About our special guest Vaiyasaki

Vaiyasaki is a much sought-after, internationally recognised, premier Mantra expert, conducting workshops, doing concerts, and leading yoga festivals and retreats worldwide. Sharing his heart through music and chanting is the basis of his life. He has delighted audiences and taught Bhakti-yoga (Kirtan is a principle practice of Bhakti Yoga) in 64 countries with people from all walks of life and cultures, and performs his music with a mission to uplift the consciousness of the planet. His considerable knowledge of the vast repertoire of Indian kirtans has provided the foundation for a new generation of artists, in the flourishing genre of music for yoga and mantra meditation.

"Few chant leaders of today have the vocal range and flexibility of Vaiyasaki. A kirtan extraordinaire, Vaiyasaki’s music evokes the ancient and timeless experience of chanting and carries you to the soul of India. With a powerful combination of classical vocals, traditional instrumentation, and bhav (devotion), Vaiyasaki delivers an unmistakable presence to his music. In short, his bhajans and kirtan capture the mind and heart."
-Ragani, founder of the International Kirtan Foundation
