The GuruGanesha Band

GuruGanesha Band

The GuruGanesha Band is the latest project from the mind, heart and guitarof world devotional music pioneer GuruGanesha Singh. Renowned for hiswork with sublime vocalists like Snatam Kaur, Nirinjan Kaur and Tina Malia,GuruGanesha steps into the limelight with his latest musical venture, a multitalentedensemble culled from the A-list of players and singers on today'srapidly-expanding kirtan/chant/yoga music scene.

Long noted for the effortless grace and mellifluous lyricism of his acousticguitar work, GuruGanesha has turned his talents to his first love, theelectric guitar, to ignite the incandescent sound of the GuruGanesha Band.With shimmering, glassy tonalities and evocative textures, he takes thevast sonic potential of modern guitar electronics to a new and blissfulplace. Accompanying him on this musical journey are master cellist/multiinstrumentalistHans Christian (RASA, Krishna Das, Robbie Robertson, HarryManx, Jai Uttal and Donna De Lory), beguiling and unforgettable newcomerPaloma Devi on vocals, Spirit Voyage recording artist/ kundalini yoga teacherSat Kartar Singh on acoustic guitar, and kundalini bass guitar magicianGurusangat Singh (recording artist and producer of the popular MiracleMantra Series), and world music multi-percussionist Tripp Dudley on drumkit, tabla, and cajon.

"This is a project that I've had in my heart for many years," says GuruGanesha."The idea behind the GuruGanesha Band is to bring to the world music scenea group that can musically hold its own with the great guitar bands of alltime, but instead of conventional lyrics, singing mantras and divine poetryto transport audiences to a profoundly beautiful and transcendent place. Allof the spiritual and musical work I've done for the past 39 years has beenpreparing me for this."

GuruGanesha describes the GGB sound as "a unique blend of kirtan, raga,rock, and deeply meditative folk music. I will primarily be playing electricguitar and I've hand-picked the musicians not only for their musical virtuositybut also for their ability to channel the spiritual energy that the band will beserving. The vocals will be a group effort with plenty of rich two and three partharmonies though Paloma Devi will regularly step out and blow people awaywith her amazing vocal improvisations. The audience will be encouraged tofully participate, whether it be singing along, dancing or just meditating deeplyon the music." World devotional music pioneer, Spirit Voyage Records founder, distinctive guitar stylist, songwriter, singer, producer, entrepreneur, accomplished yogi and lifelong spiritual practitioner, GuruGanesha is a man of many talents. His most recent project is the GuruGanesha Band, an adventurous ensemble of mantra music all-stars born of GuruGanesha's longstanding wish to combine the profound spirituality of mantra music with the visceral excitement of a great guitar-driven band. The GuruGanesha Band's debut album A Thousand Suns takes world devotional music to visionary new realms of musical innovation with an inspiring fusion of kirtan, rock, raga, folk, blues and Latin sounds that has left audiences from coast to coast dripping with bliss and ecstatic joy.

GuruGanesha Singh

 

The GuruGanesha Band is just one of many high points in a career that has spanned several decades, bringing joy and inspiration to music lovers all around the world. GuruGanesha's shimmering, incandescent guitar work and creative vision were instrumental in launching the career of Snatam Kaur, with whom he has recorded and performed extensively. His rich career path has also embraced collaborations with Seal, Tina Malia, Nirinjan Kaur, Thomas Barquee and Jai Jagdeesh. The deep catalog of GuruGanesha's solo recordings includes A Game of Chants, Pure Ganesh, Grateful Ganesh and his most recent CD, Kundalini Surjhee.

GuruGanesha is one of those rare individuals who combine the heart and soul of an artist with the clear, quick mind of a businessman and the easygoing warmth of a born raconteur. His immense contribution to the yoga and conscious music movement is one of the genre's most radiant jewels.

  • I think GuruGanesha music is very enjoyable. I like it all esp the one with a Middle Eastern music in the background. I wish to know the words for song 2, Kundalini Surjhee...can it be sent to me on facebook, pls.

    -- Gurwant Kaur
  • I've been fortunate to see GuruGanesha perform live in Vancouver three times now, and every time he blows me away with his talent, passion, and open hearted genuine nature. Most recently, I was incredibly impressed with his solo performance of Bright Star; it was an enigmatic, connected, heart-opening experience. My only hope is that GuruGangesha Singh will perform more as a solo artist -- I would LOVE to hear his CD versions of Wah Yantee, and the Mul Mantra LIVE. The guitar strums of Mul Mantra mixed with his healing voice makes my heart ache in a good way. So beautiful. Thank you for shining your Light ever so bright!

    -- Kirsten Hansenhttp://www.embrace-your-destiny.com
  • GuruGanesha Singh is pure joy wrapped up in human form. Having the good fortune to spend time in his presence with Snatam Kaur in Seattle was so inspiring. Spirit jumps in his body as he plays spilling out and infecting all of us. Cute, adorable and so very talented. Blessings, blessings, blessings. Can't wait for April when he comes to Seattle again with Tina Malia, who is also an ascended angel......what joy!

    -- Layahttp://www.smokeypointacupuncture.com

  • Your kirtans light up a room with light and love!

    -- Kate Donlon
  • He is magical! I loved GuruGanesha Singh the first time I saw him. He is like an antenna in-tune with the heavens. His seat is firmly rooted setting a foundation to infinity!

    -- Kateri Porto
  • GuruGanesha is a truly compassionate and authentic Being. To spend time in his presence one can feel the peace, love and joy that radiate from within him. The workshop he gave (Chanting and the Art of Happiness), almost two years ago now, continues to be a daily inspiration. A butterfly, having emerged, now flys free. Namo. Namaste.

    -- Monika M
  • I hope that now that your concert tour has allowed for a bit of a hiatus, I pray that you can find the time to rest and recharge your batteries...and give those magic fingers a break. Your kirtan (with and without Snatam) has been the backing soundtrack for this yatra! May God bless you. And may you continue to be an instrument of His peace!

    -- Father Scott Kingsburyhttp://fatherkingsbury.blogspot.com/
  • I have had the pleasure to be with GuruGanesh and loved his stories,music & his love of chants take over our hearts. Such joy to be with him!!

    -- Pat Denardohttp:// none
  • Guru Ganesha is just so cool!! I was looking for music some time ago and " "accidently" found a cd of his online. ( it wasnt spirit voyage, that surprise came later !) well, I listened then, for the first time, to kundalini chant music and was touched to the core of my being. Who is this guy? What is this sound ? It felt incredible!!!! I felt connected to something beautiful. I have been listening and loving it ever since. He makes mantra and melody an amazing experience. His voice and his guitar are one of a kind and I smile with such happiness everytime I hear it. I really feel one of his gifts to the earth is to simply be joy and in being, he brings joy to everyone. The flow feels so effortless. In one word..to me, Guru Ganesha = HAPPINESS ! Finding all of the fantastic music offered at Spirit Voyage has changed my life. I am forever grateful . SATNAM

  • At the concert in Auburn on Tuesday May 12th, Snatam said GuruGanesha Singh made every night feel like a Saturday night. She was absolutely right. He is a celebration of life, a sea of love and an unbelievable guitarist. Thanks so much to all of you for a heavenly concert and for the peace you left us all with. I pray for your van to make it back here real soon or better yet, for a newer turbo one to bring you back even faster! Thanks again.
