The Indian Classical Music Circle of Austin (ICMCA) presented an evening with Grammy-winning sitarist and composer Anoushka Shankar at the Riverbend Center in Austin, TX, on March 9.
Daughter of the Late sitar legend Pandit Ravi Shankar, Anoushka is a regular figure in the Indian classical and progressive world music scenes. A range of recordings from Indian classical ragas to her more creatively experimental work has already produced 10 highly-acclaimed albums and a DVD film-score to an Indian silent movie.
The ICMCA is Austin’s leading organization for the promotion of Indian classical arts in the Central Texas area. Founded in 1991, ICMCA has, in its 27-year history, conducted more than 200 concerts in Austin, with cumulative attendance at events exceeding 50,000 to date.
