Breathing under Water is the soundtrack of a journey created by two of the most visionary talents pioneering the hip and fertile overlap of today's world music scene. Anoushka Shankar and Karsh Kale expanded beyond cultural and traditional borders of music on their new collaboration. With the help of featured guests Ravi Shankar, Sting, Norah Jones, Midival Punditz, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, and others, the duo has succeeded in blending Indian classical, electronica, dance, and folk into a genre hopping triumph.

Format: Audio CD
The sitargoddess Anoushka started her career with three brilliant classical albums, showing both ability, talent and spiritual depth. But it was first with her last album "Rise" she really took a giant leap forward and stepped out on her own.

On this beautiful album she has teamed up with percussionwizzard Karsh Kale, probably best known for his great drumming on inummerable Bill Laswell productions. On this album Karsh, who has co-written most tracks with Anoushka, mostly has the role of multiinstrumentalist, playing guitar, bass, keyboards, while his considerable rythmic talents are more downplayed.

The are some illustrious guests in the shape of Sting and Anoushka's (half)sister Norah Jones, and both provide stellar performances on what's clearly two of the best tracks. Elsewhere it's a host of classical trained Indian vocalists and musicians who sprinkle up things, like Vishwa Mohan Bhatt on slide guitar and Ajay Prassana on a very lyrical bansuri (bamboo flute). But the dominant factor apart from Anoushka and Kale is the strings arranged by Salim Merchant, a very tasteful Bollywood arranger. Reminding me of Ravi Shankar and Philip Glass' collaboration "Passages".

Most tracks are brilliant Indian electronica-fusion, in the style of Midival Punditz and Tabla Beat Science, but things rise to a transcendental high, when father Ravi joins the procedures on the beautiful "Oceanic", pt. 1 & 2, co-written with Anoushka. Amazing with what mastery he still plays the physical demanding sitar at the tender age of 86, and how Consciousness and Bliss seem to emanate from each note. And the album ends in similar meditative mood with the breathtakingly beautiful "Reprise".

If you are a fan of all things asian, esspecially fusion and electronica, then this cd was made for you. Karsh Kale is a star and trancends the boundaries of style and aproach on this CD. Anoushka is a fabulous sitarist (learning from her famous father Mr. Ravi Shankar) and sows her skills throughout this album. The compositions are on another level as they flow seemlessly from Indian classical to rock and electronica. Sting is amazing as well. There are so man great guests on this album including Salim Merchant, the Midival Punditz and Anoushkas sister Norah Jones, even Ravi makes an appearancel. Both Shankar and Kale shine bright throughout this journey as they take us into the next paradigm of music.

Whilst the music on this CD has Indian overtones throughout, it is a wonderful mixture of evocative styles that work well together. The intermingling of flamenco guitar with the sitar of Anoushka is just sublime, and the vocals are also great - one track being notable for having Sting as the lead vocalist. Anoushka is an accomplished musician in her own right, but she has successfully brought together a number of different styles here, smoothing the edges of Indian music and making it more than acceptable to 'western' ears. In my view, if you like a little Indian flavour with your music, this is a CD for you; I would recommend it to anyone, especially those who are connected with India in some way, perhaps through yoga.

Having the previous individual works from these two artists which have been in some cases noteable, this album is at best mediocre, inspite of the virtuosity of the musicians involved in its production. I hope that this isn't a begining of a trend, although I think Karsh Kale hasn't achieved the levels of his earlier works for a while now. This album can in no way be likened to anything as brilliant, innovative and exciting of that of Midival Punditz/Midival Times, if anything Kale & Shankar should listen to the afore mentioned & take note.

Breathing under water stands on its own as wonderful entertainment. For a westener striving to cross the cultuaral barrier of eartern scales, it has added value. The melodies blend sympathetically.
