Note From Rachel Portman “leaves and trees” took as its starting point the sense of being immersed within the upper branches of a beech tree in late spring. The leaves are at their freshest and greenest, and the light is refracted through them as they move in the breeze. The music is an expression of that feeling. It's impossible to say what happens when trying to evoke my response to those leaves and trees as no thinking can happen in order to allow music to write itself.

Anoushka Shankar has a new song out today! Listen below:Dear friends, I’m so happy to share a new song with you, OUT TODAY! mkx.lnk.to/ThoseWordsFP
‘Those Words’ features the amazing women Ayanna Witter-Johnson and Shilpa Rao on cello and vocals respectively. I’m very attached to this sweet, evocative song and hope you like it too.
I’m so grateful to each of the women who helped to birth it: along with Ayanna and Shilpa were my co-producer Alev Lenz, lyricist Shirin Anandita, engineer Izziiee Jewell, mastering engineer Heba Kadry and the beautiful painter Azeema Nur, who once again has created such beautiful art work for my song.. I didn’t quite manage an all female cast :) and need to thank my dear Matt Robertson for his stellar mixing as always!
