Larisa Stow & the Shakti Tribe
Larisa Stow & Shakti Tribe, a band here to wake, shake and create a vibration-raising revolution with their edgy blend of mantra-infused rock, will be performing live at The Green House, April 28, 7 p.m., for a sacred music concert.
Fronted by Los Angeles Music Award's "Singer/Songwriter of the Year" and force of nature Larisa Stow, their music is an East meets West fusion of English and Sanskrit. Shakti Tribe is Kimo Estores on lead guitar, Benj Clarke on base & vocals, Richard Hardy (Carole King, Dave Matthews Band, Lyle Lovett, David Lindley) on woodwinds and Paloma Estevez on drums and percussion.
Hitting the road in two SUVs packed with people, gear and merchandise for 80-100 shows a year, these road warriors are committed to creating community wherever they go. Larisa's captivating style & stellar vocals combined with her band's impeccable musicianship have earned them main stage slots at numerous festivals in the US and abroad including Earthdance & Bali Spirit Festival, opening act spots for well known artists, and appearances with spiritual leaders including Deepak Chopra. "Reaching In," co-produced by Larisa and Grammy award-winner Rick Hahn (Celine Dion), was released in 2007 by Oreade Music and received widespread airplay on XM, Sirius Satellite and Dish Network as well as college and internet radio.
Their latest self-produced release "Rock On Sat Nam!" is an exquisitely crafted mix of empowered rap, rock, pop, Sanskrit, world rhythms and slamming beats. In addition to the cast of musical characters already mentioned, other notable friends from both the mainstream & sacred music world contributed their time and talent to this project including pianist David Garfield (Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Boz Scaggs), Benjy Wertheimer (Shantala, Krishna Das, Deva Premal, Ancient Future) and Patrick Richey (Dave Stringer). "Sat Nam" translated means "Truth is Who We Are" and audiences always join in to sing this rock anthem with Larisa.
Taking to heart Gandhi's philosophy "Be the Change You Wish to See in the World," Larisa Stow & Shakti Tribe also give special concerts in prisons, jails, juvenile detention facilities and recovery centers where they share tools of transformation including yoga, mantra, and meditation to affect positive change, inspire personal responsibility and create Peace.
The concert will be held on April 28, 7 p.m., at The Green House (at Biddle's Nursery), 1335 W. 89A, Info: (928) 203-1147 or www.BhaktiTribeSedona.com. Tickets are $15 at the door.
