In Fall 2023 Anoushka Shankar brings to North America a new quintet of musicians, with whom she has carved out a new, multifaceted and dynamic sound as they perform music from her newly-released mini-album alongside thoroughly shaken-up, reinterpreted gems from her previous releases including last year’s Grammy-nominated live album Between Us…The quintet, representing the very best of the thriving London music scene, comprises of clarinetist Arun Ghosh, drummer-composer Sarathy Korwar, Carnatic percussionist Pirashanna Thevarajah, and bassist Tom Farmer, each of whom are startlingly-talented solo artists in their own right.
Premiered for the first time in India in December 2022, this quintet has been hailed as one of the best ensembles to have toured with Anoushka across her 28-year global performing career. The energy and camaraderie on stage is unmatched as Shankar leads the way in pioneering a new sound through inventive arrangements, sensitive virtuosity and a neoclassical approach to the music tradition to which she belongs.
