ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The new album from Nova Scotia songwriter Sahara Jane, co-produced with multi-instrumentalist Ken Shorley, navigates between many different worlds, emotional time zones, and sonic landscapes.

It is a journey which encompasses separation and unity, love and yearning, acoustic and electronic, past and present, East and West.

Sahara describes the sound, and the intention behind it, as genre fluid. Downtempo beats, soulful melodies and hints of jazz sit comfortably alongside Indian raga and Persian poetry.

Growing up as a person of mixed Canadian and Afghan heritage, Sahara is familiar with living between worlds. For her, this album is a chance to embrace her musical and cultural backgrounds, and these new songs reflect her empathy and curiosity – open to mystery and new perspectives, never judging, always curious.

Sahara Jane is a versatile musician who has graced stages from Beijing to Bombay to the islands of British Columbia, Sahara Jane is a natural performer with an onstage presence which audiences find both disarming and spellbinding.

Sahara’s musical world has always had many sides. Her mixed cultural background can be heard in her songwriting as she easily navigates between the direct punch of a love song, and the intricate sonic wizardry of South Asian raga.

Starting as a teenager, she hit the road with her sister Kamila, touring around folk clubs and festivals across Canada. In recent years, Sahara has been cultivating a sound that includes her South Asian roots. Along with guitar, she plays the sarangi, a haunting string instrument that was once popular in India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, but now is played by few. Her sound blends East and West with old and new, as her partner Ken Shorley adds world percussion and electronic layers to her compositions.

Her solo recordings include the lovestruck country-toned Lonesome Sky (2012) and the world-fusion album, Between Worlds (2019).

Stunning Sounds
This Canadian singer-songwriter is blending sounds and influences in ways that are fresh and so listenable. There's a haunting quality to these melodies and arrangements... at times even reminiscent of Portishead. The deep sound of the Indian bowed instrument (sarangi) is a feature on many of these tracks, while others take a more traditional "folk" approach, with acoustic guitar sitting up front. The percussive and electronic enhancements are subtle and effective. Highly recommended!
