Symbiosis Gathering brings boundary breaking music, killer yoga, natural beauty, and GODS ROBOTS together
Composed of ethereally beautiful carnatic vocalist ShriiK and SF's own Janaka Selekta of the much-missed Worldly parties, the "intergalactic San Francisco-Mumbai" act has been honing its sound from Lower Haight to Sri Lanka with a 1970s-style dub soundsystem set-up, and is pretty huge right now on the subcontinent, with a Sony India deal and big following. Indian classical musicians Alam Khan on the sarod and Suhail Yusuf Khan on sarangi are also part of the band (www.facebook.com/godsrobots).
"Our goal is to bring different worlds and cultural ideas together to create music and performance that is so cohesive that you do not see the seams," Selekta told me. Sounds like a perfectly symbiotic proposition to me.
