The Daughter of an Icon Looks Back and Looks Forward.
Just got a peak at the forthcoming Anoushka Shankar album, Traces of You. Just to judge from the EPK, it could be her best album yet. Produced by Nitin Sawhney and featuring vocals from Shankar’s sister, Norah Jones, it appears to be a blend of traditional music with a modernist sensibility and a reflection on her father, Indian sitar icon, Ravi Shankar, who passed away last year. Anoushka studied literally at the feet of her father and brings not only his impeccable technique to her music, but his raging musical curiosity and eclecticism. Expect to hear this album a lot on Echoes this fall.
