Shaikh your booty with your sweetheart

Adham Shaikh will bring global music tapestries to the Waverley Feb. 14

From folk and jazz festivals to premier electronic festivals and clubs

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.

Shaikh has shared the stage with such diverse artists as Shpongle, Ott Bluetech, Michael Franti, Ganga Giri, Mad Professor, Gaudi, Tipper, Beats Antique, Nickodemus, Fungineers, Delhi2Dublin, David Starfire, Random Rab and Kalya Scintilla.

2012 saw him share his creations at the great electronic music festivals Symbiosis, Beloved, LIB, Shambhala, and BassCoast. Adham has also performed internationally at festivals in Ecuador (WaterWomen), France (Hadra), U.K. (Waveform), Portugal (Boom) Japan (Dakini) and New Zealand (Luminate). 2013 had Adham performing in New Zealand, Costa Rica, and the U.S.

Cumberland Village Works supports the Cumberland Forest and its efforts to purchase three new parcels of land by 2016 before they are logged. Monthly donors will be welcome to attend this Feb. 14 show as well as new signups the night of the show.
