Anoushka Shankar

Ravi's daughter gives us a 'Rise'
Anoushka Shankar’s new album mingles heavy beats
with the sitar and vocals to get a world music feel.
Despite Anoushka Shankar’s frail frame and soft voice, it’s
apparent from the beginning that she’s quite formidable.
It would take someone formidable to compose, produce and
manage about 40 or 50 musicians in recording studios all over
the country, an effort she underwent to bring out her
latest work, Rise.
‘‘I did it very much without the label,’’ Shankar tells us,
‘‘I pretty much handed them the finished album.’’
