Following previous sell out performances in Queen Elizabeth Hall, Anoushka Shankar returns with an evening of Raga-Flamenco music featuring pieces from her first CD on Deutsche Grammophon.

Traveller brings together the passionate and diverse music of Spain and the vibrant, ancient forms of the Indian classical tradition.

The project was inspired by Anoushka’s desire to trace the historic links between Indian and Spanish musical traditions brought to Spain by the Rajasthani gypsies.
