Come to Huvila Festival Tent to be entertained by amazing sitar artistry, catchy rhythms and nuanced sound when one of the indisputable top names on the world’s music scene, Anoushka Shankar, arrives at Tokoinranta. The music presented by the enchanting Shankar ranges from traditional Indian music and delicate lyricism to classical minimalistic music and electronic pop.
Shankar, who debuted on the international music scene at the age of 13, learned his art from his father, the sitar master Ravi Shankar. Shankar has received five Grammy nominations and has worked with some of the world’s best orchestras and artists, including Sting, M.I.A., Herbie Hancock, Pepe Habichuela, Karsh Kale, Rodrigo y Gabriela and Joshua Bell.
Shankar’s newest album, Land of Gold, is a strong musical testimony to connections, humanity and hope. Shankar’s production team includes Matt Robertson, best known for his creation of a unique soundscape for Björk.
The evening is topped off by Israeli Mark Eliyahu, who masterfully plays the baglama and kamanche accompanied by his band.
