  • Adham Shaikh is a composer, record producer and sound designer living near Nelson, British Columbia. Shaikh's interest in music began by exploring synthesizers in the early 1980s. In the early 1990s, he found the electronic music scene full of innovative and explorative sounds. This environment created an opportunity for him to present his compositions to an audience already embracing electronic music. Shaikh furthered his electro acoustic composition at Queen's University and has continued making music resulting in his present diverse discography. Shaikh's music is a blend of many different styles and techniques. It is a world groove blend of fusion, dub, world beat, tech house, ambient, and jazz. From growing up listening to Indian ragas and Western classical music, he developed an ear for a fusion of sounds from around the world. This musical blend of styles and traditions inspire his compositions. The 21st-century rituals of dance and chill-out have drawn Shaikh to explore the trance phenomenon that these different expressions of music create and allow. Over the years, Shaikh has had the pleasure to work with many talented musicians playing musical instruments from India; Bali, Indonesia; Africa; Scandinavia; Turkey; the United States; and Canada. Shaikh was nominated for a 2006 Juno award in the category of World Music Album of the Year. A remix of Shaikh's song "Water Prayer" was used as the soundtrack for the season 2 finale of the Canadian television series Orphan Black.
  • Adham Shaikh es un compositor, productor discográfico y diseñador de sonido, que vive cerca de Nelson (Columbia Británica). Sus 15 años de historia musical comenzaron con los sintetizadores en la década del 80. A principios de los 90, encontró el panorama de la música electrónica lleno de sonidos innovadores. Este entorno creó una oportunidad para que pudiese presentar sus composiciones a un público que ya había abrazado la música electrónica. Continuó su formación electroacústica en la Universidad de Queen y ha seguido haciendo música desde entonces, lo que explica su actual diversa discografía. Su música es una mezcla de muchos estilos y técnicas diferentes. Es una mezcla de tecno, música ambiental y jazz. Tras crecer escuchando raggas indios y música clásica occidental, desarrolló un oído para una gran mezcla de sonidos de todo el mundo. Esta mezcla musical de estilos y tradiciones ha inspirado sus composiciones. Los bailes y el chill-out típicos del siglo XXI han llevado a Shaikh a explorar el fenómeno de trance que estas diferentes expresiones musicales crean y permiten. Con los años, ha tenido el placer de trabajar con muchos músicos talentosos que tocan instrumentos de la India, Bali, Indonesia, África, Escandinavia, Turquía, Estados Unidos y Canadá. Fue nominado a los Premios Juno de 2006 en la categoría de Álbum musical mundial del año.
