SONGLINES Magazine names Anoushka Shankar’s Traveller one of the ten best albums of 2011!
With its East/West mix of Indian Classical music and Spanish Flamenco, Traveller will satisfy the improvisor in every listener. From the Guardian: “allows her to demonstrate her inspired instrumental work in the company of Indian musicians and the flamenco elite, including the producer and guitarist Javier Limón. The best tracks are those where Shankar takes chances, matching uninhibited sitar improvisation against flamenco percussion and the furious, inspired piano work of Pedro Ricardo Miño on the thrilling Buleria Con Ricardo, or backing the passionate singing of Duquende or more thoughtful Concha Buika. There are occasional less exciting, easygoing passages, including the title track, but this is a brave and original set.” Don’t miss this, the next chapter in the Shankar musical tradition!
