Sound Meditation, Thomas & Devaki (1).jpg

Kirtan or Sound Meditation is an ancient practice from India which strives to bring peace and release to participants through the exploration of Sanskrit chants. Using various instruments including the Indian harmonium & mridangam, Kirtan facilitators Thomas & Devaki, will guide participants through various melodic repetitions with the aim to find inner peace and a sense of togetherness.

About Thomas & Devaki Music

Thomas & Devaki are musical and life partners, hailing from Trinidad & Tobago and Vancouver, Canada respectively. The couple are veterans in the music industry, spending 10 years in their touring band, Samsara in Canada, founding the Komasket Music Festival and members of rock reggae band Stunflower here in London.

Recording and playing with some of the world’s most prominent artists including The Wailers, Jon Anderson (Yes), Buffy St Marie, Arrested Development, the pair have been exploring spirituality along-side their musical journey for the last 30 years. Both met in the Hare Krishna faith, and while no longer a part of this have been infused with the chanting/Kirtan practice as a way of connecting to themselves and others. Thomas doubles as a certified Ashtanga Yoga teacher and Devaki is a trained Hatha Yoga teacher and Classical Odissi Dancer and teacher.

The meditations last an hour and will run at 1pm, 2.30pm and 4pm.
