Fresh of their NZ Festival of the Arts performance; Shades of Shakti‘s music combines intricate fast melodies, virtuosic rhythms of the tabla and percussion, and the hypnotic tones of the sarangi, a highly resonant, ancient bowed instrument of India.

This tour will feature India based Maestro, Sangeet Mishra, comes from a long line of sarangi masters from India’s holiest city, Varanasi. Considered a prodigy as a child, Sangeet has endeavoured in his career to revive ancient musical styles. An innovative musician, he has performed with leading artists in India and around the world, successfully employing a contemporary approach to the sarangi without compromising its traditional purity and essence.

Shades of Shakti is made of some of New Zealand’s finest musicians: Justin Firefly Clarke (guitar), Basant Madhur (tabla), Tristan Carter (violin), Thomas Friggens (percussion and drums).
