Govindas and Radha are California-based bhakti yogis, kirtan singers, and as the couple's spiritual names suggest - "servants of the divine". They are the founders and directors of Bhakti Yoga Shala in Santa Monica, California. This commitment to love, service and devotion is the essence which is reflected and transmitted through their teachings and music. Through the sacred practice of Kirtan, repetitiously chanting the names of God/Goddess from ancient India, they will guide you on a musical meditation and yogic chanting adventure deep into the essence of Bhakti---the yoga of the Heart, the yoga of Love...
Through the grace of their teachers, they have uniquely melded ancient Indian mantras with western melodies, yet still playing traditional Indian instruments. Their music has been described as a trance inducing mandala, where the eyes close, voices and hearts open, and meditation, art, and prayer merge together as One. Govindas and Radha's 2 CDs "Endless Surrender Kirtan Experience" and "Waves of Love" and "Kirtan Vibrations." They lead kirtan concerts, bhakti yoga with live music classes and workshops, and transformative retreats throughout the world.
