We welcome Mukunda back to House of Bliss, knowing that his playing and presence always brings great joy within the kirtan. It’s going to be a great night to chant together, this coming Friday in Mullumbimby!

Mukunda (Michael Beresford) was raised in Byron area, but has spent his life travelling to and fro, including long stays in India, absorbing the spirit of the land and its people, and learning how to walk an authentic path of devotion through music and prayer.

Message from Muki:

“Growing up in Gaudia Vaishnava (Hare Krishna) community and schooling in Mayapur, West Bengal, I have had exposure to kirtan since birth.

I try to share the mood and sweetness of kirtan the best I can, overall taking shelter of the process of bhakti, and following the teachings of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (the Hare Krishna spiritual leader who was born in 1486).

In this, every step is a dance and every word is a song.

Ultimately the kirtan process according to Gaudia Vaishnava tradition is the means and the way.”

Next Friday 18th August at House of Bliss, we have some fabulous Indian Classical Music scholars joining the band!!

Mico Sundari and Shivam Rath go by the artist names Micotsuki and Shivamoon, in honour of the full-crescent moon depicted by the Hindu god Shiva, and the semi-crescent moon known as “mika-tsuki” in Japan, Mico’s birth country. They have both practiced the arts of spiritual devotion through music for many years, mainly with Indian ragas, Indian Classical vocal training, and kirtan.

“Micotsuki Shivamoon” is their spiritual sound duo, producing an authentic journey through traditional, mystical, and modern music. Shivam focuses on achieving technically perfect pitch, and explores the depths of sound vibration, raga, and rhythm. Mico feels the mood from her inner core, allowing her heart to soar through her voice, and out into the world of musical creation.

As a child, Shivam Rath began traditional Indian Classical Music training guided by his father. As an adult, he resumed this study while doing a two-year Satyananda Yoga Diploma. Upon completion, he went to India in 2010-13 to meet and train with Pandit Chhote Lal Misra (his father’s tabla teacher) in Varanasi, and Indian slide-guitarist Dr Shibbanath Bhattacharya.

After the passing of Pt Chhote Lal Misra, Shivam relocated to Kolkata, in order to perform more extensively on the Indian slide-guitar with world renowned guitarist Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya. He began learning Indian vocals in order to feel the essence of the raga more deeply, and to infuse this while sharing kirtan and mantras.

Shivam uses the Veena method of playing, sliding a crystal ball on his instrument’s strings to alter pitch, and aiming for crystal clear clarity.

Mico Sundari resonates with Japan’s Shinto (animist) spiritual heritage. She has been receiving vocal tuition in Indian Classical Music from Gina Sala and Taro Terahara. Mico utilises her voice to produce an other-worldly atmosphere and approach to musical expression.

Mico has held workshops to teach voice therapy and singing, in various musical styles, with a particular emphasis on kirtan. She is fastidious about correct Sanskrit pronunciation because of her belief in the innate power of Sankrit’s sacred seed sounds. Her voice is quite something to behold.

In 2015, Mico and Shivam released their first CD “Star Seed Garden”, and toured extensively in Japan. In 2017, their second album “Rainbow Vibration” was released, just before settling down in Byron Shire with their newborn son.

Come along Friday 18th August and hear them combine their musical talents as part of the House of Bliss band. Doors open 6:30pm for chai, soup, and snacks.

It will be wonderful to have Tarshito back at House of Bliss on 18th August!!

Tarshito has lived in the Byron area for over three decades, and is a key leader in the local kirtan scene and Sacred Chanting Circles. He currently runs HeartChant kirtan gatherings fortnightly with Nyck Jeanes.

He has been singing bhajans, kirtans, and sacred chants since 1970, and played with incredibly talented musicians and chant leaders. For the past 15 years, he has also been conducting sound healing journeys, including many collaborations with renowned Byron Bay area sound healers.

As a multi-instrumentalist, Tarshito started playing guitar in 1961, then added bass, keyboards, flute, percussion, didgeridoo, and vocals too. Here is a seasoned musician who is devoting his life to musical collaborations, creating and recording, and has received many professional music industry nominations and awards for his efforts. Since the mid-eighties, he has recorded and produced fifty-two (!) CDs of original music, and many more for other musicians, predominantly from his own studio. Quite prolific!

