GINGGER SHANKAR, who trained in Kalakshetra, is all set to make waves in the Sundance Festival. ‘Project Syria’ directed by Nonny de la Pena has music composed by Gingger. The film has recently made it to the line-up for Robert Redford’s 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

 The  granddaughter of legendary Ravi Shankar and part of one of the world’s most acclaimed and influential musical families.  Gingger  has been composing music for various films including award- winning Circumstance directed by Maryam Keshavarz, Monsoon Shootout directed by Amit Kumar which premiered at Cannes 2014, and Brahmin Bulls directed by Mahesh Pailoor which just hit screens in the US.  She most recently scored music for the virtual reality 3D documentary feature film called Project Syria.

The daughter of L Subramaniam and the grandniece of Pt Ravi Shankar, this musical prodigy has been quietly making waves for years. Gingger is the only woman in the world to play the double violin. She debuted as a soprano vocalist at Carnegie Hall in the opera Ainadamar and has worked with the likes of the Smashing Pumpkins.  Her own record, Beautiful Imperfections, is set to release early next year in the US, followed by a tour.
