The move to Reaper on Linux has gone well. Some nice new synths to play with like Surge,Odin 2 etc
and lets not forgetting Yoshimi.

Shakhan is very much alive and kicking. Busy moving from Cubase, over to Reaper on Linux.
Pray for us.

Have just uploaded a new single called “I Picked a Wildflower” see singles tab.
This song is taken from a live looping song. You can see the live performance on Shakhan’s Youtube channel.

I uploaded a new single called “Think for Yourself” see singles tab.
I know its a bit dark but its a lion in his den, taken from the lyrics.

“Why follow that fool to the lions den.”

Think For Yourself

Have uploaded a new single called “Laboured in Vain”, I am having a bit of a dig here
at people unwilling to listen, plus the digital version of Red Wing- Asaroke.(graphite pencil drawing)

Think For Yourself

Have uploaded a new piece of graphite pencil art for sale “Red Wing-Apsaroke
(Mixed Media, brown eyes)

Shakhan has gone a bit loopy! No not crazy, we have started
playing around with looping. The looping software is Luppp
running off Linux based OS. This is our first attempt with the song called Feel Free
which is based around Am blues. Enjoy.

Feel Free

Your busy day now ended, take the weight off your lovely feet
Let your pretty hair down, and dissolve into your seat
Now is the time to jump off your roundabout
A little glass of wine seeps in, then stress seeps out

You spent such a long day, working hard on your battlefield
Time to take your armor off, no, no need for your sword to wield
Now is the time to jump off your roundabout
A little glass of wine seeps in then stress seeps out

Think For Yourself

We have just released two singles 1 Feel Free which is taken from a live looping session.
Also 2 Little Bird a blues song.

Shakhan has a problem, but don’t worry its a good problem!
Let me explain: we have a back log of unreleased music, so
we have decided to take the easy route and to start releasing singles.
You can expect to see a slow but steady stream of singles from Shakhan in the near future.

For Shakhan 2020 was busy as we remixed and masters much of our repertoire.
All in all this worked out very well by pushing the vocals up front, adding more beat to the mixers. Separating sounds, a great improvement.

Today I added “Shakhan Art” links to the web site.
It contains a short description about the artist and the mediums used. Plus a graphite pencil and cg page displaying some of Shakhan art work.
