The past four months have been a wonderful whirlwind! From performing and teaching at all six Wanderlust Festivals in North America, to traversing Canada and then to Bulgaria and Germany, it’s been a busy summer of touring. We finish up the summer next weekend at Bhakti Fest West in Joshua Tree, California.
Some of my highlights from this summer include playing with Karsh Kale + the Wanderlust Tribe on massive outdoor stages high up in the mountains. In Bulgaria, seeing the incredible fruition of the first annual Yoga + Music festival in the Balkans, Udaya Live, after working with this festival team for over a year! In Germany, performing and teaching at the Jivamukti school in Munich, and playing bansuri with a Bavarian & Turkish brass band.
I am excited to announce that my new mantra album Shakti Sutra (New Earth Records) is now available for pre-order on Amazon and Sounds True. The official release date is October 9th, with an album release concert in Santa Monica, CA, on October 21 (save the date!). For those of you coming to Bhakti Fest West next weekend in California, I’ll have advanced copies available for sale.
This Fall, I’m offering my first annual Singing Weekend Immersion in Los Angeles entitled Sonic Yoga: Mantra, Raga, Kirtan, through LMU’s Yoga Studies program (it’s open to the public!). The investment is $195 for 10 hours of immersion over the weekend of Oct 22/23. I’ll also be offering this same weekend training in Boise, Idaho in November.
I’m excited to be offering a special Yoga class in Santa Monica, CA, together with yoga teacher Brent Kuecker, on Sept 16th at 8:30pm. This 1.5 hour class incorporates Yoga Asana, Meditation, and Chanting, nurtured by my music (harp, bamboo flutes and Indian singing).
As well, those of you in Southern California can catch me at LMU’s Yoga Day on Sept 17, a full day of free workshops with internationally renowned teachers. I’ll be teaching a free singing & mantra workshop that day.
