Rising Kirtan Artist Gaura Vani and his band As Kindred Spirits are making their Santa Barbara debut and celebrating the release of their stellar 2nd CD, "Ten Million Moons". At the age of six Gaura Vani left the US to study sacred music in a gurukula or temple school in the timeless town of Vrindavan, India. He learned ancient prayers in Sanskrit and Bengali and to sing and play ethnic instruments like the harmonium and mrdanga. Twenty five years later he continues to share the magic he received and performs extensively with his kirtan ensemble, As Kindred Spirits, throughout the world from Europe and Asia, to the Americas.
Gaura Vani and As Kindred Spirits are simply the most wonderful kirtan band in the Western world. Listen, sing and be transported." - Jai Uttal
"Gaura Vani and Kindred Spirits is bringing the ecstatic kirtan traditions of Bhakti yoga to America with full loving force. From Burning Man, to yoga studios, to chanting for change in Washington DC, Gaura Vani is a sacred activist and artist leading the way. Recommended with all my heart." -Shiva Rea
