Govinda fuses beautifully spooky melodies inspired from across the planet with sexy beats and crunchy, ambient atmosphere. Govinda has played with Thievery Corporation, DJ Spooky and Cheb I Sabbah and been featured in compilations such as Buddha Bar II, Asian Travels II, and Nirvana Lounge.

The Govinda live show features professional dancers and live projections. The mix of freshly cut vinyl beats, hauntingly seductive violin melodies, emotive dance expression and visual video feast makes for a truly multi-sensory experience.

Govinda is the alter-ego of Austin, Texas born producer/composer Shane O Madden. He began studying violin and composition at the age of eight and went on to study at the University of Texas School of Music.

It was O Madden’s pursuit of his gypsy roots that opened his ears to the World Music scene. During his search, he found a particular affinity for the Middle-Eastern, Indian, Celtic and southern Spanish musical cultures. Inspired by his passion for urban psychedelia, he combines these diverse styles of music with the beats and sounds of modern electronic music.

govinda - entwined and entranced
released: October 19, 1999

Amazon.com
Govinda, a.k.a. Shane O'Madden, has a magic touch when blending diverse elements such as guitar, programming, violin, and sarod to create an enticing electronic music with hints of the Middle East, India, and British Isles. "Erotic Mystics" is such an example, with its heavy hip-hop beat below the crying of the sarod and Clarita Sanchez's delicate spoken word. "Aspetta" wraps sounds of Celtica around O'Madden's unadorned vocal callings, while "Next to Godliness" recalls the elevated, vocal praising of Sufi qawwali and ragas. Spanish guitar dominates the album early on with "Quintessence of Dust" and the intriguing "Compassion," a trip-hoppy dance endeavor that's laced with treated voice and electronic programming. "Le Zephyr" somehow manages to make a tinkly piano à la George Winston work with the ethereal soul of Amy Atchley's vocals--again manifesting Govinda's alchemist talents. --Karen K. Hugg

govinda - erotic rhythms from earth
released: May 8, 2001

Amazon.com
If the afterworld includes a red-light district, Erotic Rhythms from Earth would qualify as its soundtrack. The third recording from Austin, Texas programmer/multi-instrumentalist Shane O'Madden beckons you into an off-focus world of amorphous boundaries, one that hovers somewhere between eternity and soft-core carnality. Offering an assortment of quirky temptations too intriguing to resist, O'Madden blurs Middle Eastern textures (principally generated via violin) and ambient electronic wayfaring with sultry, unhurried trip-hop textures, subtle female cooing, and understated rhythms. It all combines to exude a beguiling mood of faint danger and fashionable decadence, where the final destination is a bazaar of hidden, delicious pleasures. If the disc's arresting cover image speaks to you, so, too, will this exotic, oddly accessible slice of imaginative trip-hop. Worth repeated plays are the mysterious, X-Files-in-India groove of "City of Pleasures," the propulsive beat of "Falling from Grace," the spray of colored light stirred by the growling rhythm of "Organic Beauty," and the erotic whispers of "Clear with Fantasy." The whole thing is strangely seductive. --Terry Wood
