Nationally Known Recording Chant Artist Comes To Indy
Kristin Luna Ray
Asheville-based mantra musician Kristin Luna Ray will perform at CITYOGA School of Yoga and Health on October 11. Yoga and live music takes place from 4 to 6 p.m. with kirtan following from 7 to 8 p.m.
In addition to the kirtan, Luna Ray will also play live music as part of the Alive Musical Yoga Experience, a unique community- wide yoga workshop for all ages and skill levels. “It’s a beautiful coupling of sound and movement that hits people on a deeply spiritual level,” Luna Ray says. “People leave feeling really good right down into the core of who they are, no matter their age or experience level.”
Luna Ray, provider of a fast-growing genre of music that brings mantra into the mainstream, blends world, folk, pop, Middle Eastern and Indian styles with the soothing vibrations of mantras and the element of kirtan. The practice of kirtan, a call-and-response chanting practice in concert form, has steadily gained popularity in the U.S. and has been featured recently in The New York Times, Time Magazine and National Public Radio’s All Things Considered.
