"Life" by Dr. Jyotsna Srikanth (Classical artist from London)

"Life" by Dr. Jyotsna Srikanth features some wonderful violin work courtesy of Dr. Srikanth. It is largely based around Carnatic music (one of the two forms of Indian classical music). This particular style is typically written to be sung, but violin acts as the voice in these pieces. It's quite moving and very driven by emotion. Highlights of the album include "Memories," which features subtle, but memorable violin work. "Alone With Mother Nature" is a nice Jazz/Indian fusion with great violin and piano work. "Bowling the Violin" is an interesting up-tempo "almost" rock song with some tricky violin "solos". This is a relaxing, curious and adventurous album by an accomplished musician. If you like Jazz, anything fused with Jazz and beautiful violin, you will like this album.
