Event Description: A much sought-after, internationally recognised, premier Kirtan expert, one of the early pioneers of Mantra Music in the West, Vaiyasaki, is coming to Edinburgh!
He has delighted audiences and taught Bhakti-yoga (Kirtan is one of the most important practices of Bhakti Yoga) in 64 countries with people from all walks of life and cultures, conducting workshops, doing concerts, and leading yoga festivals and retreats. Sharing his heart through music and chanting is the basis of his life. He performs his music with a mission to uplift the consciousness of the planet. His considerable knowledge of the vast repertoire of Indian bhajans and kirtans has provided the foundation for a new generation of artists, in the flourishing genre of music for yoga and mantra meditation.
"Few chant leaders of today have the vocal range and flexibility of Vaiyasaki. A kirtan extraordinaire, Vaiyasaki’s music evokes the ancient and timeless experience of chanting and carries you to soul of India. With a powerful combination of classical vocals, traditional instrumentation, and bhav (devotion), Vaiyasaki delivers an unmistakable presence to his music. In short, his bhajans and kirtan capture the mind and heart."
-Ragani, founder of the International Kirtan Foundation.
