Shakti – Verboden Dromen
In the late ‘80s to the early ‘90s, Belgian duo, Praga Khan & Chris Inger joined together as Shakti. Verboten Dromen is a collection of the best of Shakti’s moonless synth pop new wave dance grooves. Shakti is a Western discotheque rhythmic sound mixed with Eastern influences. Songs such as “The Awakening” and "Demonic Forces ” are paired with sultry and entrancing Arabic and Indian influenced melodies, noir-ish seductive synth pads, and mystic drum rhythms. It is no wonder this album continues to stand the test of time.
