Wah! leads kirtan and shares mantras, stories and meditation. Wah! will be joined by Jahnavi Harrison on vocals and violin.
A multi-dimensional live vibration experience.
You will leave transformed.
The first female to bring kirtan music (call-and-response chanting performed in India’s devotional traditions) to the West in the 1990’s, Wah! has been playing bass guitar with her wildly joyful rock band at yoga festivals and centers around the U.S. since 1997. She has also consistently offered music and albums to the therapeutic market; her Savasana CDs have sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.
A few years ago Wah! took time to sit with people – just sitting, and singing, toning, and leading simple meditative exercises. This, combined with many years leading yoga and creating relaxation music led to healing workshops, healing retreats and the Healing Concert.
Her new book, Healing: A Vibrational Exchange introduces audiences to the concepts behind her music, focusing on ways you can create more space and healing in your life. Her lectures have been welcomed at Princeton University, Loyola Marymount University and at EXPOs and conferences around the country. Her workshops help people develop tools for self-healing and communication.
She has performed at Fiske Planetarium, Franklin Institute, South Florida Museum’s Bishop Planetarium, Omega Institute, Globe Sound Healing Conference, NJ State Museum in Trenton, Hoyt Sherman Place, and Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. In concerts, festivals, lectures and workshops, Wah! uses her deep understanding of music and healing to create profound and transformative events.
