Album Notes
Susan Shehata (Sitara), Colleen Buckman (Kalyani) and Keith Helke (Pavan Kumar), combine decades of musical expertise and theatrical performance experience, as well as a passion for yogic traditions, to create accessible and uplifting kirtan music. Will Kemperman brings a wealth of experience to the rhythm section, having played percussion for thirty years. Sitara & Kalyani with Pavan Kumar have led Kirtan at many events including: Bhakti Fest Midwest, The Twin Cities Kirtan Festival, The Twin Cites Yoga Festival, Common Grounds Yoga & Music Festival, the Varsity Theatre, Project Earth, Harvest Fest, Bella Madre and Shangri La music festivals, as well as many yoga studios and wellness centers in the Midwest. They have also had the pleasure of playing with kirtan greats Dave Stringer, Brenda McMorrow, Mike Cohen and Suzanne Sterling, as well as opening for Grammy Award winning artist, Chris Berry.

"The initial “Om” on their premier release is astonishingly strong and moving. Followed by the drone of the tampura into a lovely aarti (devotional song), Sitara and Kalyani are powerful chanters."
~Yoga Chicago

"A happy kirtan band, Sitara & Kalyani with Pavan Kumar use simple melodies we know and love to bring their message to the West. Using drums & bass or world percussion they have a light rock feel but stay true to the style of kirtan chanting. Musically and energetically, Sitara & Kalyani deliver a message of unity."

“Tight drum grooves and soulful guitar work provide an earthy texture over which compelling melodies and rich, dignified harmonies shimmy and soar. You won’t want to miss the playful romping and deep longing this group shares in person and on CD.”
~Michael H. Cohen, Dattatreya Kirtan Institute founder
