Remember Shakti In India

Remember Shakti are heading to India this February for a 6-city exhibition of their classical world fusion, descended from the strains of jazz and Carnatic music.


And their version is as authentic as it gets, fronted as they are by world’s two original fusionistas; guitarist John McLaughlin and tabla maestro Zakir Hussain. This new set up is essentially a reincarnation of Shakti, the famously oriental jazz ensemble from the ‘70s, that McLaughlin and Zakir Hussain had also been a part of.

Remember Shakti’s onstage lineup now includes, apart from Zakir Hussain and John McLaughlin, U Srinivas on mandolin, ghatam exponent V Selvaganesh and singer Shankar Mahadevan, who’s been in the band since 2001.

Their schedule is –

February 5    at    Ganesh Kala Kreeda Manch, Pune

February 7    at    Shanmukhananda Auditorium, Mumbai

February 9    at    Palace Grounds, Bangalore

February 10  at    Lalit Palace Ground, Hyderabad

February 11  at    Music Akademy Hall, Chennai

February 12  at    King George School, Mumbai

Tickets are priced at Rs 750, Rs 1000, Rs 2000, Rs 3000 and Rs 5000 and are already on sale online at bookmyshow.com.
