Description

Experience the Indian musical traditions of Kirtan and Raga in one ecstatic evening. A celebration of life, community, and the Divine, through call-and-response singing and contemplative raga meditations. Be uplifted and inspired, centered and soothed... Sheela Bringi sings and plays the harp, harmonium and bansuri (Indian classical bamboo flute). Joining her will be tabla artist Nabin Shrestha, bass player Brent Kuecker, and instrumentalist Noah R. Wilson. Students in Sheela’s "Indian Devotional & Raga Singing" class at Naropa University will support on response vocals and tamboura (4-string drone instrument).

"...a captivating synthesis of East and West with Sheela’s exceptional voice soaring above all else. Sublime!" - Light of Consciousness Magazine

Her lush Indian vocals, soaring bansuri flute and harp have graced 40+ new age and world records, including the Grammy-nominated "Bhakti Without Borders". She has released two albums as a solo artist ("Shakti Sutra" and "Incantations"), and her work to bridge the musical worlds of India and America has been profiled by NBC News, NPR, Public Radio International, Yoga Journal, and others. Sheela has extensive training in North Indian classical, devotional and Western musical traditions, and past teachers include Indian maestros Pt. G.S. Sachdev and Ust. Aashish Khan, and Western contemporary greats such as Cecil Taylor and Meredith Monk. She currently studies Hindustani voice with Sri Subhashish Mukhopadyay (a topmost exponent of the Kotali Gharana, a lineage of North Indian music).
