Andrew Concha aka Shambala’s passion for music began in his home country of Colombia. Growing up in both South and North America, his unique and rich hybrid of backgrounds and influences are reflected in both his music and his uncanny talent to get the masses off their asses and grooving on the dance floor.
Playing alongside such talents as Mark Farina, LTJ Bukem, Uberzone, Bassnectar and most recently Colette, Chuck Love, and Chus & Ceballos, Shambala over time has both mixed tunes and produced tracks in almost every genre known to the electronic world. As he focuses in on minimal & tech house sounds, he maintains the grooves and depth of funk, latin, progressive and deep house, seamlessly creating an array of luscious music, full of bass, that’s powerful while still maintaining a fresh, fun vibe.
A multifaceted artist, Shambala has also been a host, sound engineer, promoter and featured DJ for many music festivals and events, including Warehouse Party residencies in San Francisco, Oakland & Berkley, countless Earthdance festivals around the US, and numerous Winter Music Conferences in Miami Beach, Florida.
The Miami and Tampa area have also been a recent favorite of DJ Shambala’s gigs, including such venues as Club Space, Hotel Clinton, Laundry Bar & Hotel Raleigh in Miami, as well as Jackson’s, AJA Channelside & The Mangroves in Tampa.
Shambala’s latest feature release is “The Next Best Thing” – a collaborative tech-house track with Ashley Albritton, a talented musical artist and DJ from San Francisco. Together this dynamic duo found their creative spark in an effort to create new sounds, producing this groovy track with multiple layers of funk that’s equally pleasing to the ears as it is to the body and soul.
As his fan base mounts and the musical buzz surrounding Shambala grows, he continues to live and breathe music every day….never stopping the persistent search for what’s next, for that new sound, that elusive beat that drives us all….“Let it Be House!”
