Angel Records Announces the September 27th Release of Anoushka Shankar's 'Rise'

SOURCE: Published:
Anoushka Shankar's fourth album for Angel Records, Rise, marks a defining moment in the career of the Grammy-nominated sitarist. Having previously recorded strictly in the classical Indian tradition of her father, the legendary Ravi Shankar, Anoushka truly emerges here as a potent creative force, not only performing on sitar, but also exhibiting her own unique voice as a composer, arranger & producer, as she collaborates with a select crew of virtuoso Eastern and Western musicians wielding a variety of both acoustic & electronic instruments.

“Anoushka Shankar has made her sitar an instrument not just of a silky melody but of a cultural revival... injecting freshness and energy into [traditional Indian music], and broadening its appeal for a younger generation." - TIME Asia
