Look for the new album ShivaBOOM coming from Eccodek this fall.

White Swan/Rykodisc recording artists and Guelph's own global dub luminaries Eccodek, are thrilled to be heading out on a four date Canadian tour with very special guest - Juno Award winning vocalist, Kiran Ahluwalia. The golden voiced ghazal singer will be performing as part of the six piece bands hypnotic live show, melding her remarkable Indian vocals into the pulsing world infused beats and breaks that have made Eccodek one of the country's leading global groove collectives.

With two albums of soul shaking music to their credit and a successful string of festival dates under their belt, Eccodek creates some of the most evocative and dancable music you will ever hear live. And the flowering of the two studio tracks Ms. Ahluwalia has done with them to date, into a full fledged live experience, will make these some very special shows indeed. The tour starts in fine style with a headlining appearance at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival (a show that will be recorded by CBC Radio for future broadcast) and ends just six days later, with a performance in Ottawa as part of that cities legendary Canada Day celebrations. Catch them if you can.
