Shakhan is the musical outlet primarily of Davyd Homan. Davyd is a singer song writer who enjoys home brew recording and dipping his finger into some juice software (which doesn't always taste great).
Our first brew was made in London.
THE SYSTEM is a collection of 10 protest songs. It was met with some reaction to its lyrical content, especially to 'Silent Screams'.
After a move to Oz (Australia) Shakhan slaved over the vat and was able to bottle up some sound.
FORGOTTEN TREE is a mixture of full band and acoustic songs, with focus on rhymes and
After moving to Aotearoa (New Zealand, I know, another move!)
WHAKAKA (Maori for light) came gushing forth. This is very much a spiritual album with a focus on what Shakhan believes in. Musically, there are some interesting electronic sounds on tracks such as “Old Man”and “Hands” and a spaced out guitar sound on “You made the blue”. There is still a lot of guitar based music hanging in there.This album also features the female vocals of Grace (the ace) and Tzukeet (drummer girl) who also perform on flute and percussion.
MANGAI is another brew from the home studio of Shakhan. Plenty of guitar thrown into the mix gives Mangai the overall taste of Indie Rock. There is also a pinch of Folk and Classical added. You will find in your glass songs like "Gun", "Porn" and "Death Row", with love songs "Ha Shem Has Given" and "Irish Orchid".
Recorded in Kirikiriroa, in Aotearoa, (Hamilton, New Zealand), Mangai is home grown stuff with a good colour.
Yes, a new album is coming soon 99% finished. It contains a heavier sound, based more on guitar riff.
Have a taste, and if you don't like it just spit it out.
