The key to this Shakti guitar riff is to “Shift” the fretting hand positions whilst employing strict alternate picking with the plectrum in the right hand as can be found in the guitar style of John Mclaughlin.

This is a great exercise for right hand picking technique by alternating with the plectrum starting on a “downstroke” whilst synchronising the left hand with the position shifts on the guitar fingerboard.
