TEACHERS

Govinda

Govinda is the alter-ego of producer/composer Shane Madden. He began studying violin and composition at the age of eight and went on to study classical violin where he fell in love with electronic music production. It was in Madden’s pursuit of his gypsy roots that 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. The Govinda live show immerses the audience as a participant with a textured atmosphere of exotic bass vibrations interwoven with cosmic visuals, world class dancers and mesmerizing vocals – all in harmony with live electronics and violin.
