she has one of the most beautiful and talented voices i ever heard... anybody heard of this beautiful Indian singer?

have no all albums of her, but i think she put all her talent in "Weaving My Ancestors Voices", an amazing/perfect example of the vocal percussion album

Sheila Chandra -- her 3 albums on Real World are all vocal only, all are great, and are sampled heavily, everyone from Hallucinogen to Ott to Space Cat & Elysium, who really should pay her some royalties for the long vocal they took on "Liquid Dub Connection"! "Quiet" and "Nada Brahma" from her Indipop days in the 80s are also quite good, Indi-ambi with very spacious and chilled intsrumentation on sitar, bells, piano, swarmandel and such backing her. "Roots and Wings" is her bridge album, between the Indipop sound and the Real World approach. She had a #1 hit in the UK with "Ever So Lonely" with the band Monsoon when she was 16 -- back around 1983?-- and then said f*** it to the mainstream and totally went off deep into her own sound explorations. (This track got a sh***y commercial trance rmx by Jakatta 2 years back.) IMO, Sheila is one of the most avant-garde figures in Indian music of the 20th century, right up there with Ravi Shankar, Zakir, et al., but she's almost totally unrecognized in India. She blew her voice out a few years back, sad to say, which is why there haven't been any new recordings for a while. Here's hoping she's on the mend...