Born and brought up in South Africa, Tarshito moved to Australia in 1984, building his own recording studio in 1988. With musical roots in rock, jazz, funk, classical, and African music, and then extensive travel, playing with awesome musicians from around the globe, he has assimilated numerous world music genres into his personal style: Latin, Brazilian, Eastern, Mid- Eastern, Indonesian, Australian tribal, Ambient, New Age, Trance, Sacred Chanting…

He is a master of improvisation and spontaneous music and has played/worked in theatre and for multi-media presentations, as well as offering music for ritual, ceremony, meditation, and celebrations.

Since 1969, involvement in yoga, meditation and healing have had major influences on Tarshito’s music. He has released many meditation, chakra, and other healing music albums, including four sacred chanting albums.

His large echelon of albums are available for listening, purchase, and online download at:
tarshito.bandcamp.com and www.tarshito.net

Do put House of Bliss in your diary for Friday 18th August if you’re keen to have a great night chanting!!

Her Voice is Platinum <3 Straight to the Heart ~ opening remembering of the Song we were born with.

Last time we gathered, the peace and the ecstasy of chanting together were really special. There was also lots of fun dancing, and some gorgeous kids joining in. Our guests Rachel Zinman and John Weddephol brought some fabulous chants to share with us. Together with Caroline, Ohad, Erik, and Ariel it was a great band! Radha, Scarla, and Leo also played a big part in the success of the evening.

Unfortunately Avishai was ill with the flu and suddenly had to cancel. We’re all sending well-wishes for a swift recovery back to full health. French composer and producer Ariel Kamla graciously filled in. He brought his sax, flute, and quirky percussion instruments. It was a wonderful night of great music and blissful chanting! Thanks to all who came to chant and to the team who put this night together for everyone’s enjoyment. It really does take a broad community to create a community event!! People come from near and far. There are some volunteers who come regularly, but since this a year-long thing, no-one is able to be there every single time. It would be fantastic if a few more local chanters could assist with setup and packdown for the House of Bliss.

Last Friday, Alice was assisted with setup by her husband Kan and dear friend Sayaka, who do not attend kirtan events, but who both heard the call on the Friday afternoon when Alice unfortunately smashed her right hand with a heavy object. With the calm, efficient manner brought by the Japanese, the hall was decorated to look and feel fabulous, and the hand is healing well, thanks to so much love and support.

It was strange that there was not a single volunteer from the chanting community who was able to do seva for setup that night, and that it took a last-minute public plea for help on social media to get assistance. Sometimes the divine works in such mysterious ways…

It was a great relief that Kan and Sayaka came, and that so many people assisted with packdown. What a difference it makes if each person just folds or packs one thing! It was wonderful to have some muscle power offered by locals Hielrick, and Eliezer, as well as Henry from Melbourne, to get all of the decor, sound, and lighting gear packed up properly and into the cars. Angels come in many guises and for them we are ever-grateful. Thanks to you all for being who you are.

Let’s continue to see each other clearly and offer support in community where we can… Into the bliss of the one heart, we chant the names of the divine, and open ourselves to loving each other more… Aum Shanti Aum

Rachel Zinman and John Weddepohl have both been immersed in music most of their lives. This coming Friday is the first opportunity for House of Bliss to welcome them to the band.

For Rachel, Bhakti Yoga is a way of life. She is a yoga teacher and sees kirtan (call and response chanting) and bhajan (singing in unison) as two of the main ways to express her continuous devotion.

Coming from a musical family, Rachel has been singing and writing songs for the last 25 years and is known for her band The Subway Bhaktis and their devotional CDs “Sita Ram” and “Rasa Lila”. These chants and songs were first conceived when living in New York City from 2000 to 2004. Rachel was teaching ISHTA yoga in NYC and as part of her studies discovered the joys of chanting. She would often practice mantras in the subways; commuting to and fro beneath the city, making up melodies to help herself remember them. At home together with the musical talent of her then-husband Nyck Jeanes, these chants became musical pieces.

John has been a talented musician from the age of seven, has worked as a singer-songwriter, and has recorded international hits. Fronting two of South Africa’s favourite bands, John has composed music for film and television, and won international awards at Cannes, New York, and London.

