Throughout all of history, India has watered the root of every spiritual tradition and attracted mystics and seekers asking the question “Who am I?” India is about one such seeker returning to the land of her ancestral roots. The song is composed with a unique fusion of Western and Indian instrumentation and features the sitar maestro Ravi Chary, Debu Nayak on tabla, Preetinder Singh Dhinsa on taus, Bob Hatter on guitar, David Santos on bass, and Peter Young on drums from Nashville ,TN. This project was recorded in Mumbai, Nashville @ Ultra Audio Productions, Northern Virginia, and Ottawa and mixed and mastered by Nicolas Laget.
The music video showcases Shweta as she blissfully wanders in solitude and reminisces her journey in India. The video producer, Jibran Khan, blended in shots of various Indian attractions to present a seamless journey as the song progresses.
