Gingger Shankar is an extraordinarily gifted singer, virtuoso violinist, composer, model and songwriter, and was born into one of the world’s most acclaimed and influential musical families. Her accomplishments include working with top producers and film composers including Mel Gibson, The Smashing Pumpkins, Trent Reznor, Mike Nichols, Mike Myers, and James Newton Howard. In addition to her film projects, she has also has lent her voice and violin to several diverse projects ranging from soundtracks to pop and electronic hip-hop.

 An accomplished artist and performer, Gingger is the only female in the world that has mastered the 10- string Double Violin, an instrument that covers the entire range of the orchestra’s double bass, cello, viola and violin, and of which there are currently only two in existence. Coupled with her voice, which covers five octaves, the sound is unparalleled, unbridled, and unforgettable. She debuted with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as a soprano in Osvaldo Golijov’s opera “Ainadamar” and later performed it at Carnegie Hall. The multi-talented powerhouse transitioned from opera to rock, Gingger then toured with the Smashing Pumpkins as a special guest on their 20th Anniversary tour.

 In 2011 she was chosen as one of Filmmaker Magazine’s ‘25 New Faces to Watch’, as well as becoming a member of the Advisory Board for the Sundance Film Festival along with Mark Ruffalo, Lake Bell, Rashida Jones and others. Gingger composed music for the critically acclaimed 2011 Sundance U.S. Dramatic Audience Award Winner ‘Circumstance’ directed by Maryam Keshavarz. In addition to being the artist and co-composer behind the poignant score of Mel Gibson’s blockbuster “Passion of the Christ”, Gingger’s music can be heard in Mike Nichol’s film, “Charlie Wilson’s War”.

 Her film ‘Monsoon Shootout’ premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. She most recently guested on the new Katy Perry single ‘Legendary Lover’ due out later this year.

 She is currently working on her new record.
