Lloyd Barde (Music Editor of Common Ground Magazine / Grammy Selection Committee for New Age Music) shares,
“Some music just slides right into your heart, and opens a space of genuine listening that is fresh and delightful. Such is the case with the music of Luna Ray…It will draw you in right away with it’s warmth, accessibility and pure authenticity.”
”Luna" Ray is a teacher of yoga, a workshop and retreat leader, kirtan musician and recording artist, and an activist for conscious and empowered community collaboration. She has travelled and taught extensively throughout the world weaving ancient yoga tradition, and heart felt music and mantra, deeply touching the souls of those who come to her events. She has performed at festivals such as Bhakti Fest, LEAF, Floyd Yoga Jam, and other nationally known festivals and conferences. She believes music is the sacred soul of the voice and is committed to sharing music in a way that leads to greater understanding of oneself and to our connection to one another and the planet.
Luna shares, “I love music. It’s one of the universal languages and it’s been something, especially when there’s intention behind it, which has opened my heart and connected me to something deeper and bigger in others as well. “ Luna shares about the new album. “‘Shining Through’ is a remembrance that no matter what you’re going through in life, there’s something that will hold the light for you—so just hang on. The mantras can become your consistency.”
Many artists from the kirtan chant community including David Newman, Girish, and the Desert Dwellers came together to help create “Shining Through.” The album was also mastered by legendary studio engineer Hans Christian, who is known for working with artists such as Krishna Das and Snatam Kaur.
“Luna's music simply put, is magical and luminous. Luna has a unique quality in her voice
that transmits something special, a kind of nectar that permeates all.”
-David Newman
(Durga Das)

“Luna has reached a fresh and authentic level of perfection and beauty with her music.”
-Wah!

Kirtan is a form of Bhakti Yoga (“the yoga of devotion”) that involves call and response chanting blended with soulful music that is said to calm the mind and open the heart. The roots of Kirtan date back over 1000 years to India. The singing is accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming and the audience is encouraged to participate by singing, clapping and/or dancing.
Luna resides part time in Asheville, NC, and part time in Costa Rica where she is co-founder of True Nature Education (www.TrueNatureEducation.com).

Musical Nourishment and Mantra joy!
I have always thought of music as a way to nourish the soul. The newest album by Luna Ray, "Shining Through", is yumminess to the very core of my being. Her voice is so easy to love and each song is crafted with creative lyrics and interpretations of sacred mantras. One can't help but groove along to the beautifully composed instrumental rhythms. After one time listening to "Shining Through", you will be joyfully chanting along in pure Bhakti love. Jai Luna!
