World-renowned heir to her father Ravi Shankar’s iconic legacy, sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar has built her career on transcending genres and musical boundaries, mixing styles that range from flamenco to electronica, and collaborating with such diverse luminaries as Herbie Hancock, Patti Smith, Joshua bell, Ibeyi and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Here, together with a selection of solo pieces, she joins forces with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra to revisit her father’s Concerto No.3 for sitar and orchestra, in which she featured on its Carnegie Hall premiere in 2009. Embodying a dynamic dialogue between Indian and Western classical tradition, this rhythmically intricate, soulfully melodic work evokes a young girl’s journey into maturity.

Combining the ancient Sufi devotional tradition of qawwali with modern orchestral arrangements, the Orchestral Qawwali Project features the soaring vocals of Abi Sampa, the UK’s first female qawwal, together with tabla player Amrit Singh, and singer/composer Rushil, whose innovative scores to both classical and original qawwalis are performed by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
