The musicians we're featuring in our Global Hit today have a few things in common.
Anoushka Shankar and Karsh Kale were both born in England. They both moved to the United States. And they both grew up listening to sitar master Ravi Shankar. He happens to be Anoushka's father.
Now the three of them play together on a new album called "Breathing Under Water." Karsh Kale is a tabla player and music producer. Anoushka Shankar -- like her father Ravi -- is a sitar player.
You can hear father and daughter taking turns to play the instrument on this track.
MULLINS: When a lot of Americans think of Indian instruments and the sitar many think of George Harrison and your dad. How much were you influenced by that collaboration?
SHANKAR: Well, it was a such a pivotal point in my father's life. Growing up I heard so much about it. But, he had a hard time with it because he was thrust into the limelight. I think it put my priorities straight with someone who's had that kind of success. I mean what's really impressive about him is his musicianship, not the type of fame he's had in his life.
KALE: I started go back to the fusion of Indian music with music around the world and of course found myself back to the days of Ravi Shankar. So many different musicians in jazz, rock, and fushion were influenced by him.
MULLINS: Anoushka, both you and your half sister Norah Jones have taken different musical paths. Did it take a while for you two to get together?
SHANKAR: Professionally, not privately. We speak very different languages, musically, and this is where Karsh helped us to communicate, which was great.
