Full Description

Girish is one of our favorite yoga musicians and we play his music in our classes all the time. Girish sings traditional Sanskrit mantras with a modern, funky, yet deeply devotional twist. He inspires the audiences at his concerts to participate by singing and dancing. In the live music and yoga class, he invites students 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.

Girish is a singer, songwriter, session tabla player, producer, and teacher of tantric yoga philosophy who’s life journey has been marked by a series of profound transformations. He has gone from aspiring jazz drummer to renunciant Hindu monk to first call tabla guru for the likes of Krishna Das to solo mantra troubadour, and he’s not done yet. His widely acclaimed seven previous releases and tours popularized his original music in yoga studios, churches, and music festivals all over the world.
