From mossy mountain forests on the west coast of Canada, global electronics producer, film composer and sound designer Adham Shaikh 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 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.
See for yourself on Valentine’s Day at the Waverley Hotel in Cumberland.
