about

Panchpuran is a Hindi expression that literally means "five spices". In the song it is used to mean many different things all mixed together, and I think that this describes the CD perfectly. it is also a good description of my family: my mum's family are Anglo-Indian and came to England in 1951, and my dad was born and bred in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. The title track describes, through my Aunty's eyes, the trials of adjusting to life in a country which is not your homeland.

When I started planning this CD, I aimed to record a wide variety of songs and styles, all with their roots in the song tradition of the British Isles. Some of these have very sparse and traditional arrangements, others take their inspiration from the many types of music I have been involved with and inspired by, including jazz, contemporary classical music, the colliery bands of Northern England, and accappella singing in its many forms. Carole King's "Goin' Back" is also included for its timeless sentiment.

Hope you like it.
