About the event

MIRA DEVI brings her magic to the kirtan this week!

About Mira Devi:

Mira Devi's music can best be described as east west folk for the heart. Born and raised in Long Island, her early musical influences included Harry Chapin, John Denver, The Band, and Neil Young. In the early 1990's she moved to Boulder,  and spent years performing at ski areas and local  coffee house venues.  Part kirtan artist, part singer/songwriter, part storyteller, her music speaks to the heart and draws listeners in. Accompanied by her ever faithful 1947 Martin, her arrangements are lush and rhythmic, working equally well solo or in full band mode with danceable, detoxifying grooves. Her songs are uplifting and life-affirming yet leave room for the shadowy sometimes fierce lessons of embodiment. A decade spent at Shoshoni, an ashram outside of Nederland, was a very special chapter of her life and significantly influenced her musical direction. It was a time of letting go of outer musical goals and diving into a life of meditation and service.    She dove into the study of Yoga and Ayurveda, which continue to inspire her path as a musician and bodyworker.  Most significantly, she was introduced to the myriad forms of the Divine.  She fell in love with kirtan, the practice of chanting mantras of the gods and goddesses.  A founding member of the ashram band Shiva's Garden,  Mira wrote many chants while at Shoshoni, and recorded several CDs while living there, including Under the Shiva Moon.  Eastern mysticism informs her life and her music to this day.  Mira cites her current musical influences as Shawn Colvin, Gregory Alan Isakov, Michael Hedges, and Trevor Hall.  Her favorite Hindu deity? Durga Ma. She is a strong warrior Goddess who rides upon a lion, wields many weapons, and enjoys a bit of wine before heading to the battlefield to face many demons.  She always wins.

Come sing kirtan with us Sunday Night Live!

Every week we gather to sing the Sanskrit names of divine awareness, dance our hearts open, and sing with a community that communes with the love that is at the core of our being. You are the choir, so join us and we will inspire each other into the flow state of loving awareness. We chant sacred Sanskrit mantras for the benefit of all beings. Come connect with our sweet community, bring a snack to be transformed into prasad, and help us put out some good vibes!
