In 2005, New Orleans-based singer/songwriter/yoga teacher Sean Johnson founded the Wild Lotus Band as a post-hurricane Katrina philanthropic music project, raising funds across the country for relief from the devastation of the storm.
The theme of searching for grace and inspiration amidst challenge and destruction has permeated their music ever since. The ensemble - featuring Alvin Young on six string fretless bass and electric guitar with percussionist/vocalist Gwendolyn Colman - brings together ancient mantras from the yoga tradition, sacred chants from spiritual traditions across the globe, and roots, rock, gospel and world grooves. In 2007 they released their first album Calling The Spirits which caught the ears of pioneering Canadian record producer Terry McBride, founder of Nettwerk Records and Lilith Fair. McBride signed the band to Nettwerk for the release of their follow up album Devaloka. When Putumayo World Music founder Dan Storper heard Devaloka, he chose music off the record to be featured on Putumayo’s first compilation of music designed for yoga. Inclusion on three Putumayo albums has helped propel the band’s music to listeners across the globe. Their latest album Unity, a celebration of the universal threads shared across global spiritual traditions, debuted #1 on the iTunes World Music Chart and #3 on Billboard. They are a favorite at yoga and conscious music festivals around the world including The New Orleans Jazz Festival. <br>
