WYNNE PARIS is a World Beat producer and Kirtan artist who has been at the forefront of the Yoga Music Genre for almost 20 years. Wynne left a successful rock and roll career to embrace yoga music after he 'jammed' with the hugging Saint Amma in 1995. In 1996, Wynne was invited to perform with HH the Dalai Lama in Washington DC's Constitution Hall. Since then he has toured and recorded with many of the Yoga's best loved artists. He recorded several CD's with the grandfather of American Kirtan, Krishna Das, contributing sarod, guitar and saz on the genre defining CD " Pilgrim Heart". Wynne has also recorded and performed with many other great kirtan artists, including Bhagavan Das, Dave Stringer, Guru Ganesha Singh, Girish, David Newman, etc.
In addition to supporting other Kirtan ( call and response chanting ) artists and keeping a busy tour schedule, Wynne has recorded 3 CD's of his own. His style of kirtan brings Americana and rock and roll into the mix, and his cd's have been graced by a number of legendary mainstream musicians -Rick Allen (Def Leppard), Badal Roy (Miles Davis), JT Thomas & Doug Derryberry (B Hornsby band), Mark Karan ( Ratdog) and Tony Levin ( Peter Gabriel, King Crimson ).
Wynne's favorite instrument is the Sarod the lovechild of a sitar and a banjo. He has been a student of this complex instrument for 15 years and is only now starting to sound 'pretty good'. When Wynne is not busy playing kirtan or recording, he spends his time working in Washington DC, doing development for Bonobo ape conservation and working with Peter Gabriel on the Interspecies Internet a new project dedicated to communication between species ( imagine and elephant jamming with an ape . )

DANA ALBERT KAPLAN , RYT, CLYL
Dana has been singing and laughing since she can remember, and practicing yoga fornot quite as long as that, but for a good 15 years. While completing her Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2009 with Edely Wallace, she was introduced to Laughter Yoga. Upon experiencing the sheer joy of deliberately laughing for no reason at all, she knew she wanted to become a Certified Laugher Yoga Leader to share this practice with others. Dana's first love is singing. It is her purest form of self-expression and healing. While she thoroughly enjoys performing in a Klezmer Band and in "The Smooth Vocal Duo of Diane & Dana", she has found a new home over the last several years singing Kirtan, primarily with Wynne Paris. Kirtan unifies her deepest passions togetherconnecting to the divine within, connecting with others, & expressing and sharing joy. This is yoga! Dana currently teaches Hatha Yoga and Laughter Yoga regularly at Harmony Yoga Studio and at The Jewish Community Center, both in Maitland, FL. For more information on Dana, please visit her website @ www.dropoffyoga.com

DAS is a multi-dimensional Time Traveler, Permanent Pilgrim, and Conscious Yogi from many previous lifetimes. In his current incarnation Just Visiting This Planet he is a composer of Yoga Meditation Music since 1973, a manufacturer of bamboo meditation flutes, a Kirtan performer and recording artist with 108 CD releases, as well as a cosmic poet and spiritual rap artist. He has resided as a sadhu in the primitive villages of holy shrines in rural India for many years, learning 5 languages in order to have direct access to the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Vedic culture. He has translated over forty rare Sanskrit works into English for the benefit of scholars and devotees around the world, and his works are even used by many gurus for their own edification and further studies into the esoteric teachings. His participation in Orlando Kirtan Festival will include various Bansuri flute meditations alongside featured performers. Das makes all his own flutes based on specs from ancient Sanskrit books that describe the exact models & configurations of Sri Krishna's flutes played in Vrindavan 5,000 years ago, a science of cosmic bamboo that seems to have become lost over the millennia...
RAYANANDA and the Wandering Sadhus have led devotional kirtan chanting for the past 4 years at yoga studios, churches, and spiritual centers along Florida's
east coast from Vero Beach to St. Augustine. They accompany the chants with harmonium, shruti, percussion, guitar, and bass guitar.Rayananda and Vicki, the band leaders, have been Bhakti Yoga practitioners for many years. They were introduced to kirtan through the holy bhajans of Amma, the Hugging Saint. Moved by the tenderness and nectar-sweet moods created by chanting the holy Name and realizing the power of mantras to purify and heal, they have embraced kirtan as their primary spiritual practice.The band's musical influences include Bhagavan Das, Dave Stringer, and the 60's-era chanting of poet Allen Ginsberg. They like the Beatles, too. Their kirtans are high-energy, heart-opening, bliss-soaked ecstatic happenings. For a schedule of events, visit www.meetup.com/kirtanbrevard or www.rayananda.com.
