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).

Anoushka captures the magic of the Sitar just like her father. You enter the musical atmosphere of the sitar and you imagine Anoushka playing as the world drifts past and time has no significance.
Beautifully played and produced.

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.

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.

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.

This CD is a true feast for both the ears and the soul. A joyful and serene exploration of the bonds between the classical Indian music forms and the flamenco. Thereby portraing the legacy of the gypsies which originally came from Rajastan bringing the rhythms and melodies of India to Europe. (A legacy also explored in the collaboration between Paco De Lucia and John McLaughlin)

Amazing how Anoushka Shankar's musical universe has grown from her debut with competent but tentative interpretations of her father's music. To highly succesful experiments with the fusion of the classical tradition and modern day electronica on Rise and Breathing Under Water. Constantly developing and expanding both her compositoric and improvisational skills.

This album is beautifully diverse and innovative. Among the highlights - though all tracks are exquisite - are the guitar/sitar duet "Boy Meets Girls" with Pepe Habichuela and the infectious titletrack.

Marvelous and essential for all lovers of world music, the beauty of the sitar and the spirit of musical adventure.

Anoushka is maturing VERY nicely now. One can imagine how difficult it could be, under the shadow of her famous sitar maestro father, Pandit Ravi Shankar.
This kind of 'fusion' album is a really good way to get people interested in sitar too.
GREAT!!!!
