Traces Of You

Traces Of You by Anoushka Shankar
Released: Oct 2013
Label:
Don't ignore Anoushka Shankar's seventh album title -- it packs a wallop of meaning. Its nostalgia is mirrored in the album's lingering, longing mood, though it could also refer to Shankar's trademark of interweaving sonic pieces: Indian classical and baroque, gamelan and Americana. But most powerful is the familial meaning. Nearly a year after her dad's death, Ravi's spirit is everywhere, especially on his daughters' first collaboration. Anoushka's sitar picks up where her half-sister Norah Jones' vocals leave off on the mesmerizing title track, and their opening duet will break your heart.
