Featuring Norah Jones - Produced by Nitin Sawhey 

Anoushka Shankar returns with another outstanding recording: Traces of You, featuring three new songs with her half-sister, Norah Jones.

 2013 release from the sitar player and composer. Traces Of You features three new songs with her half-sister, Norah Jones. Produced by British composer and multi-instrumentalist Nitin Sawhney, Traces of You features contributions by Anoushkas longtime associates: tabla genius Tanmoy Bose, flutist Ravichandra Kulur, and percussion wizard Pirashanna Thevarajah. Other highlights are a musical exploration of the unique sound of the Hang drum, played by its foremost exponent, Manu Delago. Traces of You draws on Indian classical ragas, Western classical string arrangements, mid-20th century-style lyrics of extended poetry and modern soundscapes.

Traces of You developed from the notion that everything in the universe leaves an indelible mark – or a subtle trace – on everything it encounters. Inspired by her relationships, multicultural upbringing and global career, Anoushka traces a journey of love, change and loss.

Produced by British composer and multi-instrumentalist Nitin Sawhney, Traces of You features contributions by Anoushka’s longtime associates, tabla genius Tanmoy Bose, flutist Ravichandra Kulur, and percussion wizard Pirashanna Thevarajah. Other highlights are the collaboration with Norah Jones, and explorations of the unique sound of the Hang drum, played by its foremost exponent, Manu Delago.

Traces of You draws on Indian classical ragas, Western classical string arrangements, mid-20th century-style lyrics of extended poetry and modern soundscapes. Anoushka finds modern and fresh ways to reinterpret and keep alive Indian musical traditions learned from her father, the legendary Ravi Shankar.

Anoushka Shankar was born in London, where she now resides with her husband, director Joe Wright and their son Zubin. By the time she was seven-years old she was also living for extended periods in India and California.
The only artist to be comprehensively trained by her father, Anoushka has been playing and studying the sitar with him since she was nine. At the age of thirteen she made her performing debut in New Delhi — she then entered the studio for the first time to play on her father’s recording, In Celebration.
