adham shaikh (Nelson, BC) internationally renowned Juno and Emmy Award-nominated DJ. One of the finest producers of Global Bass Beats in the world today!
Shaikh skillfully weaves organic and electronic sounds into global music tapestries that take listeners on sonic journeys transcending time and place.

Burinata Duo Attacking the dance floor with their furious Turkish beats, Burning with Klezmer melodies and blasting Balkan.House tracks, they'll provide the musical fuel to energize your soul and fly you away.
