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."
