The Marin Independent Journal calls Shambhu "A consummate guitarist". Through a blend of folk, Indian and jazz styles, his music eases the busy minds of students, yogis, and the overworked. Common Ground says, “Shambhu is at once precise, skilled, sensitive and inventive way beyond the norm. Soothe overflows with inspired compositions and exquisite performances.”
Shambhu's second album, 'Dreaming of Now" won Best Contemporary Instrumental Album at the ZMR Music Awards (2013). Produced by Shambhu, Grammy winning producer Will Ackerman and Tom Eaton, the album featured an amazing backing band - George Brooks, Kai Eckhardt, Celso Alberti and Frank Martin along remarkable instrumentalists Eugene Friesen, Charlie Bisharat, Jeff Haynes, and Premik Russell Tubbs.
Shambhu is featured on Whitney Houston’s Whitney, Jeff Oster's Next,
Ricochet – The Echoes Living Room Concerts (Vol 20), two Will Ackerman compilations, The Gathering II, and The Gathering I (ZMR Award, "Best Album of the Year"), The Guitar - The Best of New Age Reviews, and on Ann Licater's Doorway to a Dream.
Shambhu also played or recorded with guitar legend Carlos Santana, Grammy winning producer Narada Michael Walden, and E-street saxist Clarence Clemons.
