Traces of You (Full Album)

Traces of You (Full album out 1st week Oct)

October 2nd, 2013

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.

I am Rising

February 13th, 2013

Below is the letter sent out in my name to support One Billion Rising.

Please sign the petition, then rise up!


I am Rising.

As an Indian woman, I have suffered various forms of groping, touching and verbal abuse. As an Indian woman I have had to deal with fear – of being judged, of sexual assault, of walking alone at night. But it’s not just India – I was shocked to find out that globally, one in three women will be raped or beaten in her lifetime. That’s ONE BILLION mothers, daughters, sisters, partners and friends violated.

This needs to change! One Billion Rising is a promise that we will rise up, irrespective of our gender or nationality to say “Enough! The violence ends now!”

On February 14th, 2013, we want one billion women and those who love them to walk out, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence.

I will join them too. I will rise and dance with the amazing women and men of India. This is a call for you, to join me and pledge to rise up, and take a stand.
Sign the pledge, and rise with me. Let’s heal and transform ourselves to transform this world.


Anoushka Shankar
