Sitar star Anoushka Shankar on the creation of her father's opera


Sukanya is the late Ravi Shankar's only opera, composed by him at the time of his passing. Exploring the common ground between the music, dance and theatrical traditions of India and the West, and named after Shankar's wife, the opera is now complete with the help his daughter Anoushka.


Bombay Funkadelic spoke to Anoushka to ask her about her thoughts on the project, whether she thinks the opera of Sukanya may appeal to the youth and if we may see her writing her own opera in the near future.
