TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; The GuruGanesha Band has embarked on its inaugural tour delighting and inspiring audiences up and down the West Coast. This entrancing new group is the latest project from the mind, heart and guitar of the world devotional music pioneer GuruGanesha. Renowned for his work with sublime vocalists like Snatam Kaur, Nirinjan Kaur and Tina Malia, the kundalini yoga expert is now stepping into the limelight with his most recent musical venture, leading a multi-talented ensemble culled from the A-list of players and singers on todayand#8217;s rapidly-expanding kirtan/chant/yoga music scene.

and#8220;This is a project that Iand#8217;ve had in my heart for many years,and#8221; said GuruGanesha. and#8220;The idea behind the GuruGanesha Band is to bring to the world music scene a group that can musically hold its own with the great guitar bands of all time, but instead of using conventional lyrics, singing mantras and divine poetry to transport audiences to a profoundly beautiful and transcendent place. All the spiritual and musical work Iand#8217;ve done for the past 39 years has been preparing me for this.and#8221;

Long noted for the effortless grace and mellifluous lyricism of his acoustic guitar work, GuruGanesha has turned to his first love, the electric guitar, to ignite the incandescent sound of the GuruGanesha Band. With shimmering, glassy tonalities and evocative textures, he takes the vast sonic potential of modern guitar electronics to a new and blissful place. Accompanying him on this musical journey are master cellist/multi-instrumentalist Hans Christian (who has performed in the past with RASA, Krishna Das, Robbie Robertson, Harry Manx), tabla/percussion stalwart Daniel Paul (Jai Uttal, Jaya Lakshmi, Donna De Lory, K. Sridhar), beguiling and unforgettable newcomer Michelle Hurtado on vocals, Spirit Voyage recording artist/ kundalini yoga teacher Sat Kartar Singh on acoustic guitar, and kundalini bass guitar magician Gurusangat Singh. This is going to be an inspirational evening not to miss.

The GuruGanesha Band will perform March 21, 7:30 p.m. at the Tahoe Yoga and Wellness Center in Truckee.
