The ShaMANoiD is the bridge between the ancient spiritual and ancestral worlds of the Shaman and the magic in the technology of the future humanoid. – A fusion of cutting edge electronica and acoustic tribal, ethnic and world music.
ShaMANoiD’s music was initially created especially for the SomaSoundSystem – The secret Electro Tribal Gatherings held at sacred sites in Mexico and Guatemala at spectacular locations such as on top of Mayan Temples, archeological sites, sacred caves (Cenotes), Peyote Deserts, Volcanos etc.
ShaMANoiD is created by British producer Stef Soma, a direct evolution from the UK based act known as Divine Soma Experiment (DSE), DJ Soma, and the SomaSoundSystem production. These acts have toured Japan, China, Bali, Malaysia, Thailand, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, Mexico, USA, Canada, UK, France, Switzerland, Spain and most of Western Europe, playing festivals and other venues. In Western Canada alone they have featured as a headliner at Motion Notion, Diversity Festival, EarthDance Vancouver, Soundwave, Towards Eden, Entheos Gathering etc and supported Tipper, Kraddy, Ott, Heyoka, Adham Shaikh.
DSE/ShaMANoiD group members have featured Roly Wynne (founding member from Ozric Tentacles UK), Max Pashm (Levellers & Electro Swing Club UK), Mick Reid (Ship of Fools & Celt Islam UK), James Hamilton as well as many other top artists.
Much of their music is freely available from their website www.ShaMANoiD.com
