Ananda Sankar (1942 – 1999)

Son of Uday and Amala Shankar, Ananda, in the words of a critic, “was an original musician of the word before the term world music was invented.” Trained in Indian classical music and subsequently exposed to western trends, he pioneered a distinctive sound : vibrant new age music, capable of breaking barriers between races, cultures and generations.

Not confined by the fetters of the archaic and the conventional, decades ahead of its time when first unleashed in the world of music, Ananda’s creative efforts retain their originality and appeal even today. He has given the world a repertoire of music heard regularly over the radio, on television, at plays, on airlines, at fashion shows and in films and of course during performances by the Centre of Performing Arts founded by him.

Universal Appeal

This is a fascinating collaboration between Ananda Shankar and Mads Arp. Their publishing company Notting Hill Music handed over never released recordings of the late Ananda Shankar to Mads Arp of Miro and Remote and gave him free range to create.

The outcome is 13 fantastic sounding tracks that keep the original feel and intensity. The original recordings of Ananda are respected with the addition now of Arp's reknown chill out vibe.

The album 'Universal Appeal' can be described as Ibiza meets India : indian chillout.
