Celebrating the artistry of

RAVI SHANKAR
GODFATHER of World Music &
Legendary MASTER of the Sitar

and

ANOUSHKA SHANKAR
>>
Worthy HEIR and Rising STAR
The year 2000 marked the 80th birthday of legendary sitar player and composer Ravi Shankar. A unique figure in the 20th century history of Indian and Western classical music, Ravi Shankar heralded an era of musical cross-fertilization between East and West, as well as between tradition and contemporary trends, greatly impacting musical creation across genres to this very day . His gifted 20 year old daughter Anoushka, having studied the sitar with him the past 11 years and performed in major concert venues, has won much critical acclaim and is considered his obvious and deserving musical heir.

In celebration, FanFaire launched an all new section called "FanFaire World Music" - with the Shankars as the first main feature, and which focuses on the classical music of countries outside the Western tradition.
