No career advice from papa for sitarist Anoushka Shankar

Sitarist Anoushka Shankar, daughter of sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar, says that though her father has been in the field for decades, he never interferes in her professional life and lets her do her own thing.

"My father gives me a lot of advice as a teacher in terms of my music, but not in terms of career. He lets me do my own thing. I'm separate in that way. But in music he is very much my guide and my guru; so I try and learn from him as much as I can," Anoushka told IANS.

The prodigy who was in Delhi to promote the Anoushka Shankar Project is best known for her critically acclaimed music album "Rise" that released in 2005.
