Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2011 release, the seventh album from sitar legend Ravi Shankar's daughter. The sitar player and composer has emerged as one of the leading figures in world music having made her first performance when she was just 13-years old. Traveller was produced by Javier Limond. The project, which Anoushka calls a "raga flamenco journey", originated with her wish to retrace the 1000-year-old bond between Indian and Spanish musical traditions.

From the Artist

On signing this agreement, Anoushka Shankar said: "It means so much to me to be able to bring my work to a label that has presented some of my father's most beautiful recordings. I look forward to this new opportunity to explore and express the music I love."

Format: Audio CD
This CD is a true feast for both the ears and the soul. A joyful and serene exploration of the bonds between the classical Indian music forms and the flamenco. Thereby following the legacy of the gypsies which originally came from Rajastan bringing the rhythms and melodies of India to Europe. (A legacy also explored in the collaborations between Paco De Lucia and John McLaughlin).

Amazing how Anoushka Shankar's musical universe has grown from her debut with competent but tentative interpretations of her father's music. To highly succesful experiments with the fusion of the classical tradition and modern day electronica on Rise and Breathing Under Water. Constantly developing and expanding both her compositoric and improvisational skills.

This album is beautifully diverse and innovative. Among the highlights - though all tracks are exquisite - are the guitar/sitar duet "Boy Meets Girls" with Pepe Habichuela and the infectious titletrack.

Marvelous and essential for all lovers of world music, the beauty of the sitar and the spirit of musical adventure.

The Roma of Spain have origins in Rajasthan and the Punjab of northwestern India, and vesitages of their South Asian home exist in traditional flamenco, heard in the improvisations and oscillations of cantaors and in the various 12-beat rhythm patterns of guitar and dance. The polka dots of flamenco dresses are also related to the round mirrors of skirts in India. Thus, it would not be incongruous for sitarist Aoushka Shankar to play with flamenco artists and find spiritual harmony. This album is not entirely fusion. Shankar plays pieces separately and also as accompaniment to flamenco musicians, and they in turn clap and sing in accompaniment to her. Flamenco, of course, is not precisely Indian music, so mixed with European, Arabic, and Judaic elements of Spanish music, and the music here chiefly is Indian in timbre and melody. Percussion is also chiefly Indian. It is Shankar's album, after all. Remarkably, the sound and interplay work very well. Indeed, flamenco and Hindustani musical spirit are the same. Among the Spanish musicians supporting her are Pepe Habichuela, Pedro Ricardo Miño, Juan Ruiz, Sandra Carrasco, and Javier Limón. These some 60 minutes of musical exploration will bring enjoyment to the world music fan. [Please see my Comment below.]

There are few occasions where a person encounters music that is really out of their usual. This album took visits some exotic, romantic, and passionate places that other music will rarely if ever encountered. What's more, it has a timeless and almost placeless sound to it.
I recommend it.

This disc is an excellent choice for people who like a variety of world, ethnic music. Sitar music with a Spanish influence provides good pleasant listening--and a nice change for those of us who like classical Spanish guitar music.

The combination of the inspired sitar playing and the bold flamenco/Spanish numbers, including the cante jondo, make of this record a welcome addition to my record library. Beautiful and haunting throughout. Bravo.

It's amazing how beautiful this music is. I actually have never "gotten into" the sitar until now. I've not minded it before, but I never really got into it. This is the first album that's actually completely left me speechless when it comes to the sitar ... and the collaboration with other styles here is so breathtaking. One reviewer was saying that the collaborations felt contrived and she could not get into it, saying it felt "forced" or like she was trying too hard to invent a new genre. I have the opposite experience. These songs feel so organic, and compelling ... She is definitely channeling something amazing here. Highly highly recommended.

I become more of a fan of Anoushka with each release.

Even though I happen to like "Breathing Under Water" better, nevertheless this is still a 5 star release. I like the fact that this is something very different and I like the fact that Anoushka is pushing the envelope, using the sitar in new and unique musical expressions.

Who knew that Flamenco music originated in India? I did not. But blending Spanish and Indian music as she has done here makes for a very nice musical outing.

I look forward to Anoushka's next surprise!

Very hip, modern and filled with innovation. The first cut stopped me in my tracks because i was expecting the album to sound like her CD Anoushka. After my initial shock, I found myself listening over and over again.
