LESS STRESS MORE WAH! is a bumper sticker her fans made. It sums up what people are feeling about Wah! and her music, books, and lectures. After 20 years touring and performing throughout the world, she wants to get at the root of helping people relax and destress.
First, the music. If you’ve been in a yoga class in the last five years, you have no doubt heard her music. The first female to bring kirtan music [call-and-response chanting performed in India's devotional traditions] to the West in the 1990’s, Wah! has been playing bass guitar with her wildly joyful rock band at yoga festivals and centers around the U.S. since 1997. She has also consistently offered music and albums to the therapeutic market; her Savasana CDs have sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.
A few years ago Wah! took time to sit with people – just sitting, and singing, toning, and leading simple meditative exercises. This, combined with many years leading yoga and creating relaxation music led to healing workshops, healing retreats and the Healing Concert, a multi-media concert using projections, slow moving laser lights and live music by Wah! to inspire world peace and peace within.
“Our lives are filled with distractions and disruptions that take us away from ourselves and leave us with an experience of overwhelming stress and disconnection." Wah! feels a new kind of musical experience is necessary. “I want to improve how we live our lives on this planet and create events which inspire peace and altruistic cooperation.”
Her new book, Healing: A Vibrational Exchange introduces audiences to the concepts behind her music, focusing on ways you can create more space and healing in your life. Her lectures have been welcomed at Princeton University, Loyola Marymount University and at EXPOs and conferences around the country. Her workshops help people develop tools for self-healing and communication.
She has performed at Fiske Planetarium, Franklin Institute, South Florida Museum's Bishop Planetarium, Omega Institute, Globe Sound Healing Conference, NJ State Museum in Trenton, Hoyt Sherman Place, and Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. In concerts, festivals, lectures and workshops, Wah! uses her deep understanding of music and healing to create profound and transformative events.
