The second stop on her tour at Downward Dog is sure to be a special one!
Canadian Devotional Chant artist, Brenda McMorrow, began her musical career in the early 1990’s as a singer/songwriter. She co-founded the London, Ontario folk/rock band Julia Propeller – a campus radio and CBC favourite – which opened for and shared festival rosters with acts like Ani Difranco, Blue Rodeo and Bruce Cockburn.
Brenda’s rich musical exploration led her from folk to bluegrass to jazz and now – as meditation, yoga and expanding consciousness have become integral parts of her life – her true heart offering is to share her unique blend of original melodies, world beats and sacred Indian devotional chants.
Brenda collaborates with producer Ben Leinbach (Jai Uttal/Deva Premal) and travels the world sharing her love of Bhakti! 2011 will find Brenda at Bhakti festivals in Europe (details to be announced soon).
“The beauty and sacred power of ancient Sanskrit chant form the foundation for this contemporary suite of folk-influenced songs rich in acoustic and ambient electronic textures. Produced by the esteemed Ben Leinbach (Deva Premal/Jai Uttal), these songs of devotion, expansion and infinite possibility lead us to the essence of who we really are — that place where love abounds. Featuring: Grammy winning cellist David Darling, bansuri master Manose and Juno-nominated global electronica visionary Eccodek.”
