Shankar 100Various artists, led by members of his family, celebrate the life and music of the innovative musician and composer. 2020 marks 100 years since the birth of Indian musician and Sitar maestro Ravi Shankar. The Southbank Centre - a venue he had a 60-year association with - celebrates this landmark with a gala concert featuring his daughters Anoushka Shankar and Norah Jones, Nitin Sawhney and Olivia Harrison. Further tributes come from Akram Khan Company which presents Kaash, and London Philharmonic Orchestra as it performs Ravi Shankar's final work as well as his only symphony. BFI Southbank screens films scored by Ravi Shankar, and an exhibition featuring objects from his archive goes on display in the Royal Festival Hall where a specially-commissioned film fills the public spaces.
