New from Shantala!

LIVE in love
A powerful experience of live kirtan in a 2-CD set, recorded in concert in Oregon. LIVE in love offers the live energy of chant, flowing from the sublime to the ecstatic. Shantala is joined by special guests Manose, Jami Sieber, Gina Sala, Joe Jencks, and Talia Toni Marcus.

A lush and deep musical journey where the poignant voice of the East Indian esraj intertwines with the majestic Celtic harp in a celestial soundspace - perfect music for meditation, yoga, bodywork, healing or simply being.
