An Evening of Kirtan with Shantala- Heather and Benjy Wertheimer with special guest Jared May

Award-winning international artists Heather & Benjy Wertheimer as Shantala open hearts around the world with their soul-stirring vocals, sacred lyrics, exotic instrumentation, and sublime soundscape of musical harmony between East and West.

Kirtan has its roots in the sacred music of ancient India. It is growing rapidly in popularity in the West with the rise of yoga in American culture. The music carries the audience through a journey of etheric beauty, ecstatic percussion, and singing with the devotion of the heart. It is a celebration of life, love, and the beauty of the human spirit. The audience is invited to participate through call-and-response chanting, dance, and meditation.

About the Artists

Benjy and Heather Wertheimer have been leading kirtan (sacred chanting) worldwide since 2001 as the duo Shantala. They are known for their special gift of bringing the audience into a vast and loving experience through their unique blend of exquisite voices with instruments of India and the West. Together they create music with beauty, passion, and reverence. Heather and Benjy have released five beautiful and well-loved albums of sacred chant music since 2003, including Living Waters, Jaya, LIVE in love, Sri, and The Love Window.

Shantala has performed and recorded internationally with such sacred music luminaries as Krishna Das, Deva Premal & Miten, and Jai Uttal. They were named as one of the top Kirtan Wallahs to Watch by Yoga + Joyful Living Magazine. Kirtan is a celebration of spirit through the chanting of sacred names, carrying the audience into a state of heightened awareness, bliss, and devotion. The audience is invited to participate fully through call-and-response chanting, dance, and meditation.

Jared May excels as a performer and recording artist in a huge range of musical styles, including jazz, soul, reggae, gospel, Kirtan , rock, country, live electronic, and hip-hop. In addition to his work as a world-class bassist and educator, he's also a longstanding member of the eminently sustainable rock band, the Ginger Ninjas, who tour the world carrying their gear on bicycles and pedal-powering their shows.
