Talking about dad, Anoushka, who started taking music lessons from him almost as a toddler, says, “Dad was strict as a musician and pampering as a father. We had some delineations within our relationship. But ya, as a guru he was very strict. But that wasn’t about him wanting to prove myself. In fact for both my parents, it was about playing for myself… if it made me happy, then they wanted to help support me.”
A multi-tasking mum to a two-and-a-half-year-old son, ask Anoushka, who’s currently touring India with her Traces of You concert, if she would ever want to relocate here, and she takes you by surprise. “India’s always been a second home for me. It’s always been somewhere, where I have come every year, my parents always had a house here. I went to school for several years as a kid. In between due to my hectic schedules, I couldn’t come as often but now, having a child, who’s half English, half Indian, it’s very important for me to continue to keep India be a central part of his life so it’s likely that we’ll relocate here at some point in my life,” signs off the the youngest ever Grammy nominee.
