Gingger Shankar returns to the Festival (Himalaya Song, 2012 Sundance Film Festival) with a remarkable story of unsung artists Lakshmi and Viji Shankar—a mother and daughter duo who helped bring Indian music to the West in the 1970s though their collaborations with Ravi Shankar and George Harrison.
This splendid, multi-generational mash-up features visually vibrant animations, a plentiful offering from the Shankar family archives, and a live musical performance by Gingger Shankar. Nari triumphantly sings a rich and emotionally moving tribute to Lakshmi Shankar's important yet unsung musical legacy in America.
