En tant que fille du légendaire Ravi Shankar, Anoushka a eu le privilège d’apprendre à jouer du sitar avec le meilleur professeur possible. Participant aux tournées de son père à partir de 1994, la jeune artiste publie son premier album éponyme en 1998 et dévoile au monde entier la virtuosité qu’elle a acquis au fil de ses expériences. Interprétant avec brio quatre des compositions de son père, ainsi qu’une de ses propres créations, Anoushka met en lumière toute la beauté et les possibilités de l’instrument à 20 cordes et prouve que, malgré son jeune âge, elle fait déjà partie de la cours des grands. Un album essentiel pour découvrir les sonorités exotiques et fascinantes de l’instrument indien. © LG/Qobuz

Quelques mois seulement après le bien nommé Home paru durant l’été 2015 et sur lequel elle revenait au bercail de la musique classique indienne en magnifiant l’art du raga transmis par son illustre père, Anoushka Shankar retourne avec ce Land Of Gold à la source des subtiles fusions qu’elle affectionne tant. Un disque pour évoquer le traumatisme humanitaire des personnes déplacées fuyant les conflits et la pauvreté. Une thématique que la musicienne a voulu prendre à bras le corps… Une fois de plus, son mélange musical entre Inde et Occident fait des merveilles. Entourée d’invités de renom (le percussionniste Manu Delago, le contrebassiste de jazz Larry Grenadier, la rappeuse M.I.A. ou bien encore la comédienne Vanessa Redgrave), la fille du maître Ravi Shankar déroule ici, sitar en main, des mélodies d’une grande intensité poétique. © CM/Qobuz

For sitarist and composer Anoushka Shankar's second offering for Deutsche Grammophon, she stays closer to home musically than she did on 2011's widely celebrated Traveller. That said, she carries what she learned from studying flamenco with producer Javier Limon and integrates it fully into these proceedings. Producer Nitin Sawhney, a fine recording artist in his own right, is an integral part of Traces of You. He wrote one of these 13 cuts, co-authored five more, and arranged and played on several others. This is easily the most intimate and emotional offering in Shankar's catalog. Though the album was planned earlier and its basic ideas outlined by Shankar and Sawhney, the music is indelibly informed by a life-changing event, the death of her father, Ravi Shankar. Opener and first single "The Sun Won’t Set" is one of three tracks to feature the voice of half-sister Norah Jones, whose haunting, bluesy vocal is adorned only by Shankar's sitar, a classical guitar, and Ghatam (a percussion instrument). The title track evokes the loss and spirit of her father in an uplifting way. A sprightly, syncopated rhythm track undergirds Jones' drifting vocal as Shankar's sitar alternately drones and accents alongside a tabla, glockenspiel, and guitar. It is one of the set's standout tracks. "Indian Summer" is a piano and sitar duet where flamenco and Indian classical music sit side by side. Three tracks -- "Lasya," "In Jyotyi's Name," and "Chasing Shadows" -- are squarely inside the Indian classical tradition, while several others, including "River Pulse," "Monsoon," and "Metamorphosis," use it in a context framed by electronic rhythms and loops without breaking the overriding lineage thread. Closer "Unsaid" features Jones' melody, vocal, and piano accompanying Shankar's lyrics and sitar. A poignant pop ballad, Sawhney adds just enough of Ian Burdge's cello to deepen its emotional impact. Throughout Traces of You, Shankar allows her vulnerability as a human being -- even in the instrumentals -- to freely converse with her authority as a musician and composer. Sawhney is an empathic producer balancing the sides, allowing her wide-ranging and integrative musical ideas to take root and flower even as they express tenderness, sadness, grace, and gratitude. © Thom Jurek /TiVo

