about

"New American Kirtan" weaves incredibly delicate group choral harmonies along with english chants to envelop the participant in healing mantra sound. Each song is designed to work on a different part of the heart / energy system, and they are the maps for live group singing engagements that I am continuing to produce in the form of singing circles, performances and workshops.

Track Name: Oh Divine Gardener
Oh Divine Gardener,
Till the wild soil of my mind
With the plow of thy wisdom
Help me see there's a place for me in all of this.

Lady Blossom, Mother Moon,
Sister Stars, Guardian Sun,
All shall join us in our joyous ever new rhythmic dance of eternity
In cadence with the soul-melting melody of the music of the spheres

Wha oh oh oh,
I shall drink with thee;
I shall dance with thee;

We're up to our ears
In the joy of thy Love
You always appear
And it's never enough

Oh Divine Gardener,
Till the wild soil of my mind
With the plow of thy wisdom
Help me see there's a place for me in all of this.

May all that is blessed be
May all that is needed arise

We'll dance in thy presence as one,
With our feet on the ground, and our eye's to the sky

Track Name: The Beauty You Love
Let the beauty you love be what you do.
Let the beauty you love be what you do.
Let the beauty you love be what you do.
Let the beauty you love be what you do.

You are a sail, filled with wind (whoa oh...)
You are a blank page, pen in hand, where it all begins (whoa oh...)
You are the sky that turns, from day to night (whoa oh...)
You are a sweet symphony in the morning light (whoa oh...)

Om gum ganapataye namaha,
Om gum ganapataye namaha,
Om gum ganapataye namaha,
Om gum ganapataye namaha.

You are the leaves that turn, year after year (whoa oh...)
You are the kiss of strength, after every tear (whoa oh...)
Let each day age, whoa oh, like a glass of wine (whoa oh...)
Just have faith, your right on time (whoa oh...)

Let the beauty you love be what you do.
Let the beauty you love be what you do.
Let the beauty you love be what you do.
Let the beauty you love be what you do.
Track Name: Om Shrim Ganesha
Sometimes life is like an ocean,
Upon it's waves I flow and toss,
Where home is like a distant memory,
So hopeless I am lost.

A moment like that calls me to open,
A power from deep inside,
And though the trials run high stakes and losses,
A path to solid ground I shall find.

Om shrim ganesha, sharanam.
Om shrim ganesha, sharanam.

Like a bird I shall take flight,
Spread my wings to the wind,
I'll follow my nose, I'll find true north,
In that direction I'll fly in.

And MY VOICE will let loose a fierce cry,
All my live, leading to this,
Never no longer shall we wander,
We've arrived at our true home in bliss.

Om shrim ganesha, sharanam.
Om shrim ganesha, sharanam.
Om shrim ganesha, sharanam.
Om shrim ganesha, sharanam.

So go, sail upon your waters,
See all you have done.
One day, we'll join as sons and daughters,
Our voices joined as one.

And our voice will let loose a fierce cry,
All our lives, leading to this,
Never no longer shall we wander,
We've arrived at our true home in bliss.

Om shrim ganesha, sharanam.
Om shrim ganesha, sharanam.
Om shrim ganesha, sharanam.
Om shrim ganesha, sharanam.
