Event Description

Friday, May 10th at the StarHouse in Boulder, CO.

Mike Cohen and the Shakti Groove are excited to return to the beautiful StarHouse for an evening of sacred chant.  Mike, Dawnia and Michele will blend masculine and feminine energies as they share original chants from their 4 full albums and 2 EP’s. These accessible chants are grounded in the Sanskrit, Kundalini Yoga and Mashup (Mantra + English) lineages, blending Shakti (Divine Energy) and Groove (funky music). Ken and Bill provide the groove, while James adds hauntingly beautiful cello lines throughout. You are the choir, and are invited to chant, harmonize, clap and dance. Together we will drop into an exquisite flow state of loving awareness. 

Tickets $25 in advance, $30 at the door. Kids 12 and under invited to join for FREE.

The Shakti Groove features:

  • Mike Cohen - harmonium and vocals

  • Dawnia Dresser, Michele Heaphy - vocals

  • James Hoskins - cello/percussion

  • Bill McCrossen - bass

  • Ken Matarazzo & David Hinojosa - percussion

Formed in 2017, the Shakti Groove plays music from Mike Cohen's 4 full length Kirtan albums, Dawnia Dresser's Kirtan EP, and Michele Heaphy's singles. They have shared sacred chant across Colorado as well as Telluride Yoga Festival, Sedona Yoga Festival and Bhakti Fest. Mike is the founder of Kirtan Leader Institute, where many of these talented musicians also serve as teachers. More at
