about

It all started with a harmonium.
Three years ago we added the harmonium to our band and began to play kirtan, sacred hindu chant music, to honor the instrument's history.
The music had a profound effect on us and our audience.

We wanted to learn more about the ancient songs we were singing so we studied yoga and meditation at an ashram in Virgina called, Yogaville.
www.yogaville.org

Our next journey was to India. We spent a month living in the city of Varanasi, which was once called "Kashi" or "City of Light".
While there we recorded music and chants from the streets, which we have incorporated into this album.
We also volunteered at our friend Ravi's music and arts school, which strives to help children rise out of poverty through music and education.
100% of online sales will go to this school

Because this is sacred music we want as many people as possible to benefit from this album.

Track Name: Holy River
Holy river take me back in time
before the mud, it piled up.
Wind my body tie it up in silk
among the ash and sandalwood

Oh Sadhu you do nothing
but prepare the way
my soul is just a paste you place upon your head
Breathe deeply now a thousand times
the sun will rise before you die
but you already know that you are there

Holy river lap against the stone
it's painted crimson painted gold
Lay the wood to dry upon the rock
The fire burns.
It never stops

Hazy mornings and the misty mountains
far north of here another day.
Men on boats they travel back and forth
and with their calloused hands
they pray and pray

Holy river take me back in time
before the fire became the light.
Wrap me in your quiet waterside.
You are one breath
and so am I
