Gina Salá is a vocalist, composer, teacher, and kirtan leader with a repertoire spanning 23 languages. Born into a musical family, she spent her early childhood years chanting daily in Swami Sivananda Radha’s ashram. She deepened her practices living in the Himalayas at Buddhist monastery in Nepal (Kopan), with H.W.L. Poonjaji (“Papaji”), and through ongoing study with her esteemed sanskrit, tantra, and Indian classical voice teachers in India (including Vagesh Shastriji and Pt. Ritwik Sanyalji).
Gina Salá’s warmth, humor, and wealth of musical experiences have led her from chanting with swamis and living in huts to programs at the United Nations in New York City, singing as lead vocalist for Cirque du Soleil, and more.
She offers CDs, international retreats in sound wellness, mantra and chant, and an annual “River of Sound” tour in India, as well as private sessions in harmonium, Sanskrit mantra, Sound Tantra, and voice via skype. Her passion is helping others to awaken to love and oneness through song.
