Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda are Oregon based musical artists in the genre of mantra music. Their music is a combination of kirtan (call and response singing), bhajan (devotional hymns) and original singer/song writer compositions in the languages of English, Sanskrit and Gurbani. Alternating guitar, harmonium, keyboard, bansuri flutes and vocal weaving, they create a profound healing and balanced sound current (Naad) brimming with bhakti (devotion). In just over 5 years together, they have released 8 albums on Sounds True, Spirit Voyage and independently. They tour nationally and internationally holding their own events and retreats. In addition, they perform and teach at festivals and regularly offer Kirtronica at ecstatic dances. They have been pioneers in bringing music and conscious businesses together, especially on their USA west coast tours. Their sponsors this year include Coconut Bliss, Jem Organics, Organic India and Medicinal Foods.
Kirtronica (Mantra Dance)
‘Kirtronica’ is a term for a new genre of music that is currently being established in the yoga world which is electronic dance music combined with live Sanskrit/Indian chanting and singing over it. In the current duo format, Jaya Lakshmi sings live while Ananda runs Ableton Live. They lead the audience through an ecstatic dance journey that awakens their shakti, inspiring devotional trance states and deepening their connection with the divine.
