Grown up and socialised in a small place in Lower Austria, Herbert Bachhofer, better known as Shantisan, got in touch with the Black Music Culture very early. Influenced by friends and family he irresistibly had to start collecting records. A wide selection of hip-hop and downbeat records eventually led him to collecting Soul, Afro, Jazz, Bossa Nova and especially Brazilian records.
Until now Shantisan has done several Remixes as well as Re-Edits, including the well known “Oba La Vem Ela”-Re-Rub, released on Jazz Rec. in 2005. Shantisan’s true musical passion is Brazilian music which is definitely shown in his work with Brazilian singer Micheline Cardoso. His track „Favela Funk“ feat. Micheline Cardoso & Stefan Obermaier was released on Innvison Records.
