Singer and songwriter Donna De Lory has always followed divergent musical roads. The petite, vivacious brunette with the mighty voice happily dallied in the mainstream as Madonna's sassy tour sidekick for over a decade, but her own parallel journey as a solo artist follows a more eclectic muse. A devoted student of yoga and spiritual teachings, De Lory's lushly conceived solo albums, like her 2009 ecstatic groove Sanctuary, are not only inspired by Western pop, but Indian devotional music, Sanskrit mantras, Northern African grooves, psychedelic arrangements, and dance beats. Donna blends her rich spiritual practice, sonic collages and diverse musical inspirations into a unique, world music-meets-kirtan style that's been called "the perfect combination of earth Mama and fairy child, with a voice that oscillates between the passionate laments of Janis Joplin and the crystal clarity of Enya."

Steve Ross has practiced various styles of yoga for his entire adult life and has been an instructor for over twenty years. He has explored the physical aspects of yoga as well as the philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga. He spent four years as a monk in the Vedic tradition, and since that time, he has ceaselessly sought out and reveled in the presence of some of the most notable masters of our time  in India and elsewhere. He is honored to have the opportunity to share his knowledge and experience with other spiritual seekers.

Author of Happy Yoga, Steve combines upbeat, inspirational music with a relaxed, easy spirituality that make his classes at Maha Yoga some of the most popular in Los Angeles. His events are ecstatic and his retreats are well known to produce a blissful state of being.

Girish, an accomplished musician of many genres, former monk infused in spiritual practice, loving wordsmith linking lyrics and rhythm in a blissful musical event, will be performing live at Inner Light Center for a sacred music concert of call and response chanting and dancing.

Girish sings traditional Sanskrit mantras with a modern, funky, yet deeply devotional twist. Accompanied by his amazing band, Girish invites his audience at his concert to participate by singing along, call and response chanting, and dancing. Girish invites students in the live music and yoga class to let go and let their yoga flow through the beats and rhythms of his soul stirring tunes.

"Possessing a deeply soothing, almost sensual voice Girish sings Sanskrit with palpable devotion and tenderness" ~ Jeremy Lehrer, Yoga Journal

Girish is currently on tour to support his new album (Mondolaya, March 2014) His widely acclaimed seven previous releases and tours popularized his original music in yoga studios, churches, and music festivals all over the world. Hear his music at
