FeelGOOD Fridays!!

A very special FeelGOOD Fridays, bringing in the master of world bass and fusion ADHAM SHAIKH of Shambhala fame, to our big city! Every time this guy touches down it's a sell out, so make sure to get a presale ticket and don't miss out on this very special event!!


His present 15-year history with music began by exploring synthesizers in the early 1980s. In the early 1990s, Shaikh found the electronic music scene full of innovative and explorative sounds. This environment created an opportunity for him to present his compositions to an audience already embracing electronic music. Shaikh furthered his electro acoustic composition at Queen's University and has continued making music resulting in his present diverse discography.

Shaikh's music is a blend of many different styles and techniques. It is a world groove blend of fusion, dub, world beat, tech house, ambient, and jazz. From growing up listening to Indian ragas and Western classical music, he developed an ear for a fusion of sounds from around the world. This musical blend of styles and traditions inspire his compositions. The 21st-century rituals of dance and chill-out have drawn Shaikh to explore the trance phenomenon that these different expressions of music create and allow.

Over the years, Shaikh has had the pleasure to work with many talented musicians playing musical instruments from India; Bali, Indonesia; Africa; Scandinavia; Turkey; the United States; and Canada. Shaikh was nominated for a 2006 Juno award in the category of World Music Album of the Year.