He opened his first yoga school in downtown Johannesburg in 1969, later living in India for many years as a western sadhu, immersed in a deep study of Hindu yogic philosophy before going on to continue his path as a yoga philosophy teacher.

Despite success in the traditional world of music, John is glad to be out of the music “business” and free to express his devotion as best as he can through kirtan and bhajan.
Rachel and John first met online in 2005, then connected in person in 2011. They have since been playing together at festivals, workshops, and retreats worldwide.

House of Bliss is happy to welcome back Elias Harmony, joining us again this coming Friday 7th July from 6:30pm.

"Healing through sound, harmonics, and song is a passion of mine.

Before I discovered the power of mantra, I had trained in vocal overtone singing for balancing chakras to accompany healing. Later, on my first visit to Pune, India, my already bursting love-full heart ignited with the discovery of mantra. But it wasn't until ’93 in Lucknow, where I met Papaji, that singing the Holy Names really took hold.

There I met Sangeeta Lavin. I was lucky enough to chant and record some songs with her. This experience, coupled with Papaji’s transcendental presence, inspired me to continue my journey of healing through self-enquiry and through exploring the power of mantra. Through chanting, I unexpectedly began to experience these deep states of meditation which I’d only ever achieved deep in Vipassana meditation. I could see and feel the profound connection between mantra and its Divine Source.

When it comes to singing mantras as a practice, my fundamental philosophy is to let go of inhibition, open up, and fill ourselves with love and the intent to surrender to the greater Divine Source. I love singing, so that helps achieve this state too.

Love is the manifestation of all that is holy and powerful. It is infused into the very fabric of creation. In turn, we are in a powerful state of creation when we combine our love-devotion with ancient and holy Vedic Mantras. A teacher of mine once said of Mantra: "The words 'are' creation itself."

I've been chanting now for over 20 years: privately, for yoga schools, kirtan groups, yoga festivals, and for my Gurus. It has transformed my life and given me connection in ways I could never describe.

Beautiful chanting!

We are so happy that Lila Kirtana and Mal Knights are joining us on Friday 23rd June. They offer mantra music at Mullumbimby’s House of Bliss once a year, as well as at the end-of-year One Day Chant Festival.

Lila and Mal are passionate Bhakti yogis. She became a Krishna devotee in 2005, and three years later Mal joined her on this path. For them, practicing the yogic lifestyle, includes diving deep into music and mantra, offering their services to community in a professional way almost every day.

Lila has been teaching yoga and practicing kirtan since 2005, first as a volunteer for over two years while living in a Krishna yoga ashram, and then as a senior Yoga Teacher Trainer for eight years at Byron Yoga Centre. She is inspired by Ayurveda, which she learnt during numerous trips to India. In 2012, Lila completed Bliss Baby Yoga’s Pre/Postnatal Yoga training, and has taught on their courses. She also completed Kid's Yoga teacher training with Zenergy Yoga, holds a Remedial Massage Certificate, and is the lead singer of the “enCHANTed” kirtan band.

Since 2015, Lila and Mal manage retreats and run Yoga Teacher Training Programs at Krishna Village near Uki. The Village is a yoga retreat centre, an eco yoga community set on an organic farm, called Krishna Farm. Their work includes offering a daily midday kirtan practice to devotees, volunteers, retreat guests, and residence staff, usually averaging fifty people in residence... All are welcome!

“In the 15th century, the Bhaktis wrote ecstatic love poems to the Divine and went around singing all the time. The message is simple: cultivate joy. See the Divine in each other. The message still holds relevance today and I drank it in and made it my own. After 2 years of study I took initiation with a beautiful Swami who named me Lila Kirtana – ‘the joy of chanting the Divine Names’. He told me that Kirtan is the safest place to be in the material world. In chanting I found a way to switch off my turbulent mind. It was a revolutionary realisation to me that I could control my thoughts– to take control rather than just be an observer. By chanting these ancient mantras we insert a positive vibration, and as light dispels darkness, mantra chanting removes the negative thoughts and energy from the body. Kirtan and yoga changed my life so dramatically that I just have to sing. To not chant would be to deny my soul its chance to grow.” Lila Kirtana

Lila has been teaching yoga and practicing kirtan since 2005, first as a volunteer for over two years while living in a Krishna yoga ashram, and then as a senior Yoga Teacher Trainer for eight years at Byron Yoga Centre. She is inspired by Ayurveda, which she learnt during numerous trips to India. In 2012, Lila completed Bliss Baby Yoga’s Pre/Postnatal Yoga training, and has taught on their courses. She also completed Kids Yoga teacher training with Zenergy Yoga, holds a Remedial Massage Certificate, and is the lead singer of the “enCHANTed” kirtan band. 

