Shankar collaborated with many world-renowned Indian and flamenco musicians on this beautiful, ground-breaking musical journey including pianist Pedro Ricardo Miño on “Bulería Con Ricardo”, guitarist Pepe Habichuela on “Boy Meets Girl” and Concha Buika and Sandra Carrasco on vocals for the mesmerizing “Casi uno” and “Kanya” respectively.  Other highlights include “Dancing In Madness“which showcases the actual flamenco dancer Farruco’s feet furiously tapping in tune with percussion and the fast-paced title track “Traveller”.
