My sitar gently weeps...Anoushka Shankar & Norah Jones

It's a shame that more people haven't heard the amazing talent of Ravi Shankar's other daughter. The one that carries the tradition of Ravi's sublime sitar skill. Sure, everybody's heard Norah Jones, but Anoushka Shankar is no joke. I suppose it's fitting, and maybe a bit overdue, that Anoushka and Norah collaborate. Which is exatly what has happened on Anoushka's latest, Traces of You (due out in October), which features Norah on a pair of tunes that are quite beautiful. The title track is what I played at 10am today; a sound that definitely leaves it's mark, quite like the shadow of a kiss...
