The distinctive funky-gypsy sound of Govinda is the creative child of a classically trained musician whose cutting-edge performance style translates to a wide audience. "I fell in love with the violin when I was eight years old and started playing classical music. I became interested in gypsy music and other music that represents my ancestry, which got me into the World music scene - specifically Middle Eastern, Indian, Celtic and Flamenco music. I began to blend this music with a more danceable, kind of trippy, funky psychedelic sound."
Originating from Austin, Texas, Govinda keeps busy both on the concert stage and in the recording studio. He gives a multi-sensory, mesmerizing live show that is a cross between a rave, a classical Indian concert and a Cirque du Soleil performance. His 1998 Earthtone Records release, o earthly gods, features the artist on violin with layered ambient vocals and downtempo grooves,. Entwined & Entranced, Govinda''s second album (October 1999, Earthtone Records), offers 12 tracks that continue the spirit of his signature sound. The latest release, Echoes of Eden, explores hauntinly sexy voice and violin. It''s filled with trippy downtempo and drum and bass beats, dubbed out turntablism and random ecstatic noise. Guest performances by Chrysta Bell, Jennifer Folker, Oliver Rajamani and more.
