Raj Yoga + Meditation Presents:Jai Dev & Simrit - A Love Supreme: A Live Music Kundalini Yoga Experience
Taught by Jai DevLive Music with Simrit, Featuring Salif Bamakora
At the base of the spine resides great power. At the top of the crown is profound awareness. Yet, it is in the center of the chest where the power of the human and the magic of the heavens unite. At the nucleus of every being, and in the center of all creation is the force of Love. When this greatest of all powers is unlocked at the heart center, everything changes. That which seemed bitter becomes sweet. That which seemed unattainable is within reach.
Set to the transporting music of world-renowned artist Simrit, we will open the lock of the heart center and activate the power of the Infinite within. You will exercise the body, move the life-force, elevate the spirit, and unlock the flow of Supreme Love.

Simrit is a Renaissance woman who is the CEO of her independent record label, SIMRIT KAUR MUSIC, and she has topped World Music Charts including iTunes at #1 for consecutive weeks at a time, many times over, and Billboard Music’s top 5 and 10 with her last four consecutive releases.
Her music and artistry, which have attracted fans such as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and Belinda Carlisle of the Go-Go’s, is known for it’s depth, haunting beauty, edge, and psychedelic atmosphere. Drawing on the harmonic beauty and melodic sensibilities of the ancient Byzantine, Greek Orthodox chants she grew up with, adding the pulse of the West African drum traditions she studied, and fused with her training in piano and vocals from different traditions, Simrit and her band tease out distinct facets of mystical poetry and the intimate ardors of the spirit. Over the last several years they have created waves with packed theaters and concert halls, chart-topping albums, and raving fans that have powered a palpable musical movement.
Salif Bamakora plays the rare and majestic 21 string harp known as Kora, descending from the Manding people of West Africa. The deep and mystical polyrhythmic nature of the Kora comes alive with Salif's masterful playing. In the last 2 decades, he has had the great honor of studying with many world-renowned kora players, such as Madou Sidiki Diabate, Toumani Diabate, Yacouba Sissoko, and Balla Tounkara.
Blending the traditional Malian roots of Kora with his own distinct instrumental voice, Salif’s compositions are soul-stirring and otherworldly. Salif’s musical practice is a spiritual path embodied, his creative expression channels a deep and authentic connection to the Divine.
