Roll of Honour

Growing up in the US and India and learning from her father, legendary sitar player Pandit Ravi Shankar, Anoushka Shankar has constantly worked towards justifying her illustrious lineage. But even she would not have factored in a Grammy nomination in a category where she is pitted against her father for the hallowed gramophone. Both Anoushka and Pandit Ravi Shankar are in the fray in the Best World Music Album Category this year. While Pandit Ravi Shankar has been nominated for The Living Room Sessions Part-1 an album that comprises a recorded session with tabla player

Tanmoy Bose in his living room last year,

Anoushka has been nominated for her album Traveller, in which she has experimented with foot-tapping flamenco music. Among others vying for the trophy in the category are Hawaiian producer-songwriter Daniel Ho, South African musician Hugh Ramopolo Masekela and Mali-based music duo Amadou & Mariam. The awards will be announced on February 10.
