Join us for an exciting night of singing, dancing, and celebrating! New Orleans mantra musicians Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band lead us to experience freedom and joy through the practice of kirtan, the yoga of ecstatic chant. Hemalayaa guides us in movement to begin this evening of fun.

Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band are known for their high energy, uplifting, kirtan sound, merging mantras, rock, funk, and world grooves steeped in their New Orleans roots. They inspire people to sing, dance, and joyfully celebrate. The trio features Sean Johnson on vocals and harmonium, Gwendolyn Colman on vocals and percussion, and Alvin Young on fretless bass and guitar. They are the first kirtan band to ever play The New Orleans Jazz Festival.
