Amazing voice and musical ideas!
This is a fabulous CD! I am so impressed by this artist's nuanced vocals and beautiful tonal quality which are really strkingly beautiful. Ingenious, also, to combine the Indian music art form she has mastered with the different cultural stylings of English lyrics and western instrumentation. I'm so glad I came upon this after a friend told me about it. Really wonderful.
