Visions (ft. Lionel Loueke)

Kavita Shah, a singer and composer from New York, celebrates the release of her album "Visions". Co-produced by renowned African guitarist Lionel Loueke, Visions (available May 27 on Inner Circle Music) heralds the arrival of a strinkingly original, globally minded new voice. A self-portrait in mosaic form, Visions interweaves Shah's multicultural background with her wide-ranging musical influences, combining the Indian tablas and West African kora with a traditional jazz quintet.

Shah will be joined by co-producer Loueke, saxophonist Greg Osby, guitarist Michael Valeanu, pianist Guy Mintus, bassist Linda Oh, drummer Guilhem Flouzat, tabla player Stephen Cellucci, kora master Yacouba Sissoko, and percussionist Rogerio Boccato
