Shakti was a group which played a novel acoustic fusion music which combined Indian music with elements of jazz. Members were the English guitar player John McLaughlin, the Indian violin player Shankar, Zakir Hussain (on tabla), and R. Raghavan (on the Mridangam) and T. H. Vinayakaram (on Ghatam). In addition to fusing Western and Indian music, Shakti also represented a fusion of the Hindustani and Carnatic music traditions, since Hussain is from the North and the other Indian members are from the South.
