A beautiful journey by Ravi's girl.

THE daughter of legendary sitar player Ravi Shankar returns to Birmingham Town Hall on Monday with her new acoustic project, Sudakshini.

Anoushka Shankar, who was taught to play sitar by her father, will perform newly-composed ragas and traditional South Indian music during the presentation, which translates as A Beautiful Journey Southwards.

She will be joined by Tanmoy Bose (tabla), Ravichandra Kulur (flute, kanjira), Pirashanna Thevarajah (mridangam, kanjira, ghatam) and Nick Able (tanpura).

Anoushka continues to champion the music of her father, and premiered his Sitar Concerto No 3 in 2009 to great acclaim.

She made her Town Hall debut in 2008 with the Anoushka Shankar Project and has appeared previously at Symphony Hall with her father.
