Baird Hersey & PRANA with Shubhra
Sunday, January 14, 6 pm, $15
Mountain View Studio, Woodstock
This special evening will be an intertwining of the music of Prana with the Vedantic teaching and chant of Shubhra. The aim of both the music and the teaching will be to open the heart through sound.
Shubhra, a close disciple of renowned Vedantic Master H.H. Swami Chinmayananda, is originally from India and studied with Swamiji for twenty years from the age of thirteen. Since coming to the US in 1993 Shubhra has been teaching spiritual studies, meditation and scriptural texts like the Bhaghavad Gita and Upanishads. These are part of the ancient Vedanta philosophy of India, which is universal in its appeal. She has interacted with diverse communities in the course of her spiritual works.
Baird Hersey and PRANA apply the fundamental overtone techniques to the “natural voice” to sing two mellifluous pitches at once. By using their natural singing voices, PRANA can move between any pitches that they can sing with overtones added above them. This completely opens up the possibilities for use of harmonics in singing. Singing as a group in this unique style they create beautiful rising harmonies, shimmering vocal textures, and high arcing melodies.
CD’s by both PRANA and Shubhra will be available for purchase at the event.
