Kate Hutchinson with Anoushka Shankar
Monthly show from Kate Hutchinson, Guardian music and culture journalist, broadcaster and DJ from London. She is also the former Clubbing Editor at Time Out and is still waiting impatiently for the fidget-house revival.
For this month’s show, Kate is joined by sitar innovator and Grammy-nominated musician Anoushka Shankar
, bringing with her a selection of tracks by powerful women who have influenced her to date, spanning Indian classical, electronic-pop and spoken word, and discussing how Cuban-French twins Ibeyi helped her find her new musical direction, motherhood and MIA, growing up with her father Ravi Shankar and her plans for his centenary shows next year with sister Norah Jones, and why it’s time to put cliches about Indian music to rest.
