Calima Shatiday composes and plays a variety of musical styles. His main focus since early 2000 is creating music to chill to for the electronic downtempo genre, but clearly evident in his music is an influence of fusion, jazz, ambient, r&b and lounge. Originally a jazz musician, Calima became inspired to produce more mellow music in the early 2000's listening to SOMA-FM's GrooveSalad. He was smitten by the sounds of The Cinematic Orchestra, Milosh, Trentemøller, Afterlife and DZihan & Kamien. Since 2006, Calima has produced 9 albums.
