Om Shanti Om has been playing and performing devotional music for some years now:
Marilyn (Em) Walker on guitar, percussion, vocals; Edgar Hann on button accordion;
Adam Huber on guitar, vocals; and Terri Wyllie on tabla/drums, vocals.
They draw on various spiritual and cultural traditions and faiths - Christian, Tibetan,
Hindu, gospel, Celtic and folk - from traditional and contemporary artists such as
Krishna Das and Emmy Lou Harris; and from Mātā Amritānandamayī Devī who is
known as Amma, the Hugging Saint.
A performance might include Amazing Grace, Drifting Too Far From The Shore, My
Foolish Heart, and so on while bhajans (sung prayers) such as Sri Radhe Shyam and
Amma Amma Taye are sung as call and response. Song sheets are provided.
The blend combines the musicians’ personal backgrounds in spirituality and religion
while opening up new venues of devotion for the audience.
This event is open to everyone, with no charge. A small donation towards the upkeep of the building will be gladly accepted. Donations may be made at the event or as outlined on our home page.
