Working and recording with musicians from all around the globe, Amanaska is a cross cultural exchange of musical ideas and grooves. Simon regularly spends time in southern India recording with KV Balukrishnan and other fine Indian musicians. Amanaska’s Circles is a cultural feast of eclectic music for lovers of world fusion, and was recorded in the UK, USA, India and finished in Melbourne. This mid to down tempo album is a richly layered musical experience that blends organic sounds and electronica with worldly and spiritual influences. A supreme mix of female and male vocals and ethnic harmonies, with beautiful string arrangements, alongside earthy percussive elements and moody hypnotic rhythms and beats.
Amanaska is all about creating interesting and unique audio and visual experiences with his live show. Sounds from around the globe blend with the deep earthy tones of the didgeridoo to create a uniquely Australian soundscape and celebration of life and diversity across many cultures.
