On Saturday, September 29, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and University of Oregon Campus Radio 88.1 FM KWVA proudly welcome to the WOW Hall Govinda featuring dancer Jordan Remar, The Mandala Affect and Bassmint.
Govinda is the alterego of Austin based producer/composer Shane Madden. Shane studied classical violin at the University of Texas — where he fell in love with electronic music production. In pursuit of his gypsy roots, Madden opened his ears to music from around the world. From experiences learning violin with mysterious masters on his journeys across the globe and his passion for modern design and technology, the current sound of Govinda was born. Govinda has played with Thievery Corporation, Tipper, Bassnectar, Shpongle, Cheb I Sabbah, STS9 and many more, and been featured on over 25 compilations such as Buddha Bar II, Asian Travels II, and Nirvana Lounge selling a combined 400,000 copies. Govinda has played at numerous festivals throughout North America including Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Sea of Dreams, SXSW and Govinda’s music has been used on TV as well as many independent films. The Govinda show is truly a multi-sensory experience that immerses the audience with a textured exotic atmosphere which features mesmerizing vocals, visual performance artist Jordan Remar, live projection and live gypsy violin for a truly energetic and magical live presence.
