NARI

by Gingger Shankar & The Shanghai Restoration Project

Nari's soundtrack consists of 13 songs centered around unreleased recordings of Viji Shankar from 1972 set to an entrancing blend of hip-hop, high energy solos and electronica. Gingger Shankar, Dave Liang, and a handful of talented Indian and Western musicians accompany Viji's voice with a variety of sounds including vocals, double violin, keyboards, konnakol, santoor, Indian percussion, guitars, mandolin, and the theremin. Nari purposely draws influences from different genres to reflect both the cross-cultural spirit of the original Shankar Family & Friends recordings and the universality of the struggles Lakshmi and Viji had to face.
