Adham Shaikh is a composer, record producer and sound designer living near Nelson, B.C…
His present 15-year history with music began by exploring synthesizers in the early 1980s, which ushered in a whole new frontier of musical experiments and explorations. In the early 1990s, Shaikh found the electronic music scene full of innovative and explorative sounds. This environment created an opportunity for him to present his compositions to an audience already embracing electronic music.
Shaikh furthered his electro acoustic composition at Queen’s University and has continued making music resulting in his present diverse catalog of sound releases.
Shaikh’s music is a blend of many different styles and techniques. It is a world groove blend of fusion, dub, world beat, tech house, ambient and jazz. From growing up listening to Indian ragas and classical western music, he developed an ear for a fusion of sounds from around the world. This musical blend of styles and traditions inspire his compositions. The 21st century rituals of dance and chill-out have drawn Shaikh to explore the trance phenomenon that these different expressions of music create and allow.
Over the years, Shaikh has had the pleasure to work with many talented musicians playing musical instruments from India, Bali, Africa, Scandinavia, Turkey, America and Canada.
