'When she sings and plays one feels that one is eavesdropping on the music of the Gods. She needs no recommendation, one only has to have ears to hear her and one knows immediately that we are in the presence of grace.’ - Krishna Das

Jahnavi Harrison is a bhakti yoga practitioner who has been born and raised with the vibrant, dynamic practice of kirtan - the call and response singing of sacred mantras, accompanied by soulful music. She has travelled the world sharing this practice with diverse audiences, from yoga studios, music festivals, temples and schools, to prisons and hospitals. She has travelled internationally with the sacred music bands, ‘Gaura Vani and As Kindred Spirits’, and ‘The Hanumen', and has regularly collaborated with kirtan artists like Krishna Das, Shyam Das, Wah!, Shantala and Jai Uttal. 

She has regularly performed live music and kirtan for yoga classes and workshops at Wanderlust Yoga and Music Festival, Bhaktifest, Burning Man Festival, Omega Institute, Kripalu Center, NYC and Exhale, Los Angeles. 

'Jahnavi Harrison is a being of total devotion. Listen to her sing and let the doors of your heart fly open.’ - Jai Uttal
