Prajna Vieira, Musician
Prajna is the spiritual name given to Brianna Vieira by her beloved Satguru, Amma. It means “pure consciousness”. A vocalist, composer, multi-instrumentalist, recording artist, teacher and yogini, Prajna’s work is an expression of her love and gratitude to the Divine. Raised by her grandparents on beautiful Vashon Island, near Seattle, she has studied piano, dance, theatre arts, and singing extensively since age four. Today, as lead singer and keyboardist of acclaimed kirtan ensemble Mukti, Prajna knows the pure joy of following her heart’s desire.

Mukti – The World of Kirtan
Sunday, Oct. 24th, 12:15 – 1:45 pm
Mukti (Sanskrit: “liberation”) is an ensemble of accomplished musicians whose spicy blend of tabla rhythms, flamenco guitar, harmonium, piano, and r&b-flavored vocals are breathing new life into the world of kirtan.
Their debut CD, Light of the Sun, is a lush and vibrant collection of original songs in Sanskrit and English, enlivened by the group’s years of collective spiritual practice and deep devotion.
Electrifying in concert, Mukti 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.
“A journey of devotion & inspiration infused with incredible songwriting, masterful musicianship, a myriad of world music flavors, ace production & intertwining vocals that soar into the heavens, yet overflow with earthly delights and words that come straight from the heart. Prajna Vieira has a beautiful voice that is rich, soulfully sweet, and prone to taking off into divine spaces.”

Donna De Lory in Concert
Sunday, Oct 24th, 7:00 pm
Donna De Lory, Musician
Donna De Lory is a singer, songwriter, producer and musician whose voice and music transcends time and genre. Fans will be familiar with Donna from her years of touring with Madonna, but her music has its own compelling vision. With her new release Sanctuary, De Lory has crafted an expressive, spiritually-charged album that embraces both her passionate exploration of yoga and meditation inspired music. A devoted student of yoga and spiritual teachings, she is inspired not only by Western pop, but by Indian devotional music, Sanskrit mantras, Northern African grooves, psychedelic arrangements, and dance beats. The Los Angeles based singer enjoys making what she calls “meditative music” that can smartly – and sensuously – lend itself to dance-friendly re-mixes and can heal through both contemplation and celebration.
In concert Donna delivers a seamless blend of Mantra and English devotional songs accompanied by her own harmonium and her hypnotic band: Cameron Stone on cello, Mark Gorman on bass, and Dave Allen on drums and percussion.
“I’ve always admired Donna’s voice; her songwriting is poignant and heartfelt.”
“Donna’s concerts bring the house down and raise the sky.”
