Join us for an evening of kirtan and meditative, uplifting instrumental music inspired by traditions from around the world. The one pointed focus on a mantra, the breath, or a pattern of musical notes can lead one into an uplifted state. Colin Allured, Richard Downs and Bill Smith will take a musical journey with instruments such as the North Indian sarod, West African kamala ngoni, the udu, djembe dumbek, gongs, violin and native American flute. Come sing, listen and breathe in this incredibly unique musical offering of Breathing Devotion.
Musicians Richard Downs and Bill Smith will create soundscapes, and Richard will lead a guided meditation Friday, Sept. 27, from 7:30 - 9:00pm at the studio.

The room will be filled with the rich sound of gongs, violin, Native American Flutes, singing bowls and many other exotic sounds.
