This Prom will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 at 19:30 BST and then on BBC Four at 20:00 BST.

Please note that it will not be possible to have an audience at the Royal Albert Hall for this concert.

Boundary-crossing, multi-Grammy-nominated sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar returns to the Proms, showcasing two of her most recent collaborations.

In the centenary year of her father Ravi Shankar’s birth and with the aim of presenting ‘ragas and the sitar in a new light’, she combines recordings of some of his works both with her own sitar improvisations and with live electronics by composer/producer Gold Panda.

Alongside conductor and arranger Jules Buckley, Anoushka Shankar has produced new arrangements of her own pieces for the Britten Sinfonia strings, who are joined by her regular collaborator percussionist Manu Delago. Among them are Wandering Around, Voice of the Moon, Land of Gold and Chasing Shadows.
