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.

I would also like to add that the record is very good quality. I ran it through my RCM once, on principle, but it is crystal clear and extremely well mastered.
Highly recommend this LP.
This is definitely an album that only improves upon repeated listening.
I found my way to her by virtue of my fandom of Norah Jones. Then by awakening to her fathers music again and then to discovering her half sister Anoushka and this album is my first exposure to her. Strange as it may seem for this old time Country Music & Guitar fan. The tone of the sitar and her virtuosity of this is fascinating. Even though I am still discovering as well as the Sitar, Mohan Veena and West African Kora. Similar, capitivating and beautiful all! Blue
