The Philadelphia Inquirer: John McLaughlin said no to being a permanent member in Miles Davis’ band. Then he founded Shakti.

Branavan Ganesan of The Inquirer writes: “If this is your first Shakti concert, be ready to witness virtuosity, onstage mirth, multi-genre layering, telekinetic improvisations, and pure, unbridled joy. Longtime fans can expect to hear familiar favorites and be wowed by the music that was composed for this tour.

“The kind of musical traditions in and around the city [are] mind-boggling,” Hussain said of Philadelphia. “There is African, Afro Cuban, Arabic, Indian music and traditions. So to come there [to Philly] is to sample and be a part of that experience.”

They are excited to perform in Philadelphia. This will be a concert to remember.”
