I bought this for my brother and I'm sure he'll love it. My ears are not tuned for quarter tones and I find a little flamenco goes a long way, but the musicianship is stunning. You can hear the Indian and the Spanish, and they blend and intertwine like a perfectly-mixed marble cake, swirling through each other into a whole more interesting than either part.

The influence of Indian classical music and flamenco on western pop and jazz has a considerable history, as witness John Coltrane (the album Olé, and India on the classic Impressions), the Beatles and the Stones, Miles Davis (Flamenco Sketches on Kind Of Blue, the album Sketches of Spain, and much of the fusion music of the late sixties and early seventies) and, of course, John McLaughlin. That the two share a history is a common notion, as attested in Flamenco, one of the few histories of the music available in English, edited by Claus Schreiner. Anoushka Shankar now brings the two traditions together explicitly in this excellent project.

The collection begins somewhat unpromisingly, with Inside Me feeling a little soft boiled, as does the third piece, Krishna. In between, however, we have a taste of things to come, with the exuberant Bulería Con Ricardo, the sitar and Pedro Miño's piano seeming to goad each other to go faster. Track four, Si No Puedo Verla is an adaptation of a medieval Farsi poem featuring the anguished grito of Duquende, some fine guitar from producer Javier Limón, and the piece also introduces Kenji Ota on tanpura.

Dancing In Madness features some driving palmas (flamenco clapping) in amongst the sitar, and an excellent passage of call and response between sitar and percussion.

Boy Meets Girl is co-written by Pepe Habichuela, who plays characteristically virtuoso guitar. Habichuela is a member of a flamenco dynasty and has collaborated with numerous others, from flamenco greats such as Enrique Morente to jazz bassist Dave Holland (Hands).

If you enjoy either Indian classical music or flamenco this is a dream listen. The mix and combinations sound both original and quirky. Some of the tracks had me attempting some flamenco steps and reminded me of trips to India.

My yoga teacher was talking about this and I decided to get it. I was not disappointed. It is a fantastic mixture of Indian and western music by Ravi Shankar's internationally reknowned daughter Anoushka.

A great album of splendid singing. I loved it and listened to it a lot when I first bought it, and go back to it still now and again.

Would never have believed that the similarities between Indian and Flamenco music could have been so clearly demonstrated on one CD.
