SHIVA SHAKTI, California 2001
Shiva (Phil) Jones, the soulful leadsinger of the renowned 1970's mystical rock band QUINTESSENCE, and his musical partner, Swiss recording artist Rudra (Ralph) Beauvert, have created a contemporary soul stirring musical odyssey that will transport you on a unique journey from the depths of Inner Spirit to the outer reaches of Blissful Consciousness. Shiva and Rudra have artfully merged the sincere and inspirational devotional chants of the East with the innovative and boundless Euro-Rock influences of the West.
SHIVA SHAKTI, San Luis Obispo, 2001
SHIVA JONES is back!
Namaste brothers and sisters out there. Shiva (Phil) Jones and Rudra (Ralph) Beauvert have recorded a new album called Shiva Shakti. Having not been idle musically in the United States with bands such as PHIL JONES AND ROOM 101, for the first time since his Quintessence and Kala days Shiva has put down vocals for a modern Ragarock project. Together with alpine brother Rudra they split the recording sessions between the Mooncow HQ studio in Winterthur, Switzerland, the Acoustic Legacy Studios in Cambria, California, and the Tone Palace Recording Studios in Taos, N.M. As Shiva Shakti we have re-recorded a number of songs Shiva came up with in Quintessence i.e. The Seer, High on Mt. Kailash, Sea of Immortality, Notting Hill Gate, Brahman, and others. There is new stuff like Shiva Shakti, Parvati Devi, Orango Tango, More than meets the Eye, or Dark Brother. In the July 2002 issue of Aural Innovations you may read the interview with Phil where he talks about his spiritual work and also the new music with Shiva Shakti. To read it, click HERE.
