The Dreamtree Project is the Indian dub fusion project of ethno electronic master Adham Shaikh and sitar virtuoso Uwe Neumann, featuring tablas by Shankar Das and Flutes by Marty Carter. This dynamic duo weaves a magic carpet ride of Classical Indian raga afloat a dub cloud of swirling tabla, mystical flutes, spacey beats and booming basslines. Beyond notions of East meets West, Dreamtree conjures a fertile space for all who long to be seduced by the ritual power of music and the possibility of enlightened communal engagement!
This highlight reel features global electronica producer Adham Shaikh performing at festivals in his various live configurations: solo, and with assorted musicians from his Dreamtree and Outworld Orkestra projects. The footage was shot at Commodore Jazz Fest, Shambhala Festival, Bass Coast, Beats without Borders, Symbiosis, Sonic Bloom, The Royal, Vancouver Folk Fest and Salmon Arm Roots n Blues. Filmed by Recordo Media, Cooper Bros, Michael Berz, Saugat Datta, Bohdan Doval, Sam Jacy, Mike Santos and VJ Electrabelle.
