“Mukti” is the acclaimed kirtan ensemble fronted by vocalist Prajna Vieira, guitarist Donald Fontowitz and tabla player Ramana Erickson. Frequently joined by a rotating cast of guest artists (including David Balakrishnan, Ben Leinbach and others). their spicy blend of tabla rhythms, flamenco guitar, harmonium, piano, and r&b-flavored vocals create a rich foundation for both traditional Indian and modern original kirtans.
Electrifying in concert, the band draws from a substantial (and growing) catalogue of original material— regularly taking the stage with distinguished guest musicians and singers from diverse musical and spiritual backgrounds. Here, the songs take a spontaneous journey through driving, rhythmic highs into soulful, sublime spaces that lead effortlessly into meditation.