Since 2015, Lila and Mal manage retreats and run Yoga Teacher Training Programs at Krishna Village near Uki. The Village is a yoga retreat centre, an eco yoga community set on an organic farm, called Krishna Farm. Their work includes offering a daily midday kirtan practice to devotees, volunteers, retreat guests, and residence staff, usually averaging fifty people in residence... All are welcome!

“In the 15th century, the Bhaktis wrote ecstatic love poems to the Divine and went around singing all the time. The message is simple: cultivate joy. See the Divine in each other. The message still holds relevance today and I drank it in and made it my own. After 2 years of study I took initiation with a beautiful Swami who named me Lila Kirtana – ‘the joy of chanting the Divine Names’. He told me that Kirtan is the safest place to be in the material world. In chanting I found a way to switch off my turbulent mind. It was a revolutionary realisation to me that I could control my thoughts– to take control rather than just be an observer. By chanting these ancient mantras we insert a positive vibration, and as light dispels darkness, mantra chanting removes the negative thoughts and energy from the body. Kirtan and yoga changed my life so dramatically that I just have to sing. To not chant would be to deny my soul its chance to grow.” Lila Kirtana

“I love singing, I love life, l love the connection singing creates and the loving bonds that form within a singing group. We are all limitless beings and can create great things in our lives. Singing is one of the quickest ways to connect to the joy of who we really are… LOVE” Julia Williamson

Since 2014, Julia Williamson has been collaborating with House of Bliss as a guest musician and vocalist. In December three years ago, she was part of the band when Sangeeta launched her kirtan CD “Ageless”. What a fabulous event that was!!

Julia is an experienced 'Past Age Clearing and Healing Practitioner' (PACH) and has had a lifetime of singing and performing since childhood. She is also a vocal teacher who runs private singing and healing sessions. Julia is currently focusing on recording her music and creating empowering workshops to teach others how to run their own singing groups, as well as continuing monthly VoiceJam singing and healing workshops in Byron Shire.

For more on Julia, let's meet in the bhav this Friday night as we chant kirtan mantras together at House of Bliss.

This year, Ohad Rein is a regular core member of the House of Bliss band. After travelling the world with his music, and spending four years in Israel spreading the benefits of kirtan, he has now relocated to Byron Shire. Ohad is a yoga teacher and professional musician, who brings his unique upbeat flavour to our fortnightly gatherings.

As a singer-songwriter and producer, he has won an APRA award, and is known for the project he calls Old Man River. He has toured the world extensively sharing his music, produced multiple albums, and some interesting music videos. During one of his tours, enroute to a show, a chance meeting took place on a plane with famous kirtan musician Krishna Das. A series of events following that meeting led Ohad to dive deeply into the wonderful and ancient practice of kirtan. It is a simple and accessible practice, that helps us open our hearts, free our minds, and express our voice.

This practice welcomes all. Kirtan beginners or Kirtan pros! You don't have to be a great singer or a sanskrit scholar to enjoy the immediate joyful effects of this profound practice!

Join us at House of Bliss every second Friday to "follow your bliss”.

Thanks to all who came in person and in spirit to join us for this great night of chanting. It was swingin'!

🌿The Edo Kahn and Jo Mall Tribute Band has now been born (LOL) 😂

Though we were all disappointed that Edo and his partner Emily missed their flight from Sydney and suddenly couldn't join us, the energy was still fantastic🎼🎷🥁✨

👼True Practice lies in the ability to overcome adversity so that we can find the peace within, act with compassion, and share unconditional love 🕉☮️💟Om Shanti Om 🕉☮️💟

Jasmine offered a beautiful song called Saraswati, written by the late Jo Mall 🕊So beautiful... In honour of Edo and Jo's devotion to the Divine, the band also did covers of other mantras that Edo and Jo often share/d🌿

Definitely a special moment <3

Great night once again! Loved the sax player 👍

Yes! Ariel Kalma was great wasn't he!! So talented with so many instruments last night, but that Sax playing just took it Home!!!

