7:30 to 9:30pm
At East Eagle Yoga
18 East Eagle Road, Havertown, PA
I’m excited to announce my first east coast Kirtan concert on Friday September 24th, at East Eagle Yoga in Havertown. I’ve had a chance to record and perform a little with David Newman since I moved to the area and contribute to the Ammachi satsang at the Groff’s. I enjoyed playing live music for East Eagle’s Friday nite candlelight yoga class. It’s been wonderful getting to know the yoga and kirtan community in the Philly area.
I wrote my first bhajan many years ago in a cave temple in India, reciting a mantra with guitar in hand and letting whatever melody come through. It was a deep experience. On the 24th I’ll be performing my first CD, “Offering”, with a few songs thrown in from my up-and-coming second CD, “Blessing”.
Kirtan, or devotional singing, is another branch of yoga that deepens all aspects of your practice. Practicing bhakti yoga via kirtan, even for one evening, tends to enhance the other branches of yoga. The chanting of these ancient mantras, set to my original melodies, has a wonderful effect on your mind, body and spirit. The combination of a group singing in unison, the breathing aspect and the meaning and energy of the mantras creates something rich and magical. It will be a joy to share my music with you for an evening of sweet devotion, community and uplifting singing.
We’d love to have you join us!
