Chris Lane ~

A slide guitar, a looper, bamboo flutes and voice…. I’m using these tools live to create soundscapes, beats, and atmospheres, a reflection of what’s happening in my heart and the kind of vibe I want to share with the planet… hope you enjoy!!

Where you may have seen me before……
I grew playing the sax but fell in love with the bamboo flute on my first trip to India in 1997,a trip that changed my life forever.
I played with OKA for about 12 years from 2001-2013, we travelled the globe and recorded 6 albums together – an amazing time of journeying and discovery.

After that I needed a change of pace and spent most of my time on the island of Bali playing mostly with Kevin James Carroll, rediscovering my connection with kirtan and the rejuvenation of life in the slow lane. I played many kirtans and the Bali Spirit Festival in 2013 & 2014.

While there I connected with Xavier Rudd, jamming, surfing and exploring new dimensions, which led to joining his band The United Nations. We recorded an album called Nanna and toured the World extensively in 2015, performing 120 gigs from March to November.
Now I’m playing solo, creating devotional soundscapes with bamboo flutes, acoustic guitar, slide guitar, mantras and a looper. I’ve just released my first album in this style and look forward to sharing that with you and playing for you live somewhere around this amazing planet, with love Chris.

Heres my sessions for the Woodford Festival!

Beautiful way to spend a Saturday morning!Big shout of gratitude to the 30 who showed up for the gathering of the gangs Zentied therapists day on a busy time of the year ...and put this priority before market stalls, clinic, family gatherings etc .. to come along and really get lifted up into fresh heartfulness ., as this piece of Adya reminds us we need to lift our warrior spirit at times to remind us to come home to what is true and meaningful outside of conditioning ..
" I will scatter myself amongst men and women and share a new roughness and toughness amongst them "Adyashanti

Thanks to Monique de Goey wonderful food... Caitlyn for the smoking ceremony, Sherrelle Dolphin .. yin yoga ..Kate Barzdo..heartful music @ Gaia Williams..Gaitri mantra closure

My fave was merging with amazing tunes of close bro Chris Lane to simply sync into rhythm ..where music and movement become one .. Great news is we will be teaming up at #woodfordfolkfestival to offer our gestures where time slips out of the equation .. yes ..he will have some tunes to buy ..be ready

Blessed Coast Festival - Squamish 2017

Jul 28, 11:00am - Aug 1, 6:00am

Cheekye Ranch
60001 Squamish Valley Road
Brackendale, BC  V0N1H0 Map

The 3rd annual Blessed Coast Music, Yoga & Arts Festival will be held from July 28 to July 31st on unceded Coast Salish Territory, in Squamish, BC - just 50 minutes from downtown Vancouver!

Blessed Coast 2017 offers a curated line-up of ground-breaking local and international Artists, DJs and Producers, including 3-time Juno Award winner Alpha Yaya Diallo, Juno nominee Adham Shaikh and 3-time Grammy Award winner Chin Injeti, former member of A Tribe Called Red, DJ Shub, Ayla Nereo and more. To view this year’s exciting roster of Artists, please visit our Artists page: 2017 Artists

Blessed Coast also hosts BC’s favourite Yoga Teachers, Speakers and Wisdom Keepers in our Yoga Shala and Workshop spaces. These classes and workshops will take place in breathtaking surroundings, with 360° views of snow-capped mountains. Our festival is both family and eco-friendly. This year’s event is 100% powered by renewable energy, and features solar-powered sound stages! Cheekye Ranch is an amazing 88-acre property in the heart of the Squamish Valley, and offers Riverside and Meadow Camping.

Working with lineage holding coast salish elders to bring the ancient ways of communal ceremony into the modern context of celebration, is an important part of what we do and why we are different from other festivals. In our work with these elders each of our staff and guests is acting on behalf of their own ancestry, in this cocreation of culture. To see what attendees had to say about Blessed Coast 2016, visit: Blessed Coast Reviews 2016

We invite you to join us for this 3-day celebration of this beautiful coastal community. RV and Car Camping Available. Group and Tent Camping spaces are limited, so book yours fast. Day Passes are available. KIDS UNDER 12 ARE FREE. We also provide a full schedule of Children’s entertainment and family activities.

We joyously anticipate your arrival on the land in Squamish!

Join Australia’s very own OKA and members of Canada’s Native powerhouse, ATCR, in a very special event that's happening in Canada this summer.

The OKA CAMP OUT is celebration of life and culture through music , dance, and ceremony and has been a massive hit across Australia for the past 4 years with sell out events.

The OKA CAMP OUT is a camping event at PANDANUS TREE FARM, an amazing piece of land, where friends and families can come together and have the opportunity sit around a fire, play music, listen to story and connect with each other and the land. We'll engage with the traditional custodians of the land to share their ceremony and wisdom in whatever form that takes.

On the music stage there’ll performances by OKA, BEAR WITNESS from ATCR, and acoustic artist LEONARD SUMNER.

There are more special guests to be announced, alongside local sound system, BOSS SOUND SYNDICATE playing roots reggae and dub, as well market stalls and locally grown food and produce and herbs from the local community. There will also be Yoga to a live sound track by OKA on the Sunday morning.
