He says, “I am extremely excited to tour India as playing in front of a live audience gives me a high. I am sure we will rock each city.”

Shri is a bassist inspired by Led Zeppelin and German bass icon Eberhard Weber. Led Zeppelin is a rock band from 1980s and Eberhard is great jazz-based player who has unique style of playing that inspired him.

Shri loves to play fusion with a battalion of loopers, effects and computers. Shri strongly believes in creating music on stage, note after note, without backing tracks or samples onwards and uses a fretless bass guitar, tabla, Indian flutes as his entire musical prowess.

He has performed at Glastonbury Festival in the UK, composed background score and composed music for the Google Chrome short-film. He performs with a battalion of loopers, effects and computers where analog meets digital and folk meets electronica.

After Delhi, the three of them will move to Hyderabad, Jaipur and Pune to enthrall the audience. They will present something new in each of the four cities.

It will be a treat for Indian audiences in these cities as Shri’s magic lies in different layers of music that are woven into a tapestry of sounds, with Shri himself adding the necessary rhythms in bits and pieces, blending in the sounds of traditional instruments along with electronic drums and beats.
