Concert at Yoga Shala
The Temple Bhajan Band is a group of devotional chanters
that tours Southern California's yoga studios,
yoga retreats, and various social events. They have been together since 1999.
The heart of the band is Sura whose voice is well known among practitioners of
yoga and interfaith followers. While Sura sings to the accompaniment of the
harmonium he leads the rest of the members on instruments such as the esaraja,
tamboura, kartals, flute, violin, and mrdunga drum in a dynamic symphony that
is timeless. The Temple Bhajan Band plays ancient Vedic bhajans, which include
mantras and chants from spiritual India. Many of the chants are done
in a responsive fashion where the audience can participate and experience the
purifying pleasure of the chanting. At their events they also bring a slide
show of India
to exhibit during the chanting.
