Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Shani Diluka, born in Monaco of Sri Lankan parents, studied piano in Paris and is considered one of the rising stars of Europe. Her clever and thought-provoking new release entitled Road 66 pays tribute directly to Jack Kerouac and indirectly to a uniquely American film genre, the road movie. As with all road trips, the destination is less important than how you get there. From Bill Evans to John Adams to Cole Porter, over 18 tracks featuring 14 composers, Diluka takes the listener on a musical and initiatory odyssey across the New World.
