Think ancient incantations, swampy blues, angelic melodies, dark dancing rhythms, and lush harmonies.

South Indian American harpist/singer Sheela Bringi is best known in Boulder for her unique voice as a mantra music artist and her work with PremaSoul, a majestic combination of harp, trumpet, and vocal harmonies. Now, she’s bringing back PremaSoul’s co-founder, Georgia-bred songwriter/trumpeter Clinton Patterson (also the producer of her recent release Incantations). Coming to you from Los Angeles, this promises to be a rare evening of unforgettable music at Shine.

Praise for Incantations (Black Swan Sounds; Feb 2014):
“What do you get when you cross British-Tamil pop, avant-garde piano and ancient Vedic chanting? Sheela Bringi.” –Public Radio International’s ‘The World’

“Indian music expands to accommodate the spirit and whatever human circumstances enclose it…Hip-hop, Balkan music and the blues all meld within grooves that only gain intensity from the reformulations Bringi and her collaborators explore…This music isn’t just for your yoga practice.” –National Public Radio “…It succeeds because she is respectful of the original material and is an excellent musician, matching her cool, clear vocals against her skills on the harp, harmonium and bansuri bamboo flute…” (Four Stars) -The Guardian

“…a thought-provoking release where sparks fly with a real feeling for Hindu divinity” (Five Stars) -fRoots Magazine
