Jai-Jagdeesh's second major release is filled with the soul-stirring longing of the search for meaning in the life of a spiritual nomad. Her voice is big and bluesy, while having a surprising youthful innocence dancing through every note. This combination of song and mantra is accompanied by world-renowned sitarist Leonardo Har Prakash accompanied by violin, bansuri flute, guitars, harmonium, bass, tablas and cajon.
About the Artist
Jai-Jagdeesh's journey as a singer began over 20 years ago, in a temple in India, and the soundcurrent continued all through her childhood. While at school in Amritsar, she traveled around Northern India as one of the musical representatives of Yogi Bhajan's foreign education program (now Miri Piri Academy), playing kirtan everywhere the students were invited. Between then and now, her creative spirit has walked many artistic paths - actress, classical Indian dancer, photographer and writer - and she says 'I find myself in perfect balance now that music has returned to the forefront.' She is deeply devoted to sharing these sacred sounds, and sings them from the center of her heart. Jai-Jagdeesh's first album, I Am Thine, was a best-seller at Summer Solstice 2011.
