Announcing The Sounds for Seva 2015 Tour: A Benefit for The C J Maa Music School featuring Shivananda Sharma from Rishikesh India! October 9th-25th with events in New York, Mass, Maine.

The Solar Dynasty Band offers a traditional style kirtan that is deeply meditative and devotional. Infused with love & devotion, sanskrit mantra, traditional Indian classical music & rhythms, and personal expression – their kirtan creates an uplifting, healing and sacred space to celebrate and honor the divine presence in us all. Ravi and Lisa view it as their dharma or sacred path to bring the powerful practices of mantra and kirtan to others. Whether playing solo, as a duo or accompanied by other talented musicians, their goal is to uplift and bring people to deeper states of bliss and meditation.

Their kirtan is influenced by Ma Chetan Jyoti, Sadguru Sant Keshavadas, Namadeva Acharya, Devadas, Krishna Das and the divine shakti that flows through us all.

They regularly offer kirtan at various venues across New England, as well as accompany other kirtan artists. They play at yoga retreats, yoga classes, churches, temples, living rooms, and various charity and fundraising events.

The Solar Dynasty Band offers this practice with prem (love) and gratitude to all who feel called to this beautiful and inspiring bhakti yoga. All are welcome to share and enjoy this practice with us!
