Shankar 100

Called 'the godfather of world music' by George Harrison, the influential Indian musician Ravi Shankar was revered in his homeland and credited with bringing the sounds of the Indian raga to the West. He collaborated with artists and composers including Philip Glass, Yehudi Menuhin and John Coltrane. His own works married musical traditions of East and West. 

The centenary of the birth of the seminal musician is marked throughout 2020 in a series of concerts and events. As a Southbank Centre Associate Artist, Ravi Shankar’s musician daughter Anoushka Shankar curates a concert featuring friends and family to mark the occasion, plus there are performances from the London Philharmonic Orchestra and a weekend of events to celebrate.
