Emcee, DJ, producer and percussionist Srikala performs live in the Clocktower studios and discusses life and art with host DJ Shakey. As a DJ, Srikala uses Ableton Live to perform his original music, improvising live with Indian percussion and ambient vocals. His projects incorporate dub, hip hop, reggae, world beats and sacred mantras. His mission is to uplift, open hearts and move bodies.

Growing up in the streets of Bedford Stuyvesant in Brooklyn, NYC and the son of West Indian parents, Srikala naturally gained a deep love for listening to and creating hip hop, R&B, dub and reggae music. His mother always had a variety of styles in the tape deck and his musical palate expanded as he aged, incorporating many different approaches to musical expression through rock, blues, pop and jazz. At the age of 18, life led him to set aside the world and live as a monk for 6 years where he studied the science of transcendental sound vibration in the Bhakti tradition.

Transitioning from monastic life and into the world, Srikala trained in audio engineering at the Institute of Audio Research in New York City and began releasing albums in Fall of 2011. In the last three years, Srikala has released four albums and has worked in collaboration with many amazing artists around the world.

Srikala is the lead singer and percussionist with The Flowdown, a jazz funk fusion band and collaborates regularly with EarthRise SoundSystem.
