British Tamil musician Susheela Raman today released her new song ‘Sharabi’ (Alcoholic), taken from her forthcoming album “Queen Between.”
Built on her natural songwriting talents and drawing on sufi and hindu song traditions acquired during her travels in India and Pakistan, the English singer of Indian Tamil origin Susheela Raman’s new album is both highly energetic and physical yet meditative, often approaching a state of ecstatic trance. Acoustic and recorded as live Queen Between reveals an organic, open almost psychedelic style.
In addition to her London-based long-time producer / guitarist Sam Mills, Susheela is joined by two Rajasthani musicians for this project. Also by renowned guests the French cellist Vincent Segal and Pakistani qawwali singers Rizwan Muazzam.
