Bringing together the passionate music of Spain with the vibrant sounds of the Indian tradition, Traveller traces the gypsies’ journey from their homeland in Rajasthan to finally settling in Spain. Anoushka Shankar and her specially selected group of all-star Indian and flamenco musicians re-forge the thousand-year-old link between Spanish and Indian music. Vocal and instrumental lines packed with emotion, driving rhythms and subtle musical colours will transport you on this amazing journey.

 

Anoushka Shankar is one of the world’s great sitar players and the only artist to be trained solely by her father, the unsurpassed Ravi Shankar. Following her acclaimed CDs Rise (nominated for a Grammy) and Breathing Under Water, this project carries forward to a new generation the sense of exciting and open-eared musical exploration that has marked both their careers.
