From Bhakti Fest to The New Orleans Jazz Festival, Sean Johnson And The Wild Lotus Band have struck peoples' hearts with their soulful, imaginative, and dynamic music that merges mantras, rock, gospel, and world grooves. They are a favorite headliner at music and yoga festivals nationwide.
Tonight's kirtan experience will draw from their new release Unity, a collection of ten soul-stirring songs that reveal the band is more at home than ever with interpreting and expressing spiritual mantra music through the guts and authenticity of their own American roots. The album shot up to the top of the iTunes World Music Charts upon it's release.
Sing, dance and travel on a revelatory journey through a myriad of sounds, flavors, and languages including belly dance rhythms, Motown-inspired grooves, back porch guitar stomp, gospel chorus, and passionately sung verses from Rumi, The Radiance Sutras, and mantric chants from the yoga and other spiritual traditions. Their music has appeared on the Putumayo World Music, Nettwerk Records, Sounds True, and White Swan labels.
Yoga Journal has praised the band: "A joy to listen to whether you're a yogi, or anyone who appreciates wildly creative music."
The band includes Sean on vocals and harmonium; vocalist and percussionist Gwendolyn Colman; and Alvin Young on fretless bass and guitar. You can download their new hit album Devaloka on I-Tunes and Amazon.
