PR9.NET September 13, 2004 - Los Angeles, CA - Revolutionizing the world of chants, recording artist and tabla magician Girish brings his funky style of stirring Sanskrit chants to the Body, Mind and Beyond Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Sunday September 19, 3pm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster and at the door.
Girish is the tabla player/percussionist for Rasa, Krishna Das, Dave Stringer, Wah!, Snatam Kaur, Thomas Barquee, Donna DeLory, and Shanti Shanti, to name a few. Now the rhythm of your favorite chants finds a voice as Girish sings his original compositions in the ancient language of Sanskrit. Elements of pop, Indian and American folk, and jazz merge to create a musical experience that is incredibly infectious and deeply moving.
Joining Girish at the Mind Body and Beyond Expo to offer the yoga of chanting and to perform songs from his new CD, Reveal, are Tony Bray on keyboard and horns, and Mark Gorman on bass guitar.
Reveal features a stellar lineup of musicians from the pop and world music genres, and some of the most amazing voices in chanting, including Donna Delory, CC White, and Wah!
As Yogi Times reports: "The thing is, you can give the CD to anyone, yogi or not, and they'll love the music. If they sing along, they'll bring some healing and devotion into their lives, whether they want to or not. Because, as Girish says, 'Sanskrit is a profound tool for spiritual awakening that can be accessed by everyone, regardless of religious affiliation.' "
Popular percussionist Girish is blasting through the defining boundaries of the chant music genre, bringing a fresh, exciting, and yet deeply spiritual interpretation that is sure to change the way that audiences and performers think of chant music. You may readily recognize the familiar sound of Girish's tabla playing, which has consistently graced popular chant recordings for the last decade. Now Girish is revolutionizing the world of chants with his funky, stirring style. On his new CD, Reveal, he intelligently incorporates pop, jazz, and folk nuances into ancient Sanskrit mantras. His voice is well trained through years as a Hindu Monk, and studying Sanskrit and chanting for hours a day, year after year.
