Need a gift for a gifted musician?
A student of the flow. A student of the ocean, mountains, rivers, and forests. A wandering yogi. A bliss bunny. An artist in the mediums of movement and sound, consciousness and energy. Where the river goes is where I flow. Where the path leads is where I am needed. When the work is finished, I turn to the master for instruction and bow humbly to the mystery, continually. Aum.
I've been fortunate to collaborate with many auspicious musicians and teachers in the American yoga community. In yoga classes at festivals, I've performed for the "who's who" of action-packed live-music asana teachers including Shiva Rea, Janet Stone, Micheline Berry, Sara Ivanhoe, Govindas, Susan Sterling, and Faith Hunter. In musical exploits and kirtans, I've supported Shaman's Dream, DJ Drez, Joey Lugassy, David Newman, and Karnamrita Dasi. I've also had the pleasure of opening for Shimshai, Hamsa Lila, Donna Delory, Girish, and Tierro of Kan'nal.
I give enormous gratitude to my teachers along the way, including Ty Burhoe (tabla), Prema Mayi (mridanga), Shiva Rea (bhav and fire), and Marilyn Macfarland (classical piano). Thank you, beautiful people, beautiful world, beautiful life. I honor you.
I also spin vinyl under the name DJ Narayan. My DJ soundcloud is here: https://soundcloud.com/djnarayan108
