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

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."
