Sitarist Anoushka Shankar is currently working on her ninth album “Land of Gold”, which talks about the ongoing refugee crisis in the world.
The 34-year-old sitarist, who is on a month long tour in India, said through the record she aims to bring peace in the society.
“My current album, which I am working on now, is very focused on the refugee crisis. That is something which has been influencing me a lot… It’s important to remember that what happened in Paris is a tragedy, Syria is also a tragedy.
There are so many tragedies all over,” Anoushka told PTI.
Unlike her classical base of her latest album “Home”, which has earned the musician her fifth Grammy nomination, her upcoming project will be a crossover.
“‘Land of Gold’ means everyone is searching their land of gold that means a place for safety and security for children.
It won’t be based on classical music.”
