ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As a kid, Shashi had a big mouth when it came to singing (and still does). She didn't care how flat she sounded or if she was singing the right words. She just wanted to sing. This brought some over-the-bifocals looks from her musical directors but, of course, this failed to subdue her enthusiasm. She just kept bellowing like a moose in heat, every chance she got.

She finally realized that not everyone was enthralled with her unconstrained artistic expression, especially since she was an alto. By the grace of the gods, she had an epiphanic moment and realized that in order to avoid damaging any innocent ear drums, she'd better chill out and reflect on the good of the universe.

Many years later, thru courageous soul searching within the inner sanctums of her larynx, she slowly crawled out of her vow of silence and opened her mouth to sing again, with wobbly self-confidence. Luckily (for her and the rest of the planet) she found a voice she could live with, without endangering any species or causing life-threatening avalanches. Since then, we are happy to report, she has received a total of zero glares from professional musicians, except her daughter. But that's another story - however, it should be noted that the underlying glare-causing experiences have been related to non-musical origins. If you have children, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

Shashi has done numerous musical stage productions. Concerts and radio shows have also graced her path. She's been writing original music for about 20 years, accompanying herself on guitar or piano.

"Sound of a face" is her debut album. Her folkish, earthy style resonates with her passionate love for Mother Earth. Acoustically accompanying herself on guitar, drums and percussion, she also bribed several other amazing (and gullible) musicians to play along. Her music will make you smile.

moving music
This is a fabulous album, from the rambunctious Mr Dragonfly to the loving of the love songs. Nice range, great voice, wonderful music.

Savannah

Awesome
Shashi's music is wonderful and inspiring. If anyone would want to compare her 'famous' musical artist they would have to compare her to Sarah McLachlan. The soaring voice always leaves you wondering as to what comes next.The cd is awesome!

Sharon

Your earth rhythms and gentle melodies add a measure of peace to my day.
I love your music! I listen to your CD every morning when I'm eating breakfast. Your music's earth rhythms and gentle melodies help take the edge off city living, and add a measure of peace to my day. What a sweet talent and expression you have! Your songs are very inspiring and meditative.

Beautiful sight breeds beautiful sound
Shashi's Light truly does come through her voice and songwriting on Sound of a Face. It is relaxing yet exhilarating, timely and timeless. She is not only the face of the Mesa (as depicted in the beautiful CD cover art), but the sound of the still Mesa as well.

This album is a refreshing collection of melodies. I find myself tapping my foot and singing along with Mr. Dragonfly. I also am moved by the power and emotion in her voice. Happy as well as reflective. Nice on the ears! Looking forward to more!
