Susheela Raman - Salt Rain (2005) Retail CD
If the Beatles' "Norwegian Wood" is one of the classic examples of raga rock (emphasis on rock), fusing the ancient Indian modal pattern of raga with western rock & roll, Susheela Raman's remarkable debut Salt Rain could well be described as raga blues, (emphasis on raga). Trained to sing classical Indian music from childhood, the Londoner by birth began experimenting with the vocal style of American blues in adolescence, finding in her early 20s a richly exotic multi-textured sound. African rhythms, Asian-chordal dissonance and a deep womanly voice make for an intoxicating listening experiencemore…. Rather than run together as an ineffective mishmash of multicultural styles, Raman and her crew of musicians with origins in Romania, Greece, Spain and Kenya offer a sound like a masala-Gypsy-klezmer band with one foot in the delta. Familiar as the soaring voice of Joi, Raman is an intensely exciting new voice not in just world music, but in music as a whole. Salt Rain is both bountiful and devastatingly beautiful. --Paige La Grone
