new world music
old world wisdom


Shimshai has traveled the world and beyond in search for the expression of truth through music in both original compositions and traditional adaptations. His ever growing collection of recorded music has something for everyone on the path, from sweet and simple acoustic melodies to upbeat infusions with his live band. Known for singing in several languages, Shimshai’s catalog ranges from ceremonial medicine music with his wife Susana, ancient Sanskrit and Hebrew prayers, to modern folk and reggae of his own direct inspiration~

Shimshai & Susana share their sacred and healing medicine music with the world.
