 This is the time for dreamers
... so what are you waiting for!

Shanti Powa is a 10-piece big band from Italy that produces a powerful mix of various
genres with lyrics in English, German and Italian.

Since the project was founded back in 2010 the band made itself a name, playing hundreds of shows around Europe and releasing 4 studio albums and numerous singles. Their songs are played by radio stations in over 160 countries worldwide.

Shanti Powa don’t have a specific target audience. At their live shows they bring together all kinds of people, no matter their age or music preferences. Diversity is a prevailing characteristic of the band, as they create a unique mix of Reggae, Funk, Rap, Dub, Dancehall, Rock and Ska.
Each song with a message, each show with a distinctive atmosphere involving everyone.
As their name states: “Shanti” for peace and “Powa” for the special energy in their songs and at their shows.

Besides performing at some of the most important music festivals in Europe
(such as Boomtown Fair in UK or Rototom Sunsplash in Spain), in December 2022 they brought the Shanti vibe to the United States, at the infamous 9:30 Club in Washington opening for Hip Hop Legend Rakim as part of the International Anti-Corruption Conference.
