John McLaughlin’s Shakti in Pori Jazz 1976


Do you like Indian music with jazzy spices – or guitar jazz flavored with exotic instruments and micro intervals?

That’s how I would describe Shakti, the fusion band established by guitarist John McLaughlin with the Indian violin player L. Shankar, Zakir Hussain on tabla and T. H. “Vikku” Vinayakram on ghatam.

The pictures are from two Pori Jazz Festival concerts on July 16 and 17, 1976. (Click to see them larger.)
