Welcome to an intimate acoustic, solo concert with renowned World Music artist Jai Uttal. Stepping into a deeper level of vulnerability, Jai invites you into his 'mystic living room' to share songs, instruments and stories from every phase of his inspiring musical and spiritual journey. From ecstatic love songs of the Bauls of Bengal, to dark banjo ballads of Appalachia, to Bossa Nova kirtans from his latest release, Jai invites you to join him in a heart space of communion, invocation and celebration.
Jai Uttal is a Grammy-nominated sacred music composer, recording artist (20 albums to date!), multi-instrumentalist, and ecstatic vocalist, combining influences from India with elements from American rock and jazz, to create a stimulating and exotic multi-cultural fusion that is truly world spirit music. Having travelled extensively in India, where he met many great saints and singers, Bhakti Yoga became his personal path. Jai has been performing and teaching around the world for nearly 50 years, creating a safe environment for people to open their hearts and voices.
