Sheila Chandra

Weaving My Ancestors' Voices: CD.


Release Date: 16 June, 2023

This pioneering Asian singer explores the territories of her spiritual ancestors. An intensely beautiful album celebrating the first and ultimate instrument – the voice.

These re-issues provide a chance for listeners to (re)discover the work of Shelia Chandra, one of the most original and trailblazing artists of her generation.

Sheila Chandra’s 1992 debut album for Real World, Weaving My Ancestors’ Voices begins a trilogy that cements her as one of the most accomplished musicians of her generation. Chandra finds the common ground between vocal traditions, to embody the timelessness of the human voice. With this one ubiquitous instrument, she proves to us both the universality of its capacity to express human emotion and the uniqueness of her personal vision. Her self-expression has the capacity to move listeners as much now, and long into the future, just as radically as it did upon its first release.  

Includes a reinterpretation of Chandra’s first hit and the seed of her boundary-breaking career, 'Ever So Lonely.'
