This record in particular felt unique in transporting me to another dimension of the genre and Rasheda Shashamane the door to many more female folk musicians that I was not yet aware of. Anything that teeters too far into whimsical territory makes me tune out for being saccharine, whilst anything jaunty or overly orchestrated loses me for feeling at best impersonal, at worst theatrical.
