World Music Introduction to Dr. Jyotsna Srikanth

Jyotsna Srikanth – Fusion Dreams

Jyotsna Srikanth – Fusion Dreams (Times Music, 2013)

This is an interesting world music debut by Dr. Jyotsna Srikanth. An accomplished violinist with a number of album releases and movie soundtrack performances, Jyotsna plays violin in eight different styles on this CD.

The London-based doctor showcases her musical skills with tracks in Irish, Arabic, Indian, African and Western themes.

She is accompanied by Praveen Rao on keyboards, Keith Peters on bass and N.S. Prasad on mandolin. Fans of violin would like this album, though purists may find it hard to pin it down to a single niche.
