The American Grammy-winner will headline A Summer’s Day in Mumbai before moving on to play shows in New Delhi and Bangalore.
Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Norah Jones will be touring India this March. Jones will headline A Summer’s Day Festival in Mumbai on March 3, which she will follow up with performances in New Delhi on March 5 and Bangalore on March 8. Norah Jones began her music career in 2001 when she released a set of samples called First Sessions, but her 2002 debut album Come Away With Me catapulted her into the global spotlight. The album reached the top of the US Billboard 200, UK Album Chart and Australian Albums Chart, and its singles ‘Don’t Know Why’ and ‘Come Away With Me’, proved to be instant radio hits. Jones then swept the 45th Grammy Awards winning five awards including ‘Best New Artist’, ‘Album Of The Year’ and ‘Record Of The Year’. Come Away With Me was awarded diamond certification by the RIAA, and has sold more than 26 million copies since its release.
Jones followed this up by releasing her second album, 2004′s critically and commercially successful Feels Like Home, for which she bagged another three Grammy Awards. The singer-songwriter released other albums such as Not Too Late and The Fall before releasing a compliation called …Featuring, which features collaborations she has made with a wide variety of artists such as The Foo Figthers, Outkast, Herbie Hancock, Talib Kweli, Belle and Sebastian and many others. Last year, she released her latest album, Little Broken Hearts. Jones is the daughter of legendary sitar player, Ravi Shankar (who recently passed away), and the half-sister of Anoushka Shankar, a frequent visitor to the country, who also headlined the Delhi edition of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender 2012, in October last year.
