DownBeat Magazine

John McLaughlin and Zakir Hussain grace the cover of DownBeat Magazine

Shakti would like to thank DownBeat Magazine and Bill Milkowski for featuring the incredible band fusing world music with jazz that was started in 1973. Shakti is very excited to share their new music with everyone on June 23, 2023 – “This Moment”, out on Abstractlogix MusicMedia Records worldwide. In just a few weeks, the band will kick off the European and American leg of this 50th Anniversary tour starting with 2 nights in London at Shakti at Hammersmith Eventim Apollo featuring John McLaughlin and Zakir Hussain.
On their American leg of this tour, they are going to be joined by four of our very favorite musicians setting the tone every evening with their special set, each of them a musical visionary in their own right, Béla Fleck, John Scofield, Bill Frisell and Jerry Douglas. Shakti is looking forward to sharing this incredible and unique experience with everyone worldwide very soon!
