Katie Wise and Bhakti Explosion

Kirtan rockers Katie Wise & Bhakti Explosion bring rock and rootsy world soul influences to their live kirtans. Hailing from Boulder, CO, this bhakti-infused powerhouse band has been featured at festivals across the U.S. Their debut album, Lovolution, produced by grammy-nominee Ben Leinbach, features angelic harmonies soaring over an array of western guitars and Indian instruments such as sitar, dilruba, dotar, harmonium, and tabla drums. With guest vocals by kirtan legend Jai Uttal, the album has already received substantial acclaim from fellow kirtan artists, Yoga Journal, Om Times, and Yoga International. Kirtan leader David Newman calls classically-trained lead singer and yoga teacher Katie Wise a “fresh and exciting new voice in the mantra music genre…a solid force and presence for those who look to their music for peace, heart, groove, and spiritual inspiration.”
