Of course she plays brilliantly on her chosen instrument sitar, but also shows her skills as keyboardplayer. Accompanied by a cast of very talented musicians, amongst them the accomplished pianist Pedro miño and the slideguitarmaestro Vishwa Mohan Bhatt.
This beautiful and complex work should clearly establish Anoushka as a major force in contempoarry music, regardless of genre.
Anoushka Shankar undoubtedly has inherited the same rare and special talent from her father. Long may she reign. Listen and be enlightened, or live in the dark for the rest of your lives - the choice is yours.

All of the songs on here are exemplary in every way. The composition and the performances are better than a lot of modern contemporary artists, who could learn a thing or two about arrangement, performance, and composition from this.
As the main review says, the whole CD feels like each piece picks a specific part of the day, starting with the waking up to pray (Prayer In Passing), then there's the sunrise (Red Sun), and from then carries on to the moon's coming out (Voice Of The Moon), and finally going to sleep after a prayer to the lord (Ancient Love - at least that's my take on it).
A beautiful conceptual piece that fits nicely with traditional Indian music (such as Rashid Khan, etc) and any contemporary music. Just a shame that I can't find the remix version on Amazon, which would be fantastic.
The use of the piano was a mild surprise, but in Pedro Ricardo Mi'o's hands it fits nicely in her musical world. And yes, her music is both ethereal and harmonically dense, with those dazzling internal rhythms that are transmitted back and forth between the sitarist and the her musical group. And voices chanting wonderfully. And she's a great composer. My favorite 'Pieces D'Resistance' are: the peace of "Prayer in Passing" (with the amazing 'mohan veena' instrument of Grammy winner Vishwa Mohan Bhatt), the haunting chants on "Red Sun", "Naked" (Anoushka's solo "show stopper" on multitracked sitar and piano without any other personnel support: "Naked", indeed), and "Ancient Love" (again with the slide wizardry of Vishwa Mohan Bhatt). But "Voice of the Moon" is a Tour De Force Par Excellence with it's mesmerizing multiple tempos and moods surging towards a wild climax. Wonderful music, Anoushka!! Five Big Stars !!!!
(Note: Truth be told, the AMAZING Anoushka Shankar is the half-sister of the AMAZING multiple Grammy-winning jazz/pop singer, Norah Jones. And what a double blessing to the music world are these two fantastic women. It is really a great pleasure to add both daughter's individual CDs alongside the father's in my music collection. Peace!)
