Anoushka Shankar stopped at The Rhode Island Center for Performing Arts at the historic Park Theatre in Cranston on November 22, 2013. It was the 2nd to last performance of the North American leg of the tour in support of her seventh studio album “Traces of You” which was released in October.
Shankar began the evening’s performance with the song “Voice of the Moon” from her 2005 album “Rise.” From the very first note, the audience was enthralled while listening to the flowing piece. It was amazing to watch and hear Shankar and her band play through complicated bridges perfectly, and the audience showed their appreciation with applause during those moments.
Shankar displays passion and joy while performing, and that spirit is clearly heard in her music. The feeling radiates to the audience who transcended from their daily lives clearly did not want the performance to end.
