Pic above is me and my friend Tamina singing Kirtan at Prana Veda Yoga Retreat in Bali.
I am a kirtan musician and a singer songwriter producing my own original songs.
Thanks to the inspiration from my older brother and support from my parents, I started studying music at age 7 (classical piano and flute) and I went through the traditional AMEB exam system in Australia, until Grade 8 in flute and Grade 6 in piano. I am now, almost 40 years later – a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, piano, harmonium, flute and percussion. My singing is heart and soul felt and self-taught.
Having participated for many years in kirtan circles in Australia, Spain, Bali, Thailand and India, I now offer my own kirtans, sharing my original mantra style songs, accompanied by guitar or harmonium.
The You-Ni-Verse Album
The You-Ni-Verse album is a six song EP released in January 2021 on Saraswati Day (Saraswati is the Goddess of art and music, education and wisdom, and the last song on the EP is in homage to Saraswati). The songs are a mix of electronic dance style and kirtan style mantra songs, designed to facilitate healing and bring you into alignment with your higher self.
All the songs are originals, written and recorded in my home studio in Bali in 2015 and 2020, and produced by myself, with assistance from Blastique, AKA Reuben Samuels, founder of Mile High Sounds in Kuala Lumpur.
Below is the first song on the album, ‘L’Univers’. The video was made on the beach in Koh Phangan in early 2020. And also an acoustic version of another song, ‘Breathe in my Sunshine’, written and recorded in Bali in 2020.that
