Anoushka Shankar is an artist with deep roots in multiple traditions.
A sitar player, writer, arranger, and composer, her work recently opened a fresh chapter, signing to esteemed imprint Mercury KX.
New single 'Bright Eyes' / 'In This Mouth' is the first document to emerge from this relationship, and it's a vivid return.
'Bright Eyes' finds Anoushka Shankar working alongside Alev Lenz, a uniquely balanced partnership, one that conjures renewed intimacy from both parties.
"It has been incredibly nurturing getting to work with Alev. This was a truly ego-free collaboration involving friendship, shared life experiences, and creative sessions squeezed in between school runs over many cups of tea."
"Alev is a gorgeous singer with an unusual voice, plus she’s a very encouraging co-writer and co-producer."
We're able to share the full video and it's an exquisite piece of work, centred on Anoushka and her potent approach to artistry.
Shot in stylish black and white, it's a gorgeous watch, a sign that there's so much more to come from this controlled composer.
Tune in now.
Anoushak Shankar will close the year with three sold out performances at London’s Southbank Centre on December 3rd - 5th.
