Album Name: Peace in Progress
Singer: Manisha Shahane
Format: CD
Produced by: Notable Productions (notable.com)
Review by: Diana Rohini LaVigne, Indian Life & Style Magazine

Shahane uses her brilliant musical talent to bridge the gaps in understanding between people, lands and cultures.  She mixes in striking lyrics, in both English and some in her homeland  tongue Marathi, to create a peaceful sound that delivers a glimmer of hope for so many conflicts humanity sees in both daily life and in areas of the world that live with bigger overlying conflicts.Her capabilities go beyond her strong vocals and extend to instruments such as guitar and piano. Her piano playing sets the tone in many songs for relaxation and for addressing a situation at hand in other songs.Being a musical journey with a wide variety of selections, Shyam Rao-chi Mulgee (The Daughter of Shyam Rao) and Willows clearly stick out as the top of the pack. Each song has the perfect introduction to the music, an exceptional full bodied sound to the song and a grand use of space between the notes. Simplistically amazing! Manish Shahane is a multi-talented woman who is true to her musical side. By making music, she leads others into her land of hope for the future and her realization of the hardships of life. Her vocals make the words jump to life and the musicians blend together to support a marvelous voyage into peace in progress. We are eagerly awaiting her next release which promises to take the singer even higher in terms of musical talent and notoriety. She is absolutely someone to watch on the music scene.
