Album Review

The daughter of Ravi Shankar and young prodigy of the sitar has long been a star of the world music circuit on her own, not merely due to her virtuoso credentials, but also for her willingness to explore the possibilities of the classical sitar within other musical genres and traditions. For her seventh album, Anoushka Shankar sets her sights on the links between Hindu and flamenco music, and — almost logically — turns to producer Javier Limón, arguably the key figure in the development of flamenco fusion in the past decade. Although her sitar playing remains the focal point of the album, Shankar is joined by superb musicians from both sides of the equation: Sandra Carrasco, Ramón Porrina, Álvaro Antona, Pepe Habichuela, Pedro Ricardo Miño, Pirashanna Thevarajah, Sanjeev Shankar, Padma Shankar, Shalini Patnaik, and Kenji Ota. Inevitably, the results are as intriguing as they are beautiful, one of the key world music releases of 2011.

Customer Reviews

Wow!

Love this album! So glad she decided to try something different. The flamenco fusion is perfect. Just the right amount, not too overdone. I enjoyed every song. Would love to see her live!

Indialucia

Love the album. Great collaboration with the Indian and flamenco…. but, I didn't get the digital booklet with my purchase.

"World Music" At Its Best!

This album was an amazing fusion between Spanish flamenco and Hindustani classical music. Anoushka is a fabulous sitar player to begin with, but the style change, along with overflowing creativity makes this among my favorite albums of all time. I know that Pandit Ravi-ji, Anoushka's dad and possibly the most famous sitar player in the world listens to this record with a huge smile on his face and immense pride / love for his daughter in his heart. You go Anoushka!
