Visvambhar and Vrinda Sheth
Since his birth,Vish has been immersed in kirtan. Singing the Sanskrit mantras in their original tunes came natural to him from a very early age. The mridunga drum has become his inseparable companion. All through her life, Vrinda has taken pleasure in singing the holy mantras of kirtan and dancing to its sacred rythms. With her sweet voice, she imbibes all the goodness and love of those mantras to manifest. As a professional dancer trained in Chennai, India, Vrinda choreographs colorful presentations Her dancing is so delicate and light that she appears to fly across the stage, transcending the ordinary law of gravity.
Vish and Vrinda are travelers, kirtan gypsies, the breed of performers who stop keeping count of how many countries they’ve performed in. “There is a small village in India, about an hour outside of Mayapur that holds this prophecy. It’s about two hundred years old,” Vish explains, “It says that the thunder of the mridanga drum will resonate throughout the entire world. We want to be a part of that.”
“The great thing about world music is its accessibility.” Vrinda says, “It doesn’t matter where you come from, what language you speak, your cultural background. This kind of music speaks to everyone. Our goal was to make an album that reaches into that common bond the citizens of earth all share, a love for beautiful sound.”
