Shakka is a Santana tribute band from Honolulu Hawaii recreating the sound and looks of Carlos Santana and his band taking everyone on a musical journey back to 1969 Woodstock where it all started into the current “Supernatural” album.
Rarely does a band combine explosive guitars with an intense longing for meaning. “We have the best jobs in the world because we play music for a living and love doing it, but we didn’t get into this to try and sell something. For us, it’s about communicating and connecting with people on a different level.”
“We pride ourselves in taking some things you might think you know, and then twisting them around. We’re not trying to necessarily be different–it’s just the way we are. That keeps it interesting for us, and interesting for the fans as well.” “That’s how excited we were. I think a lot of that energy found its way into the music, which was our intent from the very beginning. We want each song to carry the listener on a journey, and we want to make sure the ride is as interesting as possible. The best way I can describe it is to say that this band is a celebration of being alive.”
