Tracks on Monsoonās album (post-humously released in 1983) broadened its Asian fusion/Indipop remit to include instruments from around the world - gamelans, hurdy gurdy, celeste, bagpipes, mandolins and shawm.

While Monsoon were recording their album at Rockfield studios (Wales), Robert Plant arrived in his American convertible and Īpopped in for a chatā, but Sheila mistook him for the piano tuner and ignored him! (In her defence she was not wearing her contact lenses at the time!)

In the early eighties most people didnāt know what a sitar looked like, had to be told how long a sari was (6 yards), and so on. Because of this Sheila found herself being put in the role of an unofficial cultural ambassador.

After Monsoon disbanded in November 1982 (following disputes with their record company) Sheila pursued an equally pioneering solo career. Sheās released 10 albums so far - but no singles.

Although Sheila continues to live in England, the majority of her 3/4 million album sales have been in North America.
