ANOUSHKA SHANKAR Home

Four-time Grammy nominated Anoushka Shankar is one of today´s most distinguished and versatile classical cross-genre sitar performers and composers. Her unique approach to classical music and world music genres is both highly artistic and commercially appealing to a wide audience.
After Traveller and Traces of You this pure Indian classical album is Anoushka´s third release on Deutsche Grammophon and 8th solo album recorded right at her HOME studio in London.
Inspired by her classical upbringing and teaching by her legendary father, Maestro Ravi Shankar this album offers both meditative and virtuoso Indian classical raga for Solo Sitar with ensemble.
With Home Anoushka continues her journey exploring modern and fresh ways to reinterpret and keep alive the beautiful musical traditions of India, as taught to her by her father Ravi Shankar.

There is an intimate warmth and bloom about this classical sitar album, which is largely thanks to Anoushka Shankar's sublime playing, but is also due to the beautiful sound quality. . . ["Raga Jogtshwad"]: In the slow opening "alap" there's a tangible feeling of the warm evening air, scents and heightened emotions. It's something to bask and revel in . . . [on "tabla" Shankar is joined by Tanmoy Bose, who] plays a gentle and un-showy seven-beat rupaktaal. Even when it gets elegantly nimble towards the end, it feels like a performance among friends, rather than a display . . . "Khamaj" is thought of as a sensual raga and she brings out its arabesque-like qualities with delicate tracery in a shimmering conclusion. (Record Review / Simon Broughton, Songlines / 01.
