Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda are Oregon based musical artists in the genre of mantra music. They offer kirtan, healing mantra music and Kirtronica (kirtan and electronica fusion).
Their music is a combination of kirtan (call and response singing), bhajan (devotional hymns) and original singer/song writer compositions in the languages of English, Sanskrit and Gurbani. Alternating guitar, harmonium, keyboard, bansuri flutes and vocal weaving, they create a profound healing and balanced sound current (Naad) brimming with bhakti (devotion). They are known for their powerful blend of modern and ancient soundscapes that touches the heart and invokes a meditative and connected state. Since their coming together in 2010, they have released 4 albums on Sounds True as well as 8 independently. They tour nationally and internationally holding their own events and retreats. Ananda Yogiji just released his first solo studio album, Flower of Life. Check it out!
