Amitabhan and Prema lead audiences on a deep journey of the heart with their unique blend of original songs, chants, raps, and rhymes inspired by the timeless wisdom and love at the core of all spiritual traditions.
The warm and sacred space Amitabhan and Prema create has a way of inviting people beyond the words and music to the silent and sublime song of the One Heart. People who enjoy the work of Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Gangaji, Adyashanti, Ken Wilber, or similar teachers will notice the nondual influence on their songwriting. Audiences share laughter, tears, and sweet moments of silence – reminders to stop, take a deep breath, and remember what is important.
“People’s hearts just fall right open. The entire room changes and morphs and I often feel as though I am nestling in a pair of huge, giant, kind hands,” – Lucy French, “Just This” radio
Amitabhan, an award-winning songwriter, has been performing for over 20 years. “With a clear, sweet voice and exquisite lyrics, his music brings the warmth of the sun, stirring tears and laughter and a heart-felt murmur of gratitude. These songs are a precious gift to the precious light in each of us, ” writes Steve Ryals.
