More about Bhakti Band

Bhakti is a musical journey into Kirtan music sung primarily in Sanskrit, an ancient language known for its healing vibrations. Bhakti Band musicians fuse their diverse backgrounds in rock, soul, world and jazz music with their love for meditation and yoga to bring expression to this beautiful form of meditative singing.

Bhakti has played everywhere from New York’s Town Hall and Lincoln Center to the United Nations and Jakkur Airfield in Bangalore, India in front of a crowd of millions. All band members actively volunteer on community service projects and use their music to help harmonize, heal and uplift the people around them.

Band members: Manish Tandon – Vocals & Guitar, Mary Walker – Vocals,  Aram Bajakian – Lead Guitar, Yumna Omar – Percussion,  Joey Repice – Lead Percussion

To nurture happiness and resilience in our children, we teach ART Excel courses for children 8-13 years old. The ART Excel course (stands for All Round Training in Excellence) teaches a breathing technique called Sudarshan Kriya as well as yoga to eliminate stress, along with other valuable tools to manage emotions. Many of these processes are taught through games.

At the end of the course, the children act out skits to express what they have learnt, with their parents as the audience. They come up with stories based on their daily lives. Students learn to be positive, support each other and respond to bullying.  Here are some photos by Kaarthiga Shiva of a recent ART Excel course (Feb 23, 2012) at the Metuchen Art of Living center taught by Amrapalee Panchal.
