Kula Shaker, one of the most popular British bands of the late 90s post-Britpop era. Led by outspoken frontman Crispian Mills, the band enjoyed great commercial success in the UK between 1996 and 1999, notching up a number of Top 10 hits on the UK Singles Chart, including “Tattva”, “Hey Dude”, “Govinda”, “Hush”, and “Sound of Drums”. In addition, the band’s debut album, K, reached #1 on the UK Albums Chart, becoming the fastest selling debut album in Britain since Oasis’ Definitely Maybe.
The band are known for their interest in traditional Indian music, culture, and mysticism, with a number of their most famous songs, including “Tattva” and “Govinda”, featuring lyrics written in the Hindu sacred language, Sanskrit. In addition, many of the band’s songs feature traditional Indian instruments, such as the sitar, tamboura, and tabla, juxtaposed with guitar-heavy, Western rock instrumentation. While the band’s interest in all things Indian was partly inspired by a pilgrimage to Indian that Mills undertook in the early 1990s, it was also born out of a love for the Indian influences present in the music of The Beatles and other late 1960s acts.
Kula Shaker disbanded in September 1999 but reformed in 2004 for sessions for the School of Braja compilation album. This led to plans for a full comeback, although the reformation was not widely publicized until the beginning of 2006. The band’s third album, Strangefolk, was released in 2007.
Soon releasing their new album Pilgrim’s Progess, the band will be on their first Asia tour and are set to perform in KL.
