Shonali and the Goddess Choir
Shonali Banerjee and the Goddess Choir are thrilled to be returning to Chantlanta having made their debut in March 2020 exactly at the moment when Covid shut down just about everything. The songs Shonali will be sharing are meant to be sung in community where the interweaving of parts and harmonies has the potential to open up our hearts, to soothe our souls, to acknowledge our deep truths and longings for connection, freedom, forgiveness, empowerment and joy. There will be no spiritual bypass in this set of music. We will turn towards truth, the challenges of our times and we will sing our hearts out in hopes of breakthrough and change. Through song we prepare ourselves to face the world as it is and to love with all of our hearts.
The Spirit Messengers
The Spirit Messengers are a high vibration power trio out of Atlanta, GA, who combine the mediums of ecstatic, sacred chants in Sanskrit with psychedelic, progressive rock music to open the channels of mystic energy that allow more consciousness to enter the world. The band features Ian Boccio (vocals, synthesizers, harmonium), Don Martin (vocals, guitars, mandolin), and Stan Holt (drums, percussion). The music of The Spirit Messengers speaks greater truths to a troubled world, offering ways to let go of the madness that surrounds us and step into the possibility of unity that lies just below the surface of our reality.
Flying Mystics is an instrumental trio based out of Atlanta. .. Shamanic journey, sonic healing, higher consciousness and world music are common descriptions of their unique sound. Aquarius Magazine calls the group "Musical Shamans, instrumental and technical precision while maintaining an artistic and creative flow makes their recorded and live work an experience of transcendence, magic and wonder."
They present their original and transporting music as an offering to the listener. The synergistic sound these three accomplished musicians create, according to writer Glenn H. Mullin is "Visionary and esoteric while remaining sensually intense and spiritually powerful" Their infectious rhythm & groove makes dancing inevitable and elevates the soul. Featuring Flournoy Holmes (flutes, drums, percussion), Zepi Morelli (guitar), and
special quest Danny Stern (percussion).
