I’ve recently had the good fortune of working with Onkar in both live performance and in recordings for my internationally recognized world fusion project, Eccodek. The collaborations with Onkar on Shivaboom, the 3rd album by Eccodek find his mellifluous and sensual vocal style adding a fresh new sound to the band’s identity. With the evocative dub, tribal and trance like treatments of the recordings, Onkar’s vocal presence sparkles with vitality and a powerful essence of the spiritual realm. I was also recently invited to join Onkar in a live gala performance of one of his original Kirtan-fusion compositions, only to learn that his skill is not just limited to the controlled environment of the studio but is right at home before a rapt audience of listeners as well.
