Bhavapalooza Presents Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda

Bhavapalooza is thrilled to present the spectacular offerings of Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda!  Join us in Boulder for this uplifting and joyful evening of Kirtan chanting with these heart centered musicians. 

Description: Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda are Oregon based musical artists in the genre of mantra music. They offer a combination of kirtan (call and response singing), bhajan (devotional hymns) and original singer/song writer compositions in the languages of English, Sanskrit and Gurbani. Alternating guitar, harmonium, keyboard, bansuri flutes and vocal weaving, they create a profound healing and balanced sound current (Naad) brimming with bhakti (devotion).


Jaya Lakshmi has been sharing her beautiful kirtans and bhajans for over 20 years. Steeped in the Gaudiya Vaishnav tradition (Radha Krishna bhakti path), she recorded her first four solo albums and toured mostly the west coast from 2000-2010. In 2010, a romance and musical merging unfolded with Ananda Yogiji.

Ananda has been a dedicated practitioner and teacher of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan for over 9 years. He also completed and taught at numerous holistic yoga and leadership immersions at the Dharmalaya. (Dharmalaya is a holistic yoga, permaculture and meditation center in Eugene, Oregon, that is part of Ananda Seva.) In addition to his BA in international and sustainable business, he has a minor in East Asian Religions and studied yogic philosophy at the University of Oregon.

In coming together with Jaya Lakshmi, their love, music and sadhanas (spiritual practices) spiraled together. Bridging not only the two traditions, they incorporated many other facets in the great wisdom and bhakti traditions of the Vedas. Included in their influences have been the great hugging saint Amma, Paramahansa Yogananda, the Dalai Lama and many more.

In just over 5 years together, they have released 7 albums on Sounds True, Spirit Voyage and independently. They tour nationally and internationally holding their own events and retreats. They have been pioneers in bringing music and conscious businesses together, especially on their USA west coast tours. Their sponsors this year include Coconut Bliss, Jem Organics, and Organic India.
