Anoushka Shankar is set to perform on at Duke University’s Page Auditorium in Durham, North Carolina on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at 8:00 pm.
To begin her exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon, the superlative sitarist Anoushka Shankar enlisted top players from India and Spain to record Traveller, promptly breaking new ground between South Asian classical and Spanish dance music — as befits the innovative legacy of her father and mentor, the great Ravi Shankar.
With a highly original mix of percussion, winds, and vocalists from India and Spain, Shankar and her ensemble condense Gypsy music’s thousand-year migration from India to Europe into one exceptional evening at Page Auditorium, where Andalusian flamencos and Carnatic ragas merge seamlessly.
Saturday, April 14 • 8 pm
Tickets: $42 • $34 • $22 • $5 Duke students
Tickets for all concerts on sale through Duke Performances’ website: www.dukeperformances.org, at the Duke University Box Office on the top level of the Bryan Center, or by calling (919) 684-4444.
