June 11, 2014, New Orleans, LA – 'Dreaming of Now,' the Zone Music Reporter's #2 charting album by composer/acoustic guitarist Shambhu, was voted the 2013 Best Contemporary Instrumental Album at the 10th Annual Zone Music Reporter (ZMR) Music Awards Show in New Orleans on May 17th, 2014.

Shambhu exploded into the contemporary instrumental music world in October 2010 with his acclaimed #1 debut CD, 'Sacred Love,' which earned nominations for Best New Artist, Best Album of the Year, Best World Music CD, and Best Acoustic Instrumental. Reviewer Kathy Parsons wrote, "'Dreaming of Now' firmly establishes Shambhu as a leading guitarist and composer of the contemporary instrumental/new age music movement" and Michael Diamond of Music and Media Focus called 'Dreaming of Now,' "A musical masterwork that sets a new standard for music in this genre."

An accomplished guitarist and composer, who has performed with Carlos Santana, Narada Michael Walden, and Whitney Houston on her multi-platinum debut album, 'Whitney,' Shambhu's solo releases display an exquisite fusion of contemporary instrumental, world, Indian and jazz styles. His technical mastery of the guitar enables delicate expressions of nuance and subtlety while engaging audiences in deep spirit. Shambhu's music has been called 'magical,' a 'journey', and 'opening a space within.' Aside from his musical pursuits, Shambhu studied meditation for three decades with the renowned spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy and is the co-founder and former executive director of the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run.

'Dreaming of Now,' released in September 2013 on the Acoustic Shine label, was co-produced with Grammy award-winner Will Ackerman, founder of Windham Hill Records, and Thomas Eaton. Will Ackerman has been at the forefront of the New Age music scene, having produced such artists as George Winston, Michael Hedges, Alex DeGrassi, Liz Story and countless others.

Joining Shambhu on 'Dreaming of Now' are revered session players who have performed with a who's who of artists from Sting to Pat Metheny to John McLaughlin, including Eugene Friesen on cello, Jeff Oster on flugelhorn, Charlie Bisharat on violin, Premik Russell Tubbs on wind instruments, Kai Eckhardt on bass, Frank Martin on keyboards, Celso Alberti on drums and Jeff Haynes on percussion.
