Acclaimed Internation Percussionist
Sudha Kheterpal is a British-Indian musician best known as the percussionist in Faithless. In 2008 she toured with The Return of the Spice Girls. She has also played with K-Klass, Kylie Minogue, Melanie Williams, Jo Roberts, Corduroy, Mark Morrison, Rae and Christian, Ian Brown, Talvin Singh, and Dido.Sudhaʼs belief that we need to look at how to harness alternative sources of renewable energy, combined with the understanding that music has the power to unite us all on a global level, has led her to develop a musical percussion shaker called SPARK.This shaker enables people to generate electricity, so they can plug in a light or charge up a mobile phone, simply through having a music jam. It is being taken around the world to areas without electricity as part of Sudhaʼs initiative, Shake Your Power.
