About the Event
Here in this special time where the cororona virus leaves its mark worldwide, and has closed down venues and festivals, we fortunately have the opportunity to share our creativity and companionship over the world wide web. We - Electric Shaman - therefore intend to play a monthly concert on the Internet. These spectacular concerts will be streamed from the Roundhall in the Magical Garden.
It is a special thing to experience music together. So invite your friends so you can see the concert together even if you are not in the same home with them. The first two dates are 23 April and 14 May, 7 PM CET. Tickets are purchased here and you will be sent a personal link to the concert.

Harmony and electricity
When someone uses the term ’’supergroup’’, most people think of names such as Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Led Zeppelin – musical phenomena originating from the 60’s – and this line of thought is not too far off, when you encounter Electric Shaman anno 2020.
Sparks are flying, the atmosphere is electric, and the virtuosity is in its prime, when Jacob Moth, Asger Steenholdt, and Niclas Campagnol step on the stage. And to stay in line with the tradition of the revolutionary supergroups that came before, Electric Shaman is the result of three forceful profiles with distinct skillsets meeting in the spirit of synergy – together forming a constellation that illuminates the night sky.
Jacob Moth, equipped with his guitar and electrifying voice, has a background as a prime guitarist in the heavy rock band Fate, Savage Rose, Purple Haze as well as the band BL!NK, a huge South Korean success.
Asger Steenholdt, who’s in charge of the bass, has, in addition to his more than 20 years in the household name Big Fat Snake, deep connections to names such as Lars H.U.G., Caroline Henderson, and Love Shop.
Our phenomenal drummer, Niclas Campagnol, has spent his life playing with international names such as Mike Stern, Søren Lee, Billy Cobham, and Mathias ‘IA’ Eklund.
You will recognize our music as tense, graceful melodic progressions that culminate in atmospheric and ecstatic improvised rhythmical landscapes. Jacob Moth’s playful and equilibristic guitar play is challenged as well as supported by the awe-inspiring and oscillating nature of the rhythmical sections that accompany the guitar during its interstellar travels in the deep abyss of the musical odyssey.
‘’I’ve never experienced such intense and creative play, as I do with Asger and Niclas’’, Jacob Moth exclaims. ‘’During our sessions, I’m awarded with creative freedom, and together we explore territory that is yet to be known by man.’’
If you have a deep love for names such as Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Muse, and Snarky Puppy – you are most likely inclined to fall in love with the concept of ‘electric shamanism’.
