Anoushka Shankar

When At the young age of 21, Anoushka Shankar has shown herself to be a unique artist with tremendous talent and understanding of the great musical tradition of India. Anoushka is the only artist in the world to be trained completely by her father and legendary sitar virtuoso and composer, Ravi Shankar. At age 13 she made her performing debut in New Delhi, India, and began assisting her father at all his concerts worldwide. That same year, Anoushka entered the recording studio for the first time to play on her father’s recording, In Celebration. Two years later she helped as conductor with her father and George Harrison on the 1997 Angel release, Chants of India.

EASY

Its only love

Its only love
You know
How it feels
Feeling is easy
I know

When I was young
When I was young
You Know
It was real
My Heart was open

Now I Know
I Know

I Know Better

Here is another video with Anoushka, Sting & Karsh Kale (Lyrics)

SEA DREAMER

Same tide that drew me closer
Pushed me far away
I held the hand that lit the dark night
Nothing I could say
I was on the outside
I was waiting for a sign
I set a course for a hidden island
That lay beyond the deceiving silence
I was on the dark side
I was sailing towards the light
I made my way through a sea of silence
A pirate’s life for a worthless diamond

I try and listen to the music when the ocean breathes
Wish that I could build a bridge across the sea
And the secrets of the moonlight would carry me
To where the sun meets the water and the sky breaks free
That’s where I’ll be

Same sign that drew me closer,
Jealous howling wind
Memory of a safer shoreline
never found again
I was on the outside
I was waiting for the light
I fought my way through a sea of violence
But you never heard me scream in silence
I was on the dark side
I was sailing through the night
Playing cards at the devil’s table
I lost my hand to a handless… ???

Every time I hear the music where the ocean breathes
Made me wish that I could build a bridge across the seas
And the secrets of the moonlight would carry me
To where the sun meets the water and the sky breaks free

I was on the outside
I was waiting for a sign
I set a course for a hidden island
That lay beyond the deceiving silence

Every time I hear the music where the ocean breathes
Made me wish that I could build a bridge across the seas
And the secrets of the moonlight would carry me
To where the sun meets the water and the sky breaks free

I’ll be on the outside
Far beyond the rising tide
You’ll be searching far and wide
But you’re lost in all the…???
When you sail to find me
Let the wind remind thee
A shipwrecked sailor that was saved by a maiden
Was sent out to sea
That’s where I’ll be
A million, million miles away
A sea dreamer ‘til my dying day.
