about

"Her fourth album, Bittersweet, has all the markings of a major breakthrough, bringing together a superlative cast and her consistently engaging, often enchanting body of songs. With the incomparable drummer Brian Blade, Cuban bass maestro Carlitos del Puerto, and Austrian guitarist (and album producer) Alex Machacek accompanying, Sumitra delivers a revelatory program in the mode of a confessional singer-songwriter, addressing the eternal themes of death, love, heartache and spiritual renewal."

Track Name: Bittersweet
BITTERSWEET © Sumitra Nanjundan 2018

How winter kills
We turn to greet the days
Of my birth
Of your death
Of our union
Of your last breath

How winter thrills us
As we move
From the darkness
Into the light
Into warmth
Into joy
Into
Silence


Bittersweet December dreams
Like to keep me company
Taking me by the hand
Hoping I may understand

Bittersweet
Memories
Welcome to December

Seated in a tidy row
Making peace at last
What was then and what is now
I can’t change the past

Bittersweet
Memories
These are my December
Dreams
