Biography

There are 4 known artists who promote under the name Shanti.

1. Shanti Matkin, a psytrance producer, who is part of Krome Angels too. He is brother of Riktam Matkin from GMS.
2. “Shanti”, an Indo-American Group (1969-70) (…see bio below)
3. Shanti Snyder (1981.6.4; Kanagawa, Japan) is a Japanese/American lyricist, singer, songwriter, and music TV host.
4. Shanti Wintergate is a Canadian/American musician/actress/writer.

From San Francisco, this Californian-meets-India group played a very relaxed mystic blend of music, alternating instrumental cuts with vocal songs. Adding instruments such as sarod, dholak and tablas to their regular guitar/bass/drums line-up Shanti created an exotic, rootsy aura, never mind the spiritual lyrics. Ustad Zakir Hussein in one of his earliest recordings.
