Shalom Tour with Shantala & MIkey Pauker
Benjy and Heather Wertheimer have been leading kirtan (sacred chanting) worldwide
since 2001 as the duo Shantala. They are known for their special gift of bringing the
audience into a vast and loving experience through their unique blend of exquisite
voices with instruments of India and the West. Together they create music with beauty,
passion, and reverence. Heather and Benjy have released five beautiful and well-loved
albums of sacred chant music since 2003, including Living Waters, Jaya, LIVE in
love, Sri, and The Love Window.
Shantala has performed and recorded internationally with such sacred music luminaries
as Krishna Das, Deva Premal & Miten, and Jai Uttal. They were named as one of the
top Kirtan Wallahs to Watch by Yoga + Joyful Living Magazine. Kirtan is a celebration
of spirit through the chanting of sacred names, carrying the audience into a state of
heightened awareness, bliss, and devotion. The audience is invited to participate fully
through call-and-response chanting, dance, and meditation.
Mikey Pauker is a folk/world artist from Berkeley, California. His new album, ASCENSION, is an invitation to listen to the call of our inner wilderness and to greet our darkness with understanding and an open heart. It was recorded in raw, live instrumental sessions a departure from Mikeys more electronic past recordings under the guidance of Grammy-nominated producer Warren Huart (The Fray, Trevor Hall, Matisyahu). With songs like Say Yes and I AM, listeners are elevated with catchy melodic hooks and reggae/rock beats. Inspired by the recent California wildfires and hurricanes that have swept Texas and Florida this past season, Believe reminds us that these tragedies are opportunities to rebalance our relationship with our planet and the communities we surround ourselves with.
