Shambhu performs a new song, “Knowingness”, live at Pilgrimage Yoga in San Diego.
While Shambhu generated a tranquil new age vibe on his debut album four years ago, this time the guitarist opts for a thicker fusion sound on his sophomore effort.
This heavier jazz-rock approach is evidenced by the greater presence of electric guitar in addition to acoustic guitar, as well as more defined melodies and chord progressions.
The sound is fuller and richer, thanks especially to an abundance of horns. Shambhu also gets solid support from a stellar lineup of musicians: George Brooks on saxophone, Eugene Friesen on cello, Premik Russell Tubbs on wind instruments, Jeff Haynes on percussion, Charlie Bisharat on violin, Frank Martin on keyboards, Jeff Oster on flugelhorn, and Celso Alberti on drums.
His two releases so far show Shambhu to be a varied and diverse composer and, of course, a thoughtful, creative, and fluid guitarist.
We’re producing a bunch of images with inspiring expressions around “Dreaming of Now.” Hope you like them.
Shambhu and Friends perform “Waterfall” at the Global Heart Concert, Palo Alto CA – December 7 2013.
With a luminous troupe of master musicians, Shambhu weaves his spirit-freeing songs into the joyous tapestry of Dreaming of Now.
The album’s co-producer, Will Ackerman, pioneering founder and guitar genius of Windham Hill Records, describes it as “bold, assured composition and performance which unquestionably establishes Shambhu as not only a principal player in the New Age world, but also as a force to be reckoned with in a far broader spectrum of musical styles and genres.”

You are cordially invited to attend a very special evening of music featuring myself performing with the gifted composer and pianist Geoffrey Menin, in a benefit performance for the Fortunate Blessings Foundation and the Save the Children: Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund.
Geoffrey and I met in 1972, formed a fast friendship and spiritual connection and played countless parties for friends and family. This is the first time we are collaborating for a concert of original music, and our dedication of the evening to helping our sisters and brothers in Japan makes the concert even more meaningful.
Geoffrey has been writing and performing music in many genres for his entire life. Above all he plays from the heart and conveys a richness of spirit, wisdom and purpose that is rare. He has performed with musicians ranging from Buddy Miles, Stanley Jordan and Charlie Daniels to Paul Winter and Yo Yo Ma. This evening will feature the premiere of a new suite of original compositions dedicated to the well-being of the Japanese people.
I’ll be doing tunes from “Sacred Love” along with some new compositions I’m excited to share. Plus Geoffrey and I will collaborate on our respective music and all in the context of compassion for and oneness with the Japanese people who are rebuilding their lives, their families, their homes, and their dreams.
BUY TICKETS: Seating capacity is limited. Pay at the door tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. We expect this show to sell out quickly.
