Fable:Time is the debut studio album by British musician Shama Rahman, released on 16 June 2013.[1]

Composition[edit]

Recorded in 2011, Fable:Time features musicians from Bengal, Britain and around the world, it was recorded with support from Gabriel Prokofiev's Non-Classical studios and with production from Guildhall composer Christopher Bartholomew. There were also electronic/dubstep remixes from French dubstep producer Son of a Pitch. Her band also had accompaniment with live drawing, which was used in the album.[2]

The dramatic and storytelling album combines influences from everywhere Rahman has lived, visited, experienced and loved in – at least three continents. Some of her spoken word pieces are featured in this album and has led her to perform at the DSC Literary Festival and Hackney Word Festival.[2]

Release[edit]

The album was released on 16 June 2013. Each song on the album unveils a chapter in an overall story about how time affects us - its illusions, deceptions and myths. The album mimics the non-linearity of time and is on a circular track listing. From this, she has visualised one overall narrative by creating a series of eight videos which are all episodes in a series. The first episode "Reflections" received critical acclaim from Gilles Peterson.[3][4][5]