Breathing Under Water is a different animal altogether. Karsh Kale and Anoushka Shankar co-wrote eight of these 13 cuts together. Another, "Easy," was co-written with Norah Jones -- Shankar's half sister -- and sung by her. Father Ravi wrote a two-part tune with his daughter and appearshere as well. The other big name guest is Sting (it's a payback for Shankar playing on a few tracks of his in the past). Shankar (sitar, keyboards) and Kale (guitars, keyboards, live drums) wind Indian classical music, rock, electric atmospheres, and a load of loops and beats (break and otherwise) with a host of collaborators who include the great arranger and pianist Salim Merchant (who also conducts the Bombay Cinematic Orchestra Strings on a few pieces), Vishwa Mohan Bhatt on his mohan vina, vocalists Sunidhi Chauhan, Shankar Mahadevan, and Vishal Vaid, and chamber players on bansuri, sarangi, and other traditional instruments, and programmers of various stripes. What's striking is that while one can imagine how this might sound, because of other attempts at doing the same thing, the end product would frustrate those anticipations to a large degree. Certainly electronic music is deeply rooted here, but so is the sitar, so is rock, so is Western classical music -- sometimes all in the same tune. It's exotic, but it's a another thing too, which feels like, well, coming home. The Sting track ("Sea Dreamer") may have fared better without his breathy vocals intruding. That said, the piano and vocal performance by Jones on "Easy" is what sets it apart -- no matter what one thinks about her singing, she really stretched out here and makes it seem effortless -- and makes it an inseparable part of the fabric of the album. "A Perfect Rain," with Mahadevan singing, is a thoroughly modern track in every way, but his gorgeous traditional vocal adds real depth and dimension to the other aspects of the sounds created here. The blend of guitars, drums, sarangi, layered keyboards, loops, and live drums is gorgeous. Elsewhere, on the instrumentals such as "Little Glass Folk," Shankar's sitar work is sublime, tighter and more focused than on her other recordings. With orchestral percussion by Kale and Merchant conducting the strings in Western classical fashion, it's deeply moving, and even breathtaking in places as it emerges seemingly from the ether and travels from West to East as the two musics come together in something wonderfully cinematic and enchanting. The two-part "Oceanic," on which Ravi plays, is fantastic. It takes up a little over eight minutes, the first half with Ravi improvising over Merchant's string orchestra -- so moving and beautiful it's beyond all written language. The second part is a duet between the Shankars with accompaniment from Kale on tabla, Ajay Prassana on bansuri, and Pirashana Thevarajah on mindangam kanjira, with Merchant conducting the strings once more. The lyricism here is profound, spiritually moving (and not necessarily in a theistic sense of the term). The final cut, a brief interlude called "Reprise," is just Shankar on her sitar, Kale playing piano, and Merchant's wonderfully understated strings. As the record comes to whispering close, it begs an analysis as to why Breathing Under Water works so well. The answer is that Shankar came on far more aggressively here. Her discipline and sense of harmony and melody are very sophisticated, and she's always downplayed them on her own recordings. Kale, on the other hand, is not so heavy-handed in his writing, playing, or production work, perhaps because he is in the company of so many fine musicians, Merchant not least among them. This is lush and elegant music; it defies genres and pigeonholes. But it is also new, made from many old approaches as well as modern ones. Breathing Under Water is nothing less than delightfully -- and sometimes powerfully -- unique. © Thom Jurek /TiVo

Dans cet opus intitulé <i>Traveller</i>, premier album qu'Anoushka Shankar enregistre pour le label allemand Deutsche Grammophon, la plus jeune fille du maître indien Ravi Shankar mélange, confronte le flamenco à la musique classique indienne. Produit par Javier Limon, célèbre guitariste flamenco, rejoint par Buika, Pepe Habichuela ou Duquende, l'idée de re-création et renaissance infusent ce projet au travers de deux formes d’expression musicale toutes deux évoluées, de leurs origines anciennes à leur apogée moderne. © CM/Qobuz

Dans la famille Shankar, je demande une fois de plus la fille ! Anoushka Shankar, fille du maître Ravi qui la forma personnellement au sitar dès l’âge de neuf ans. Après des débuts en terrain classique, cette native de Londres a brillamment osé les expérimentations diverses (crossover comme aiment à les baptiser les départements marketing des maisons de disques…). Un mélange entre Inde et Occident qui propulse la belle en invité sur les albums de Sting, Nitin Sawhney ou bien encore Herbie Hancock… Mais cette fois, avec le bien nommé Home, la demi-sœur de Norah Jones revient au bercail de la musique classique indienne. Sans artifice, Anoushka Shankar magnifie l’art du raga transmis par son père tout au long d’un disque réellement habité. © CM/Qobuz
