Over the years quite a few people have asked me for other artists who make deep, conscious and spiritual music so I thought: Hey, let's create a list with some of the awesome musicians I have met (or still have to meet) whose melodies & messages move me so much I have to dance!
Absolute dream collabo.
Deep wisdom, harmonizing vocals and catchy melodies.
You hear and feel the love in this project which is hopefully just the first of many to come!
Super famous! If you don't know him already, you will now be submerged in his flow...
Also he wrote a heart touching autobiography, teaches yoga and creates art 360 degrees!
Heaven X started his music career as a producer for underground hip hop artists, and after touring with KRS-One and joining The Temple of Hip Hop, HX lived as a monk for six years in India and the US. Since his return from the monastery, Heaven X recorded his debut album "The Enlightenment LP" and launched a health + wellness startup that teaches children how to meditate. Support!
Groove machine with a lot of soul - Or Soul inside a groove machine? Hehe. Former monk from NYC. I'm still recovering from one of his shows with Antarma (in London).
Also known as The Wicked Hangin Chads, this family band pretty much feels like family to me! We met in Boston and I can't wait to see them again! Music is literally their life.
Reggae, Ska, and Dub with a message for humanity.
Billy Holiday's soul in the body of a skinny young English lad? Yes, it's possible.
Important BTW: There are a million more videos on his FB page: facebook.com/kelisklips
No words can do justice to her, her music and this epic video.
Dhanya is the daughter of two-time Latin Grammy winner, Ilan Chester and wife to musician Bali Rico from the Mayapuris. I warned you.
When we met in London "back in the day", this sweet soul literally saved my life and taught me one of the most important things in life: To make music with my heart & soul.
London singer with talent from Outer Space. Mentored by Robbie Williams, then embarked on his own spiritual journey. Also check out his song "Swimming", one of my favorites.
I met this one of a kind singer in London after completing my yoga course (and she was about to start hers). Originally from Sweden, she is a star whose soulful music gets under your skin. Goosebumps every time.
Original eclectic American Music born out of an American experience. Songs by singer-songwriter/ guitarist Michael Cassidy and his partner in crime Joie Frye. His first release, "A Change of Heart" (1976), was a landmark album for this genre and a breakthrough for devotee songwriters. More on www.averagesoul.net
Born and raised in South Africa, Simha MC from an early age recognized the absurdity of bodily consciousness and racial segregation. So even before his stopover in London, he started his journey of elevating his spiritual consciousness. Now he lives with his family in India where he continues to inspire with beats & bullets of Vedic wisdom. Mic drop! Jaw drop! Check out his Instagram where he is more active than on Youtube.
Growing up in a mix of London street culture, spiritual circles, festivals and squats, Antarma first turned his energy to music & mantras to help him find strength to meet his own struggles. He's a full on power house! Check out his wise rhymes and his wild drumming!
Psychedelic rock band from the UK mixed and stirred with Ancient Indian philosophy. Yes, they still exist - thank God!
My favorite Beatle. Visionary, gentle, moving songwriter, singer, seeker and gardener! Don't miss to read his autobiography!
Legendary heart core punk rock from NY. Straight edge front singer Ray Cappo aka Raghunath Das now runs a successful podcast called "Wisdom of the Sages" and teaches yoga. Highly recommended, also for softies like me. If you like more hardcore check out the band "108".
Sri & Joakin are high energy! Watch out for EDM, electro kirtan and a lot of fun.
Before we met I already knew and cherished his music and art work so much. Brillant lyrics and dope beats that reflect a beautiful mind and wisdom beyond his years.
The Norah Jones of Croatia! Signed to Aquarius Records Zagreb she sings in the local Croatian language, but those who understand, they will understand. And those who don't speak Croatian will still appreciate her mesmerizing voice and beautiful music videos.
Tiefsinnige Texte mit Charme und Humor (ja, auf Deutsch).
Sein Album hatte ich auf Dauerschleife. Hier einer meiner Lieblingssongs ("Endstation").
If you know someone awesome who should be on this list, write me here.
