Deep Sufi inspired sound that transcends boundaries and brings mystical intoxication to the dance floor. Creating potent ritualistic swirls of ecstasy for the body, mind and soul. A collaboration between Paskal Suraj, Walkerji and a global family of musicians spanning continents.
Paskal Suraj brings the voice, oud and bouzouki to the group and is a globe trotting luminary and member of the Sufi Qawwali group Fanna-Fi-Allah. He has made a life of seeking out the most resonant and potent songs and music from traditions across the world. A serious student of sacred music and master of living the life extraordinary.
Walkerji provides the production, beats and electronic context for the ensemble. He grew up on an ashram with parents who introduced him to meditation and sacred music traditions at an early age. His journey has wound through myriad sonic chapters across scenes, countries and decades, playing deep in the Berlin clubland trenches for years and now based in Bali producing music, festivals, and lighting up intentional dance music spaces around the world.
Walkerji is a co-founder of the Air Festival in Bali and the Uma Sai gathering.
As Sūkira travels the world they collaborate with a select group of high level musicians who have spent years in their study of middle eastern, Sufi and Indian music incorporating them into the ensemble for site specific events.
