Govinda is the alter-ego of Austin based producer/composer Shane Madden. He began studying violin and composition at the age of eight and went on to study classical violin at the University of Texas where he fell in love with electronic music production. It was in Madden’s pursuit of his gypsy roots that he opened his ears to music from around the world. From experiences learning violin with mysterious masters on his journeys across the globe and his passion for modern design and technology, the current sound of Govinda was born.

Govinda has played with Thievery Corporation, Tipper, Bassnectar, Shpongle, Cheb I Sabbah, STS9 and many more and been featured on over 25 compilations such as Buddha Bar II, Asian Travels II, and Nirvana Lounge selling a combined 400,000 copies. Govinda has played at numerous festivals throughout North America including Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Sea of Dreams, SXSW and more. Govinda’s music has been on TV including stations like WB, MTV and Bravo as well as many independent films.

The Govinda show is truly a multi-sensory experience that immerses the audience with a textured exotic atmosphere which features mesmerizing vocals, professional dancer and fire performer, Jordan Proper,  live projections, live gypsy violin for a truly energetic and magical live presence. ~ Official Bio.

 Brazilian Music Festivals are the roots of DJ Marjo Lak's career, inspired by the collective celebration that is DANCE. At the forefront of the Brazilian Electronic Music Scene since 2001, Marjo sharpened her skills in organizing, promoting, producing, and playing parties. In 2005, she and fellow Brazilian DJs (all friends) coined their tech-house music collective, "Butter Music Brazil," and became one of the leading underground party scenes in the country. Marjo's passion is the slippery sounds of buttery bass lines that inspire entire dance floors; a musical lubricant that whips bodies into rhythmic movements. Her eclectic soundscapes range from Tech-house, Electro Swing, Brazilian Pop, World, Soul, Funk, Dub to disco, and jazz. She can soothe a chill room with soft and creamy downtempo beats, or make the dance floor sizzle with the energetic, greasy textures of techno, tech-house also influenced by deep house. Currently residing behind the Redwood Curtain of California’s North Coast, Marjo can often be spotted spreading her buttery beats on dancefloors throughout Humboldt County. In 2013, Marjo initiated SUMMERTRONICA, the first all-electronic music tent, at the 30+ year Mateel’s Summer Arts & Music Festival in Benbow, CA. In 2015, she was embraced as a member of the long-standing, local (and loved) DJ collective Deep Groove Society.  For the past 6 years, DJ Marjo Lak has become known in the Humboldt Electronic Music scene for her creative and strong sets, frequently playing with local favorites as well as headlining music events. DJ Marjo Lak has also played some of the top festivals in the world including: Sonica – Italy, Universo Pararello - Brazil, Symbiosis and Northern Nights Music Festival 2015 & 2016, Jamboree Trinity – California, as well as many parties in NYC, Goa, India, and Entheocentric with artist Alex Grey – San Francisco.  Recently DJ Marjo Lak was invited to share the stage with the world renowned Dj Gaudi, Audiograph, Delhi to Dublin!
