Kaminanda's ever-evolving sound is a playground of original Midtempo grooves, tribal rhythms, Psy-Dub, and lush downtempo textures. His music is designed to take the listener/dancer on a journey traversing landscapes reflecting a myriad of diverse influences; a kaleidoscope of warm melodies and twisting, winding compositions. With six albums in his repertoire, this organic spaceship of frequencies balances musicality and ethereal soundscapes to evoke a deeper and hypnotic experience.
Traversing the cosmos, gliding across dimensions beyond time and space, Kalya Scintilla brings universal shamanic journeys through his music to planet earth straight from his heart. His music paints sacred soundscapes with world fusion beats from ancient futures hidden amongst our forgotten memories to bring forth lush healing vibrations to activate the dormant codes within us. Infusing his love for nature, tribal healing, sacred geometry, and Hathor wisdom; Kalya is able to birth heart opening crescendos that open doorways into our personal and collective awakening. Audiences across the world have successfully received his musical transmissions enabling his ability to travel and play at festivals across continents. His vision for the future holds his devotional intention to plant more seeds of galactic sound alchemy to be felt and experienced by all.
Birds of Paradise
Holophonic Vibrational Architecture to Make Transparent the Boundary Between Matter and Mind, Flesh and Spirit
Jamie Janover is recognized as a true innovator. His considerable creative output includes: being a master of the ancient percussion stringed instrument called the hammered dulcimer, inventing and performing on an instrument he calls the "mini-kit" (a miniature amplified drum kit), playing pyrocussion (fire drums) and creating the RealmsMobile (a recumbent tricycle with the mini-kit attached, enabling him to ride and play drums simultaneously).
Combining the innovations of modern technology with the wisdom of ancient instruments, Janover is achieving a creative balance between the electronic and the acoustic to create a unified field: music reflective of the nature of modern times.
For many years Janover has maintained a rigorous touring schedule, alternating between acts including: LYNX & Janover, ZILLA (w/ Michael Travis from SCI and Aaron Holstein), PRAANG (w/ EOTO & Steve Kimock) and The Everyone Orchestra (w/ a revolving lineup), among others. He is currently touring solo performing live PA set style electronic shows using his unique live rig which includes hammered dulcimer, laptop computer, mini-kit, sampler, sitar, electric kalimba and percussion.
When not playing music, you can find Janover connecting dots around the world in his extensive travels and collaborations in multiple creative realms including creating stunning images as a professional photographer, sculpture works using natural found objects and being an emissary for scientist Nassim Haramein of the Resonance Project, delivering fascinating presentations on the physics of unified field theory. Janover also produces music events including an annual electronic music festival in Colorado called SONIC BLOOM.

As a solo performer, or alongside a collective of world musicians, fusing together soundscapes of the ancient and the immediate, with the tribal dub grooves, his renowned sets bridge the gap between the organic and the electronic. Often collaborating with dancers and VJs, his shows are an uplifting and captivating multimedia experience. Adham is known worldwide for his live performances! He has played festivals in Australia New Zealand, Japan, Uk, Canada, Portugal, France, Holland. As a composer, Adham has written and produced for Disney, IMAX, Oakley, Burton, CBC, TVO and CTV. Adham has received a Canadian Juno Nomination, as well as a Leo award, and a BC Indie award for best world album in 2011! http://www.sonicturtle.com/about/

2010 highlights include headlining sets at Basscoast Festival, Shambhala Festival and Entheos Festival.
During the span of his 25-year musical career, Shaikh has consistently evolved and diversified as an artist, and the beats continue on. with two very solid full length album releases , Universal Frequencies and Resonance.
Complex soundscapes turn to glitch, break then flow; psychedelic sound infusions leak straight to the brain. Whitebear has a particular addiction to mangling samples and into twisted, dark sounds, coupling and contrasting them with infectious arpeggiations, crisp production and copious amounts of bass. Whitebear wisely combines glitch, IDM and ambient audible influence of bass and dubstep all with a serious psychedelic tone.
