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.

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.
