It’s rare that an artist makes full use of the singular and spectacular psychoacoustics of the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever — but sitarist Anoushka Shankar is one of the few who truly can, and most likely shall tonight. Still riding off the sparkling success of her 2016 album, Land of Gold, on Deutsche Grammophon, Shankar continues to explore themes ranging from belonging to utopia, using her sitar’s uniquely expressive nuances to maximum effect — and affect, as its supernal sonics exhilarate and wash over you like wet electricity. An especially spiritual outlook flows beneath her music like unseen water giving life to the world above — a perspective of metaphors and metaphysics made particularly poignant given the surroundings of the cemetery; you’re never as close to life as you are when death and transfiguration surrounds you.
