“It was also special because it was recorded while I was expecting my younger son Mohan. This December tour will be Mohan’s first trip to India,” Anoushka said in a statement.

Talking about the album, the four-time Grammy nominee, said it will see her play classical ragas for the first time since her father passed away.

“I felt deeply connected to him during the entire process. It does feel like an offering. It felt like I was reconnecting with him through playing the music that I’ve learned from him,” she said.
