Discovering the Inner connection through the emotions  and vibrations of music.

I have been exploring the world of music through the Piano, Saxophone, Native American flute, Tibetan Singing Bowls and Kirtan, creating the vibration of healing, compassion and connection to the divine.  A journey of feeling and expressing pure connection that helps us to transcend the distractions of the world and find the moment of the now.   Our intentions create our world and I hope my music fosters a positive light to remind the soul of wonderful in life.

Currently I’m focused on creating Kirtan and the meditative through Tibetan Singing Bowls.

Community Kirtan at Yoga Source, hosted by Brad, Lydia and Kat, 

Yoga Source, 7:00pm - 9:00pm Saturday July 16th, 2016
1500 S Big Bend Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63117
 
We're inviting everyone to contribute in creating this Kirtan. 
Local Kirtan Walla, Bradford Smith will set the stage for creating community through Kirtan. Inviting those with a chant to lead and share to help us create an intention of light for everyone to know their connection to the divine. Bring your instrument to sing along with, or you can borrow my harmonium.    
Kirtan is call and response singing of the names of the Divine, or God, sung in the ancient poetic language of sanskrit.  This is a practice that started in 15th century India as a yogic practice of devotion to the higher self, or Bhakti Yoga, as a way of knowing and feeling the Divine in our lives. Through the repetition of the chanting a meditative vibe organizes and is fostered through the group, lifting us up, helping us to relax and let go of the negative that is dragging us down, and ultimately knowing the divine within.    

Bradford Smith and the Bhavantu Band

Developing a Kirtan sound with influences from traditional Haidakhan chants along with original songs, Bradford and the Bhavantu Band are creating a unique and accessible sound that will inspire the beauty and joy of Ecstatic Kirtan and Bhakti music.

After discovering the world of Kirtan, or Bhakti music while touring performing his Native American Flute music he put his heart and energies in creating the connection with the audience that magically happens during a Kirtan.  Performing mostly in the St. Louis Missouri region he recently returned from Bhakti Fest Midwest performing with the Bhavantu Band.
