Shastro is a multi-instrumentalist, born in Italy. The development of his unique musical style evolved over many years during his frequent visits to other countries such as Spain, Turkey, Africa, South America and India.
These journeys were inspired by a spiritual search that led him to experience meditation in India and creating music for various meditation techniques. His music can best be described as relaxed world music. He performs on Spanish guitar, Indian Bansuri flute, Clarinet, African Kora harp, Indian Dilruba, Native American flutes and other ethnic instruments all with equal ease and beauty, integrating sometime ancient instruments into a compelling contemporary sound. Shastro specializes in music to drift away on - even his upbeat titles exude this relaxed soothing effect.
Shastro is the president of Malimba Records that he founded in 1997 to help distribute his music as well as the music of several other musicians and friends. At present he has created 17 albums for the label's catalog.
