Head-Fi Users Get 25% Off Periphery from Priya Darshini on Chesky.com with code PRIYAHF
Offer expires 5/31/2020

"The album was recorded live on an omnidirectional microphone, which perhaps has resulted in the surreal finesse"
- Rolling Stone India
"Priya Darshini's album, Periphery, stands out as a beacon of hope for cultural unanimity." - Elle India


Priya Darshini's Periphery is elegant, tranquil, intricately layered, timeless and virtuosic. The album is a musical mix of styles, genres, and cultures featuring world-renowned cellist Dave Eggar, virtuoso hammered dulcimer player Max ZT, famed percussionist and environmentalist Chuck Palmer, and Living Colour drummer Will Calhoun. Blending elements of traditional Indian music and improvisation with American folk and pop music, the result is an alluring treat for the senses and a World music album for the ages.

Periphery explores the various connotations of what ‘home’ means to Priya Darshini, as she introspects on her cultural identity as a South Indian growing up in Mumbai and transplanted to New York City. In the backdrop of the current anti-immigrant rhetoric, this album is a shining example of the beauty of cross-cultural collaboration. The diverse influences on the album reflect her journey and the varied musical influences that Darshini has absorbed along the way, that have now become a part of her very distinct musical identity.

Taking her roots from Indian Classical music, Priya’s knowledge of music from all over the world has resulted in a fresh, imaginative and fascinating new sound. She displays an exciting combination of range, technique, unconventional compositions, a feminist perspective and a prodigious voice that truly sets her apart from other vocalists. Priya has the ability to both intrigue and captivate any audience. Priya has collaborated with a wide range of artists from Pearl Jam; Grammy award winners Roy “Futureman” Wooten; Jeff Coffin , Philip Lassiter; virtuoso ukulele player Jake Shimabukuro and many more.

The album was recorded in stunning high definition fashion using a new recording methodology which captures crystal clear vocal performance and the immaculate acoustics of the church in which the album was recorded. This new recording style will leave you feeling like the band is right in front of you while still creating a timeless presence that will have you coming back for years to come.

Just purchased this on HD Tracks. Nothing wrong with Chesky, but I am already setup on HD Tracks.
