East meets West in SHAKTI

Sharing is Caring!

Shakti in Hindi / Sanskrit means Power and This magnum opus is indeed full of the magical musical powers. Our main arm RainbowDiaries is proud to be a Social Media partner of this event and we are so looking forward to immerse in music. Shakti plays on 16th January 2020 8 pm onwards at The Star Theatre and Tickets are available on SISTIC.

Formed in 1973 by guitarist John McLaughlin and tabla maestro Zakir Hussain , SHAKTI pioneered a groundbreaking East meets West collaboration and played a pivotal role in establishing Fusion music. The violinist L.Shankar and ghatam player T.H. Vikku Vinayakram were part of the original band which toured several years in its original formation around the world to highly acclaimed praise.

For professional reasons, the group disbanded in 1978 and for two decades each of the musicians followed their own highly successful careers and only in the late 90’s was the band reformed with Shankar Mahadevan on vocals, U.Srinivas on mandolin and Selvaganesh Vinayakram replacing his father Vikku. Another creative dimension was brought to the band which was already considered one of the best world music groups.

After the tragic loss in 2014 of Mandolin U. Srinivas, the group ceased to perform. However in early 2019 the group once again reformed with violinist Ganesh Rajagopalan for a performance in India. For the musicians this event served as a renaissance of Shakti. With the new formation, it was decided to continue to perform together for special events and bring the magic of Shakti once again to the public.

Majestic star theatre is all ready to welcome SHAKTI on 16 th January 2020.
