Pandit Ravishankar- One of the pioneers in bringing Indian classical music to the west. Even at the ripe old age of 92, he performs at concerts. Taking Indian music to global audiences and incorporating Western elements in his repertoire, Shankar has successfully passed on his glorious lineage to his daughter Anoushka, 31, who performs with him besides charting out a successful independent career. From the days of her first public performance when she was only 13 to her latest album, Traveller (2011), Anoushka is the face of a new wave of Indian classical music that marries tradition with contemporary innovation. The duo will be competing against each other at the 55th Grammy Awards, with both being nominated in the same Best World Music Album category. In an email conversation moderated by India Today senior correspondent Tithi Sarkar, they reminisce about the early years of the father-daughter and guru-shishya relationship between them and how classical music has evolved.
