Anoushka Shankar – Land Of Gold (Deutsche Grammophon)

anoushkaA brilliant new expression of the musical genius of Ravi Shankar’s daughter, in extensive collaboration with Manu Delgado (featured on Hang & percussion), & contributions by M.I.A, Vanessa Redgrave, & others (Alev Lenz, vocs; Sanjeev Shankar, shehnai; Larry Grenadier, bass; Caroline Dale, cello, etc.). The contributions of Anoushka’s sitar are sometimes subtle but always gorgeous. The CD’s theme was inspired by the juxtaposition of the birth of Anoushka’s second child & painful images of refugee children from Syria & elsewhere; especially the child who washed up on a Turkish beach… The music is exceedingly thoughtful and quite emotional. Not to be missed…
