A transformational experience of devotional singing with songs & chants from around the world. Ravi leads this with kora, guitar and djembe.
Ravi is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and one of the longest established Western players of the kora (West African harp). His music is the result of a lifetime exploring the edge, through world music, tribal cultures, throat singing and a journey that has taken him from India to the Amazon.
As well as over 20 CDs, international performances and workshops and the invention of the electric/stereo kora, Ravi has also worked with artists such as Nigel Kennedy, Jon Lord, Phil Manzanera, Baaba Maal, Dr John, Ronu Majumdar and Marlui Miranda. The most recent albums are “Songs for the Golden Age” and “Two Rivers” with master flautist Adrian Freedman
As well as devotional singing events, such as “Kirtan & Cacao”, Ravi also offers “Overtone Singing and Voice Workshops and Retreats”
Ravi is a rare talent – a musical shaman who knows no fear.
He has been an inspiration to us over the years as he continues to cross borders and boundaries in his quest for musical expression and freedomDEVA PREMAL & MITEN
