Sandeep Das, 46, trained under Kishan Maharaj and has been performing with The Silk Road Ensemble ever since it was formed in 2000. This was his third year at the Grammys - he was nominated for Best Classical Crossover Album in 2009 and Best World Music Album in 2005.
Anoushka Shankar, who attended the Grammys dressed in a Sabyasachi outfit, was accompanied by her husband, British filmmaker Joe Wright. "Very excited that this man is my date to the #grammys today! It's the first time he's been free to join me," she tweeted before the show.
Anoushka received her first Grammy nomination at age 20. She has been nominated several times ever since, without having won. Her father, late sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar, won two Grammys and two in collaborations.
The Grammy Awards 2017 were held in Los Angeles and British singer Adele scored maximum trophies including the top three - Song Of The Year and Record Of The Year for Hello and Album Of The Year for 25.
