. It would be no exaggeration to say I’ve not shared the same level of musical intuitiveness and intimacy with anyone else. As our final live performance in the country of our, and our music’s, origin, this concert DVD is a beautiful example of my father’s inspiring mastery near the end of his life, and for me, a keepsake to remind me of what we shared together,” says Anoushka Shankar
