Traces of You (Full album out 1st week Oct)
Anoushka Shankar returns to the forefront of ‘Progressive World Music’ with the release of her highly anticipated seventh studio album entitled “Traces Of You”. Produced by long time friend and critically acclaimed multi musician and composer Nitin Sawhney, “Traces Of You” is inspired by the idea that everything in the universe leaves an indelible mark, or a subtle “trace” on everything it comes into contact with. Featuring appearances by her half-sister Norah Jones, noted Hang exponent Manu Delago, world-reknowned percussionists Tanmoy Bose and Pirashanna Thevarajah, and others. Ground-breaking as ever, Anoushka debuts a breathtaking new musical union, pairing the sitar with the intricate sounds of a relatively new instrument the Hang Drum, played by it’s foremost exponent Manu Delago. Three forms of love, love for her father, her husband, and her son, proved to be the ultimate inspiration for some of the deepest and most personal music Anoushka has yet written.
Releasing on the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label internationally on 4th October, and 7th October in the UK, “Traces Of You” looks set to mark a new chapter in Anoushka’s career, defining her creative vision and punctuating her unique instrumental career.
