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 Remixed (Mondolaya, December 2011) and Yoga Music Union (Mondolaya, September 2011). His widely acclaimed Diamonds in the Sun (Mondolaya, April 2010), Yoga Vision (Mondolaya, January 2008),  Shiva Machine (Spirit Voyage, October  2005) and Reveal (Mondolaya, May 2004) cds, dvds, and tours popularized his original music in yoga studios, churches, and music festivals all over the world.
