Adham Shaikh

Plan to Shaikh it up at the Waverley Saturday night

With special guest TAABU

Adham Shaikh comes from mossy mountain forests on the west coast of Canada.

He weaves global music tapestries that take listeners on sonic journeys transcending time and place. Adham’s sets can be described as ever-evolving blends of deep original global grooves, tribal rhythms, west coast bass, complex dub and lush downtempo atmospheres.

His performances range in numbers from a one-man show equipped with drum machines, iPads, and synths, all the way to his 10-piece Outworld Orkestra, amassed from a collection of the world’s finest fusionists, dancers, and visual artists performing his music live. Adham’s music traverses diverse landscapes and times, connecting the listener with a kaleidoscope of cultures.

He comes to the Waverley Hotel on Saturday, Feb. 14 with special guest TAABU, who is the protoplasmic embodiment of dance music, tribal culture and desire. TAABU is proving to be quite the mixer and music exploration adventurist. TAABU continues to take risks every show, never DJ’ing in the “Safe Zone”.

Tickets ($17 advance) available at Bop City, The Waverley Hotel or by phone 250-336-8322.
