"All Religions, All This Singing; One Song." ~Rumi
We are ONE LOVE, offering Global Ecstatic Chant--a unique blend of Hindu Kirtan and other devotional chants from across the spectrum of spiritual traditions and cultures--
Playing a wide array of instruments, and drawing from many musical genres, we combine beautiful vocal harmonies with infectious energy. ONE LOVE performances are highly interactive, educational, and transformational.
We also offer live music yoga classes, workshops and retreats that synthesize sacred chant, ecstatic movement, meditation and sound healing.
One Love was chosen in 2014 as the most outstanding emerging band by BhaktiFest, the most popular yoga and chant festival in the US.
We are based in Ithaca, NY, and travel to cultural centers, yoga studios, retreat centers, churches and other spiritual communities, colleges, and festivals around the U.S.
One Love features Kripalu Yoga teacher and interfaith minister Jyoti (Jody Kessler) on guitar and vocals, dance shaman Nataraj (Doug Shire) on keyboard harmonium, and electronica, and multi-instrumental wizard Joe Smellow on percussion and an array of flutes, harmonica, pan pipes, didgeridoo, and more. We are also joined by singing goddesses Shakti Moksha and Dawn Tiphereth on vocals and percussion, and an extended family of guest musicians and singers.
We invite you to join us for a musical celebration of global prayer!
"The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience." ~Emily Dickinson
