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.

Customer Reviews

Those who like I enjoy classical music will especially enjoy this CD.

Her rich and at times smoky voice pairs beautifully with the sitar and accompanying instruments.

This album finally reaches the heights that I had previously hoped her music would reach.

This album was inevitable. The two daughters of Ravi Shankar, both talented in their own fashion, have come together in honor of their late father and produced an extraordinarily fine album of contemporary world fusion tunes with an Indian flavor, thanks to Anoushka Shankar's sweet and precise sitar. Except for one track with Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Shankar is the composer. She had the assistance of producer Nitin Sawhney, who was personally responsible for arrangements and electronic programming. Instrumentation is fairly minimal: chiefly the sitar, the piano of Norah Jones and Sawhney, cello, hang ("han", a hollow-sounding, flying saucer-shaped metallophone of nitrited steel played by hand), some percussion (mridangam, ghatam, tabla), tanpura drone, shehnai double reed, bansuri flute, and on one track guitars, ukelele, and glockenspiel, plus electronic programming. Jones sings on three tracks. The music varies from the style of Hindustani dhuns and thumri (light classical and folk melodies) to free jazz (Scandanavian style) to Vedic chant. Some tracks are based on ragas, Shree for "In Jyoti's Name" and Manj Khamaj for "Monsoon". In the notes, Shankar provides comments to each track, reflecting on her father and on Hindu philosophy. Lyrics to Jones' songs and the Vedic prayer are also included. As mentioned by Shankar, Jones' song "Unsaid" is similar to her father's theme music to Satyajit Ray's film Pather Panchali, music that she never heard. [I just compared both and it does raise eyebrows.) This is Anoushka's finest nonclassical album to date. The famous German classical label DGG, which long ago had issued some raga performances by Ravi Shankar, recognized her work as a wonderful, beautiful, and meaningful cross-over album. Ravi would have been proud. 56 minutes.

I found some of Anoushka's previous albums to fall short of what I felt was their full potential. This album finally reaches the heights that I had previously hoped her music would reach. Anoushka has always been a phenomenal sitar player, however some of her previous albums had a bit of a cheesy feel to them in their attempts to blend traditional Indian sounds with other genres.

This album is a seamless blend of the enchanting sounds of the sitar, piano, guitar, tabla, and the vocals of Norah Jones. I assume that some adjustments were made to the tuning of the sitar to allow it to blend so phenomenally with the scales and tunings of the western instruments on display. I absolutely recommend this album to anyone with even a passing interest in Indian music or world music. It is incredibly beautiful and soothing to the soul. I cannot wait to hear her next efforts, based on her musical progression thus far.

For anyone who has followed Anoushka Shankar's career it seems evident that she has improved with each album. Going from higly talented to one of the planet's greatest musicians.

A strong composer, an excellent sitarist with a beautiful tone and most importantly an artist with a strong vision. Making a near perfect blend of East and West.

On this album she has cooperated with Nitin Sawhney on most tracks. And come up with a nice very diverse musical adventure. Most of the tracks are instrumentals with a few mantras shown in and really making Indian music that should appeal to a wide audience. And a young audience too. Music that is completely contemporary and at the same time made with deep reverence to the tradition.

Maybe the biggest attraction for most listeners is the fact that half-sister Norah Jones lends her husky voice to three of the tracks.

Visionary and accesible world music at its best.

I failed to read the description carefully enough and bought the CD thinking I would get a heavy does of Norah Jones. When I got the CD, I was initially disappointed by Jones' small role. But I figured, I spent the money, I might as well listen to some sitar tracks, though I had never been a big sitar fan. Shankar blew me away and now I am turning into a sitar fan. The quality of the sound approaches audiophile level, rare for a Deutsche Grammaphone CD. Shankar clearly inherited a lot (all?) of her father's musical talent and is a music heavyweight. Those who like I enjoy classical music will especially enjoy this CD.

I heard about this CD on Echoes with John Diliberto. I'd never heard the sitar used in a "modern" way like this and I had to hear the rest of the album. I am so happy I ordered this! It is so beautiful and relaxing.

Anoushka Shankar has a marvelous talent nurtured by her father's tutelage yet evolved in a way truly her own. This album is experimental in the way Breathing Under Water is (incorporating Western instruments and melodies with traditional ragas) yet far more unified in tone and theme. Half-sister Norah Jones (a very talented artist in her own right) makes several welcome appearances on this album. Her rich and at times smoky voice pairs beautifully with the sitar and accompanying instruments.

This is definitely an album that only improves upon repeated listening.

I attended Anoushka in concert and was extremely impressed. I heard about this CD because Norah Jones is featured, and figured it would be very good. It was no disappointment and I highly recommend it. Both ladies are highly talented, and their collaboration is wonderful. The bulk of the CD is Anoushka and her "band", so don't fool yourself into thinking this is a Norah Jones CD. See Anoushka in concert if you can!
