ShEnkar + electronica

Few days ago, I was sent a piece called "open the door". I was told that I am great fan of the artist and I had to guess his/her name. I took a couple of days but still couldn't identify him/her. There was a tinge of tamilian accent along with american. I could pin point on the genre, being "techno/electronica".
After much effort, I finally was told that it was the violin maestro L Shankar's new album. You can check out his "new" but no so new music here on my space -
I was truly amazed and got a kick out of listening to his "Misery" track.
