Description
(2015 Grammy Nominee for Best World Music Album) Surpassing her Grammy-nominated Traveller, Anoushka Shankar has returned with a stunning and soulful crossover release that is winning her new devotees worldwide. Her voice-like sitar in dialogue with sister Norah Jones' vocals is heartbreakingly emotive on the three songs they share, including the first single, "Traces of You." Produced by British composer and multi-instrumentalist Nitin Sawhney, the CD features tabla guru Tanmoy Bose, flutist Ravichandra Kulur, and master percussionist Pirashanna Thevarajah.

"When Indian music icon Ravi Shankar died last year, his daughter … was at work on her seventh album. The recording, Traces of You, became a kind of memorial…. Shankar has blossomed as a composer, unafraid to experiment with form and instrumentation…. While Jones is a tremendously versatile and supple musician, we hear a new side of her on 'The Sun Won't Set.' To appreciate this song, it helps to know that Ravi Shankar's first name means 'sun' in Sanskrit."—NPR

"One of the most exciting tracks is a sitar and guitar duet called 'River Pulse'…. A personal album indeed."—Songlines, UK

"Particularly impressive are the tender grooves of tracks like 'Laysa' and 'Fathers'."—Die Presse, Vienna

"'Unsaid' –Several weeks after our father's passing, I flew to New York to record with Norah, and wrote these lyrics on the plane. She sat at the piano trying out a new melody, and as she sang, I realised she was singing phrases that were astonishingly close to the beloved musical theme our father wrote for Satyajit Ray's film 'Pather Panchali' decades ago. I asked her about it, and she told me she'd never heard that melody before. It is small, inexplicable moments like these that fill me with gratitude and awe."—Anoushka Shankar
