Björk au sujet de Talvin Singh
You once talked about part of what happened there, being the climax of your work with Talvin Singh. Was it the end too ?
We’re still talking about doing something. He’s always inviting me over to Bombay for six months to make an album. Maybe the time will come around some time. As far as all Talvin’s talent is concerned, I’ve always felt that we hit it off best as instrumentalists. Me on voice and him on tabla. I think the song ’One Day’ that we did on Unplugged demonstrates that. Of everything we did together, that was the least effort. So somehow it became specially memorable.

Talvin Singh à propos de Debut
Björk and Nellee wanted Indian rhythms and big, dreamy Bollywood strings, so they flew me out to Mumbai. I recorded on tape, for that vintage Bollywood feel, and when I brought them back, Nellee was at the airport to get them ! The trust between Nellee and Björk, there was a magic in that. Also, she was shedding her past, personally and musically. I remember thinking that very strongly.
