Shanta Noir’s music has been
inspired equally by a variety of traditional cultures as well as by styles from
the electronic charts.
Funky beats melt with the earthy riffs of African drums. Acoustic spaces from
the soundlab match with the pulse of the didgeridoo. An explosive sax solo
responds to a coarse Indian song and then again a bamboo flute cajoles the
ambient chant of Indian women.
Shanta Noir is never stuck for ideas as to how to build a creative bridge,
avoiding the aloofness of other electronic genres by putting to the fore the
powerful performance of his musicians. The music is ardently multicultural,
seducing the soul into dialogue and leaving no doubt as to how much they want to
see their audience dance.
