Traces of You, featuring three new songs with Norah Jones!
After the great success of her DG debut Traveller which spent 6 weeks in the top 10 of the Billboards World Music chart and received a Grammy nomination, Anoushka Shankar returns with another outstanding recording: Traces of You, featuring three new songs with her half-sister, Norah Jones.
Named Best Artist (Songlines Awards 2012) for Traveller its hybridism feels as natural as conversation (The New York Times) sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar has created a strikingly original new album.
Produced by British composer and multi-instrumentalist Nitin Sawhney, Traces of You features contributions by Anoushkas longtime associates: tabla genius Tanmoy Bose, flutist Ravichandra Kulur, and percussion wizard Pirashanna Thevarajah. Other highlights are a musical exploration of the unique sound of the Hang drum, played by its foremost exponent, Manu Delago.
Traces of You draws on Indian classical ragas, Western classical string arrangements, mid-20th century-style lyrics of extended poetry and modern soundscapes.
Filmmaker Joe Wright (Atonement, Anna Karenina, Pride & Prejudice) has filmed a music video for the title track, Traces of You, featuring Anoushka and Norah.

Another traffic album. Her sitar sounds great with Nora on guitar. The music is clear, very high energy at times! I love certain Indian music. Her performances fall right in there! Read morePublished 4 months ago by Dennis F.
