Shiva Machine CD by Girish offers trance-funk grooves and trip-hop devotional Sanskrit Mantras and Chants for Yoga music and Kirtan.

Girish's life journey has been marked by a series of profound transformations, unified by an underlying journey toward purpose. He has gone from aspiring jazz drummer to renunciant Hindi monk to first call tabla guru for the likes of Krishna Das to solo mantra troubadour, and he's not done yet. Where the uninitiated might see restlessness in these transitions, Girish sees a commitment to continual refinement of his life purpose: "in hindsight these changes seem drastic. But, in the moment, it was the only thing that could've happened. The calling was so strong, I really had no other choice."

It should come as no surprise then that Girish's CD, Shiva Machine is a radical departure and simultaneous next step evolution. The music's mesmerizing trance-funk grooves and trip-hop devotional dirges boldly go where Sanskrit has never gone before.

Girish has travelled  and performed with Bob Kindler, known as Babbaji, and has studied with legendary tabla master Swapan Chanduri at the Ali Akbar School of Music in Marin County, California. It was in northern California that Girish met other musicians at the forefront of the chant music explosion in this country. Krishna Das was just gaining popularity at that time and Girish played with him regularly. In this context, Girish was quickly introduced to a wider world of music for yoga. Soon he was accompanying many of the names in the yoga music genre, including Wah!, Dave Stringer, Thomas Barquee, Snatam Kaur, Shanti Shanti, Steve Ross, Swaha and Rasa. His move to Los Angeles in 2000 brought him to the nation's epicenter of chanting and world music.

Girish continues to explore and expand musical borders, and has found new avenues for his artistic expression. Yearning to express the power of Sanskrit mantras through his own voice has been a driving force behind his CD's, Reveal, Shiva Machine, and his new release Diamonds in the Sun.

If you want a taste of what boundless aesthetic possibilities sound like when they collide with Sanskrit chant, Shiva Machine is your masterpiece.
