Helming from an island in the Arabian Gulf (Bahrain) known for being a melting pot of ethnicities and cultures, this diversity is heavily reflected in this sound. The Shantaraam music project aims on bridging the divide, bringing east and west together. The sounds encompasses a wide spectrum of eastern influences blended with modern electronic instruments. The inception of this new project is attributed to the inspiration of many things including Gregory David Robert's Book Shantaram; as well as a deep passion to spread the sound of spiritual ascension, the music that i hope to deliver aims on bringing awareness to the divide between the ethnicities and religious factions caused by genocide, war and strife. This Shantaraam project is a wake up call for everyone to realize that the power of change only comes from within and if we are to move forward and sustainably in today's deteriorating planet then we can find common ground in the harmony of the universal language of music. Music can be more then a tool for distraction, it can be a revolutionary instrument of peace.
