Anoushka Shankar has also recorded two songs with Grammy-winning singer-guitarist Lenny Kravitz.

Sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar was the sole performer at the Cannes Film Festival’s main annual VIP dinner.

“I was very happy to play music for this elite audience and prepared a special set of some of my own music and gorgeous, rarely-heard songs that my father Pandit Ravi Shankar contributed to legendary Indian film scores at the beginning of his career.

It felt appropriate to include some of this amazing film-score music as part of the 100-year celebrations for Indian cinema,” she said, speaking on the occasion.
