John Diliberto and Anoushka Shankar on Echoes

Ravi Shankar passed away in December of 2012. He left an incredible legacy, scores of disciples and two daughters who have achieved their own kind of fame, Anoushka Shankar and Norah Jones.  The two sisters got together while Shankar was in the process of dying and recorded a beautiful homage called Traces of You.  At the same time, Indian-English producer Nitin Sawhney had lost his own father.  He joined Anoushka to produce the album, co-compose more than half the tracks and play guitar and  piano and programming.  I talk about traces of those who’ve passed with Anoushka Shankar and Nitin Sawhney.

Traces of YouAnoushka Shankar: I kind of started making a record that was going to be about life, and life is a journey and the journey kind of became things I couldn’t have anticipated, but that was kind of the whole ironic point really…is that, is that it is a journey and so I just sort of allowed myself to, to follow that.

Anoushka Shankar on “In Jytoti’s Name”: No, it’s angry. That sitar melody came from a place of rage, you know.  I was really angry and kind of wrote a melody that was quite minor and dark, and yet you know, by the time I was adding the percussion and stuff, but you know, there’s anger and there’s also a passing through that anger that has to happen.

Anoushka Shankar’s Family Affair

August 17, 2013

The Daughter of an Icon Looks Back and Looks Forward.

Traces of YouJust 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.
