“With nine Grammy nominations under her belt, Shankar is firmly established as the 21st century’s most innovative sitar player.”—Pitchfork

Anoushka Shankar returns to Athens for the first time in 25 years with a new band of musicians and a new, multifaceted and dynamic new sound. Together they perform music from her two recent mini-albums, Chapter I: Forever, For Now, and Chapter II: How Dark it is Before Dawn, as well as the forthcoming Chapter III alongside thoroughly shaken-up, reinterpreted gems from her previous releases, including the Grammy-nominated live album Between Us…

Anoushka marks 30 years of performing in 2025 with this band that has been hailed as one of the best ensembles to have toured with her across her performing career. Their energy and camaraderie on stage is unmatched as she pioneers a new sound through inventive arrangements, sensitive virtuosity, and a neoclassical approach to the music tradition to which she belongs.
