Now, with a deep love and recognition of the healing power of sound, she is invited to travel worldwide to share her unique blend of original,
folk-inspired melodies and sacred Indian devotional chants. Brenda is known for her unique and warmly embracing style of mantra music, a mix of acoustic folk,
world rhythms and ancient Indian mantras engagingly presented with a sweetly introspective singer-songwriter’s sensibility. Yoga Journal describes Brenda as having “a knack for expressing the deepest realizations in the sparsest lyrics”. As spiritual teacher Ram Dass has said: “Brenda has a gift”, and her music has been touching people’s hearts worldwide.
With 5 celebrated devotional chant albums, Brenda is a featured artist on the White Swan Records roster, a Colorado label well known for it’s high-profile yoga-inspired artists like Deva Premal.
Brenda has been invited to Festivals and events across North and Latin America, Europe and Asia as part of her most recent tour schedule.
Kirtan is a practice of Bhakti Yoga (the Yoga of Devotion). It is a participatory, call and response form of singing which is expanding throughout North America as westerners discover it’s uplifting, healing and joyous effects. Open to participants of all religions or no religion at all, Kirtan is easy to learn and participate in. The lead singer sings simple and beautiful melodies and the crowd responds either by memory or by using lyric sheets provided. Kirtan is a beautiful opportunity for people to come together to open their hearts and chant the many names of the Divine. In Kirtan, the lines between musician and audience are blurred. The audience members play a vital role in the music through their singing, clapping, dancing and the transformative devotional energy that they each bring to the experience. Brenda explains, “Singing together– chanting the Divine names – encourages our hearts to open and the beauty of our true beings to shine!”
