The Texas Tech University Presidential Lecture and Performance Series brings World Music superstar, Anoushka Shankar, to Lubbock on Friday, March 30th at 7:00 pm in the Allen Theatre, located in the Student Union Building (SUB) of Texas Tech University.

Shankar breaks new ground in her newest album and Allen Theatre show, Traveller:A Raga-Flamenco Journey, showcasing the evolutionary bridge between flamenco and Indian music.

Using sitar, tabla, bansuri flute, percussion, Spanish guitar and voice, musical pioneer Anoushka Shankar employs her stunning virtuosity to create a powerful and mesmerizing collection of new pieces that show yet again an artist at the very top of her game.

Included in the catalogue of Anoushka Shankar recordings is the Grammy nominated Live at Carnegie Hall. This 2001 recording brought her the honor of being the youngest person ever nominated in the category of "Best World Music Album." This was the first of two Grammy nominations. Shankar has toured with her experimental group "The Anoushka Shankar Project" since 2007.  She has also shared the stage with artists such as Peter Gabriel, Herbie Hancock, Elton John, Madonna, Nina Simone, Sting, and James Taylor — and in 2008 made a five-city duet tour of India with the legendary rock band, Jethro Tull.

There will be an opportunity to meet the artist at a CD signing immediately following the concert.

General Admission tickets are $15.00 and are available through all Select-A-Seat locations (806) 770-2000 or www.selectaseatlubbock.com.  TTU Students receive one free ticket with valid ID at the SUB information booth located at the entrance to the Allen Theatre on the campus of Texas Tech University.
