Bishi’s new album Albion Voice explores themes of Britain ancient and modern, the rich tapestry of East London's folklore, social politics and cultural mix providing a vivid backdrop to the writing.

The title track will be released as a single on St Georges Day and features, (Film composer) John Williams’ string players. Recorded in LA and London it’s theme is the search for identity in a multicultural world.

Diverse influences such as Bulgarian throat singing, prog rock and medieval folk come together in an eclectic yet coherent work of style and grandeur. 
The words of Chaucer, Milton and Elizabeth Fry track the development of English from a medieval ‘mongrel tongue’ to the modern language of today.

Harp, Sitar, Bowed Saw, Lute and ‘Mr. Tickle’ – the cabinet pipe organ from Worthing – are just some of the instrumental voices that can be heard throughout the record.

One of the highlights of the album is ‘Dia Ti Maria’, an 8min choral work – the debut performance grabbed the front page of the New York Times who announced Bishi as the 'New British Diva'. A limited release received wide critical acclaim and the piece will be re-released later in the year featuring The Kronos Quartet.

The Kronos Quartet also play on ‘Gram Chara’ a duet with Susmitsa Bhattacharya –  Bishi’s Mum! - a highly respected Indian Classical singer. Another epic track - ‘Look the other way’ - was co-written with Tony Benn MP.

The album artwork is based upon commemorative ceramics – Bishi appears as The Queen and Britannia with elements of Indian symbolism.

Performance and promotion opportunities are already coming in; a Royal command performance has even been requested for the Jubilee!

Bishi always generates a good amount of press and media, this album has potential to cause quite a stir in London and the UK during this Olympic and Jubilee year.
