Description

Sheema Mukherjee wields the sitar deftly, with a certainty and coolness borne from a lifetime of honing her craft. Years of studying alongside great Masters, including her esteemed uncle Pandit Nikhil Banerjee, and a childhood split between India and England informed her eclectic and far-reaching musical influences.

It is these that are responsible for the rich tapestry of Eastern and Western sounds woven throughout this record.

This selection from Sheema's catalogue celebrates the versatility of the sitar as her expert hands guide us through moods, locations and genres.
From driving rock to French pop, from traditional Indian ragas to British seaside outings, to the seductive Sikkim Girls onto wistful remembrances and more. Sheema will make you hear the sitar as it is meant to be heard and take you on an intoxicating, transcendent aural journey.

Each album has been produced on high quality 180g Vinyl and also includes USB Key with 24 bit audio and Street Spirit Official Video.

Press Quotes

"A charming, altogether singular creation."

The Guardian (4*)

"Mukherjee's playing takes a well-deserved centre stage, and her songwriting mixes childhood memories with everything from classical ragas to ska."

Financial Times (4*)
