This night will be a treat for all! I'll be joining Girish and his kirtan band to sing response and harmonies. Those who come will be in for a night of beautifully arranged music with rich musical landscapes.

"Girish, an accomplished musician of many genres, former monk infused in spiritual practice, loving wordsmith linking lyrics and rhythm in a blissful musical event, is currently on tour to support his new album (Mondolaya, June 2013) His widely acclaimed seven previous releases and tours popularized his original music in yoga studios, churches, and music festivals all over the world.

Girish sings traditional Sanskrit mantras with a modern, funky, yet deeply devotional twist. Accompanied by his amazing band, Girish invites his audience at his concert to participate by singing along, call and response chanting, and dancing. Girish invites students in the live music and yoga class to let go and let their yoga flow through the beats and rhythms of his soul stirring tunes.
 
Girish "Diamonds in the Sun" was recommended and featured in "The Calm-Down Playlist" in the February 2013 issue of O, The Oprah magazine, and has been instrumental in the growing popularity of chant and kirtan music in the United States."
