Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band
New Orleans mantra musicians Sean Johnson and The Wild Lotus Band (Alvin Young and Gwendolyn Colman) are celebrated as one of the most exciting and musically dynamic kirtans artists in the west. Their innovative approach to chant music transcends genres—shades of rock, jazz, funk, and folk styles merge evocatively with the magic of the mantras. They are the first kirtan artists to ever be invited to play The New Orleans Jazz Festival. Yoga Journal has praised the band, calling them “A joy to listen to whether you’re a yogi or anyone who appreciates wildly creative music.” Yoga Chicago says, "Their music will ignite the world...a hybrid of East and West that will bring joy to your heart and get your body boogieing."
