TESTIMONIALS

“Last night’s kirtan [with Lee Mirabai Harrington] was absolutely celestial. When chanting to the Divine takes me to that place where I can no longer tell whose voice is whose, including the sounds coming out of this mouth, when the boundaries are dissolved because the Shakti is flaming, THAT for me is the heart and soul, the pure rasa of kirtan. Then Lee’s layering of her beautiful improvs on the top was like sprinkling angel dust over us. Thank you! ~ Uma Valerie Carruthers, writer, Reiki master, kirtan addict, Deland FL

White and the “Shiva­-esque” guitar licks of Steve Postell. Add the deep tones and bowls of sound healer Philippe Garnier to the mix, and we have a powerful track indeed, designed to invoke the transformative qualities of Shiva. The sweet, meditative lullaby track “Jai Ma” also features the healing tones of Philippe’s singing bowls, tuning forks, windchimes, plus the lovely voice of the kirtan scene’s newest rising star, Radharani. Be prepared to sail away on the blissful sound currents of the Divine Mother. “Govinda Hare,”­­ is an all­-star tribute to the beloved teacher Shyamdas, with Daniel Paul on table and harmonica, Adam Bauer on bass and vocals, John McDowell on keyboards, and C.C. White singing response. You’ll even hear Shyamdas himself in the mix. And if you’ve ever felt like dancing like Nataraj, check out the fun, energetic and cleansing track “Shiva Shakti (Lord of the Disco Dance),” featuring the vocals of Calia Marshall and Helen Tocci of Kirtan Soul Revival, plus soul singers Kim Lesley and John James. Closing the album is the protective Gurbhani mantra “Aad Gurey Nameh,” based on a melody by Yogi Bhajan himself.  You’ll also enjoy the remixes of the three Buddhist tracks from the EP “INTO THE BEYOND” which feature Lamas Karma Drodhul and Karma Thendup of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Monastery.  May all beings benefit!

Untitled-1INTO THE BEYOND: Modern Renditions of Ancient Buddhist Mantras

Dedicated to His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa and featuring Lamas Karma Drodhul and Karma Thendup from Karma Triyana Dharmachakra monastery, this special limited­-edition EP from kirtan artist Lee Mirabai Harrington delivers high­-spirited renditions of ancient Tibetan Buddhist mantras. Known for her rich, powerful and deeply healing voice, Lee sings with devotion, Dharma and love. Each track has a distinctly different feel, ranging from the foot-tapping groove of “Om Mani Peme Hum (Chenrezig’s Jam)” to the soaring, jubilant vocals of “Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Soha (Beyond the Beyond)” which features a gospel group and guest artists Gaura Vani (renowned for his voice and his bhav in the Bhakti circuit) plus John James and Keith Fluitt (two amazing gospel musicians who have sung backup singers for, among others, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and Celine Dion). The epic three­-part song “Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha (Homage to Green Tara)” is a journey onto itself, with hypnotic instrumentation, a lush female choir, and the ethereal vocals of Tibetan artist Drukmo Gyal Dakini, who sings the “21 Praises to Tara” in Part II of this track. “Homage to Green Tara” is a sonic landscape of healing and transformation—you’ll emerge from the vibrations of the 21 Emanations of Tara feeling fortified and cleansed. Contributing musicians include the Grammy­-award winners Steve Gorn (flute, soprano sax), John McDowell (piano, African drums) Hans Christian (cello and sarangi) and Anthony Molina. Perfect for yoga classes, foot-­tapping mantra recitation practice, heart expansion, and meditation. Playing these mantras in the background will clear your environment of any congested energies. Chanting them will help purify karma, dissipate kleshas, invoke protective and healing energies, and lead you to Perfect Wisdom! (Release Date: 4/18/15)
