Revel in the deep bhakti bliss of an intimate kirtan evening with a pioneer of world devotional music. The magically mellifluous acoustic guitar stylings and resonant vocals of GuruGanesha are the focal point of his newly formed ensemble, which also features his longtime collaborators, master musicians Sat Kartar Singh (acoustic guitar, tabla, cajon, backing vocals), Gurusangat Singh (bass, nylon string guitar, backing vocals), and world music multi-percussionist Tripp Dudley on tabla, and cajon.
The group creates loving, meditative music that immerses listeners in waves of healing sound currents, inviting them to join in the joyous exchange of call-and-response chanting. With supple instrumental interplay and glorious three-part vocal harmony, the trio brings a vibrant new approach to the age-old art of kirtan, singing mantras and divine poetry drawn from the Kundalini Yoga tradition, to transport audiences to a profoundly beautiful and transcendent place.
“I’ve always loved chanting and singing,” says GuruGanesha. “But I felt that the way I could best express my soul was through the guitar. It’s like an extension of my spirit.”
The GuruGanesha Band was born of its leader’s wish to get back to his roots in kirtan and the acoustic guitar, following several triumphant tours with the electrified and electrifying GuruGanesha Band featuring Paloma Devi. That group’s invigorating new brand of bhakti rock and roll found them delighting audiences of thousands at yoga festivals and concert venues, often sharing the stage with beloved mantra duo Deva Premal and Miten. The GuruGanesha Band he says, now returns to the more intimate dynamics of a quartet ensemble and smaller venues that enable a greater heart connection and more personal interaction with the audience.
“This is what I started doing in the early ‘70s when I first embarked on the spiritual path,” says GuruGanesha, “sitting in living rooms and yoga centers, chanting with guitars in front of the fireplace.”
This latest phase of GuruGanesha’s rich and multifaceted career has reunited him with the lyrical and expressive acoustic guitar style that first claimed the world’s attention via his groundbreaking work with the divine devotional singer Snatam Kaur. His guitar and ever-open heart have also led him through well-received collaborations with Guru Singh, Thomas Barquee, Nirinjan Kaur, Jai-Jagdeesh, Tina Malia, Hans Christian and Paloma Devi. But in selecting material for the current iteration of the GuruGanesha Band to perform, he also found himself returning to the music of his solo albums, particularly his best selling disc to date, Pure Ganesh. Along with acoustic versions of recent GuruGanesha Band favorites such as “A Thousand Suns,” and “Thy Will Be Done,” GuruGanesha Band concerts are expected to highlight Pure Ganesh classics such as “Ek Ong Kar,” “Ma,” and “In the Light of My Soul.”
“The guitar work on Pure Ganesh is some of the best I’ve ever recorded,” he says. “And this new group with Sat Kartar, Gurusangat, and Tripp really brings those songs to life.”
Along with songs from throughout his long life of musical devotion, GuruGanesha will also be sharing stories, cosmic jokes and nuggets of wisdom from his more than four decades on the spiritual path and his many years as a student of the renowned spiritual master Yogi Bhajan. All in all, the GuruGanesha Band promises to be one of the most deeply inspiring and fulfilling musical experiences of the 2016 mantra season.
“The evening,” he says, “will be a beautiful journey into multiple genres—kirtan, gospel, folk, blues, raga and rock—with the common thread being mantra, divine poetry, audience participation and an uplifting positive message.”
Come share a magical evening of music, stories, joy and inspiration with GuruGanesha and his incomparable band.

GuruGanesha is a "Bright Star" illuminating the way with his music...
Stellar - his music, his compositions, his work with Snatam. Looking forward to seeing him in NYC in June.
He is so hot. I mean, for his age!
"A rock is not bothered by the river", a phrase I think about when I listen to this music. Just let go and be everything we are ment to be. We are all in one and carry all within.
radically amazing, he's bridged the gap and I want to be a roadie :)
Singh Sahib you are awesome

Just beautiful music!
Thank You for you music. And...
Gracias por su sonrisa :) Love & Peace.
No one compares to you! You are THE BEST! Just love your voice, your beautiful guitar playing and of course your wonderful energy! sat Nam!
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.
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!
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!
The closest human to pure energy I have ever been blessed to know.
that laughing photo with guitar is pure joy. SO captures you.
I LOVE IT!! Bright star is awesome, Tina Malia, wow, another angelic voice to soothe us, thank you!
see you in Montreal!
come to Bali please
Thank you for your loving presence, for your huge openheartedness, and for your wonderful music. You have certainly been given a profound gift of genius on the guitar, and your music is a blessing to the world. Thank you for your untiring work for Peace -- Holding the vision of peace for the entire world. Namaste!
I bow to you. Thank you for your music.
Making beautiful music!!!Shanti and rock'n'roll at the same time, and really warm and funny in person:))) Wahe Guru Guru Ganesha-ji :)
Thank you for the beautiful warm energy you bring to your music and your excellent guitar playing. You have inspired me to take up my guitar again after many years of it sitting idle. Bright Blessings. =)
Your kirtans light up a room with light and love!
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!
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.
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!
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!!
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
A great man who has the conviction that all people are worthy.
I think he is Truly Wonderfull
I think he is amazing!!!!
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!
I HAVENT STOPPED LISTENING TO YOUR NEW ALBUM SINCE I PLAYED IT ON MY WAY HOME
I LOVE IT---ITS WONDERFUL
