Sheila Chandra's Global Vocal Fusion: Monsoon at 40: The Echoes Interview
Sheila Chandra is now a heralded singer lauded for her unique vocal style and global fusion heard on many albums including her ground-breaking trilogy on Real World Records: Weaving My Ancestors Voices, The Zen Kiss and Bonecronedrone. But that all began 40 Years ago with the group Monsoon featuring Sheila on vocals. They had a massive hit in England with the song “Ever So Lonely” and now, their debut and only album Third Eye is being reissued. Sadly, due to some complicated medical issues, Sheila cannot sing anymore and she rarely talks but she opened up to John Diliberto as they took a walk back to Monsoon’s Third Eye and the new deluxe package that has rare live performances, alternate takes, demos and B-sides.
