Danceable devotional Sanskrit mantras set to original modern music with some upbeat, silly, funny English songs.
NOTES
I’m told these mantras have been chanted for centuries
by millions. I don’t know, I wasn’t there. :-)
The music to which they’re set herein is composed,

Story

Hanuman Ji and the Goddess's is two tracks in one. They wanted to be joined and they didn't want to wait till I got the rest of the "Muse" cd done. I didn't know why at first but over the course of several months one thing came clear.

Hanuman and the Mother Goddesses offer a way home. Hanuman, by rejoining Sita and Ram, your desire to connect to divinity, and divinity itself, respectively.

And the Mother... well that's Ma for you. She offers sanctuary, nurturing, love and total acceptance.

Camille Lila Archer and Grace Ballenger sing with me on this.

That's Katrina Lilly singing with me. Sooo nice to work with someone who can focus like a laser and go for a vision with trust and love.

Deeply inspired by the actions of friends (and other friends I have yet to meet) at Standing Rock North Carolina this song got squeezed out of me. The protests to halt the Dakota Access Pipe Line (DAPL) were and are heroic. More of those types of actions may be necessary in months and years to come. We stand solidly with their cause. Aho Mitakuye Oyasin

Inspired by my tours with Dave Stringer, this piece turns out to be one of the most powerful I offer at all of my kirtans.  

So, I had to (finally) get it recorded because I hate saying “Sorry I haven’t recorded that one yet” 

Enjoy!

So much to say and no words come. Guess I just stopped making sense.

Wow! Sorta can't believe I even took it on to record this. I mean I still have to read the sheet... it's so long and still a foreign language for me. But I love the music.