“Music to me is the closest thing to silence.” Ariel Kalma

This week Ariel will be joining House of Bliss as a special guest member of the band. His passionate music will be woven with kirtan chants led by Edo, Ohad, Emily, Jasmine, and Dinesh.

Welcome Ariel!!

Born and raised in Paris, France, Ariel started playing the recorder at age 9 and saxophone at 15. During his successive studies of Electronics, Computer Science, Music and Art in Paris, Ariel performed with several bands, then toured the world and visited Europe, Japan, India, Eastern Canada, and parts of the USA. Apart from rhythm & blues, pop and jazz, he acquired assorted experiences in middle-age French, electro-acoustic, and modal music. All the travels broadened Ariel's musical horizons tremendously; listening to and playing with different styles, people, and instruments, intricate scales, techniques, timing and rhythms.

After learning circular breathing from a snake charmer in India, Ariel practiced it on soprano sax - for many sleepless nights - in the basement of a cathedral in New York (when he was not playing upstairs on the large harmonium).

Returning to France in late '76, Ariel could include those endless notes into his own long-delay-effect system with which he toured, playing solo concerts. Ariel contributed to the birth of (then) new music genres: minimalist, space, ambient, new age, electronic etc.

With his passion for recording and sound, Ariel always had a home studio and was also technical assistant to some of the composers at Paris' GRM - Musical Research Group part of the INA (Audiovisual National Institute), where he recorded some of his compositions.

Over 3 decades, Ariel Kalma published several vinyl LP's, cassettes, and CD's, many older ones out of print. His compositions have been used for modern dance-theatre, films, musical poetry, guided meditations, transformational groups. Ariel Kalma has also played on many albums in France - even throughout Europe, the US and recently Australia, where he lives.

We look forward to Ariel’s presence tomorrow night.

A big welcome back to Edo Kahn, a great singer-songwriter and mantra musician who is currently based in Sydney. His music is an enchanting mix of Eastern mantra and Western indie-pop that is both soothing and uplifting.

Edo will join us at House of Bliss this coming Friday 9th June, with Emily, Jasmine (Sashini), Dinesh, Ohad and Ariel in the band.

Edo Kahn was previously signed with Virgin/EMI with his rock bands Gelbison and Kahn Brothers, and is an APRA award-winning songwriter.

With his former partner Jo Mall Kahn (now peacefully transcended to the realm of angels) he has played at various international conscious events and festivals, recently opening for Deepak Chopra, Bhakti Fest (USA), Prana Fest (USA), Bali Spirit Festival, 1 Giant Mind Mass Meditation (Bali), and at Australia’s major yoga-music festivals, including Uplift Festival, Byron Spirit, Sydney Spirit, Bhakti Bliss, and Bodhi Festival.

Dedicated to conscious living and seva, they co-founded A Sound Life in 2013 (www.asoundlife.org), a charity harnessing the skills of volunteers to bring free yoga and music to those in aged-care, hospitals and underprivileged communities, with Ben Lee, Lisa Mitchell and Luke Steele (Empire of the Sun ) as ambassadors.

This music goes straight to the heart, soothing, uplifting, mesmerizing and electric!

I believe the full moon is due around friday too .. this promises to be a wonderful House of Bliss presentation, welcome Edo!

Our most recent House of Bliss was such a joyous gathering! Every time the vibe is comfortingly similar, but with a freshness brought mainly by the mix of "house band" and guest musicians at each event.

Sonic weavings took us through spaces of peaceful deep introspection, and ecstatic high-volume singing and dancing. About 85 people were in the house, welcomed by warm decor, led by lovely musicians, and blessed with a perfectly tweaked sound system, we all had a wonderful night. Thanks everyone!

Extra love and gratitude to all the volunteers who help make this night what it is.

Om Namah Shivaya!
