Heaven Meets Earth Yoga & Unity On The Northshore Present


Mantra Music Concert with Seán Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band

"The much-beloved band evoke, conjure and celebrate that universally felt yet impossible-to-define essence that lies at the heart of all things, what Bob Marley once called ‘a natural mystic, flowing through the air.’ " – Alan di Perna (Rolling Stone, Creem, Billboard)
"A joy to listen to for anyone who appreciates wildly creative music." – Yoga Journal

"A hybrid of East and West that will bring joy to your heart and get your body boogieing. – Yoga Chicago
Celebrate the spirit of unity with a night of interactive, soul-stirring music from Seán Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band. Experience heart-expanding ancient mantras and global chants given new voice through dynamic songs that merge conscious lyrics and New Orleans roots, rock, gospel, and world grooves.

The band’s acclaimed latest album ‘Mystery,’ was named one of the best albums of the year in Louisiana music by Offbeat Magazine. Their previous album Unity, dedicated to celebrating the threads between the world’s spiritual traditions, debuted #1 on the iTunes World Music Chart and #3 on Billboard. They are a featured artist on Putumayo World Music, and are the first mantra-based band to ever play the New Orleans Jazz Festival.

The band includes Seán (vocals and harmonium); Alvin Young (6 string fretless bass & guitar); Gwendolyn Colman (percussion & vocals) and Narada Wise (drums) 


About Seán Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band
New Orleans’ Seán Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band create a universal style of spiritual music filtered through the depth, sincerity, and soul of their own American and ancestral roots. Their music merges conscious lyrics, sacred chants from the spiritual traditions of yoga and beyond, and roots, rock, gospel, and global grooves. They are known for creating interactive, soul-stirring songs to dance and sing along with as well as to grieve and heal.

In 2005, Seán founded the band as a post-hurricane Katrina philanthropic music project, raising funds across the country for relief from the devastation of the storm. The theme of searching for grace and inspiration amidst challenge and destruction has permeated their music ever since. In 2007, they released their first album, ‘Calling The Spirits’ which caught the ears of pioneering Canadian record producer Terry McBride, founder of Nettwerk Records and Lilith Fair. McBride signed the band to Nettwerk for the release of their follow-up album, ‘Devaloka.’ When Putumayo World Music founder, Dan Storper heard ‘Devaloka,’ he chose music off the record to be featured on Putumayo’s first compilation of music designed for yoga. Inclusion on three Putumayo albums has helped propel the band’s music to listeners across the globe. Their album ‘Unity’ debuted #1 on the iTunes World Music Chart and #3 on Billboard. Their album ‘Mystery’ was just released on Be Still Records and was named one of the best albums in Louisiana music by Offbeat Magazine. They have recently collaborated on remixes with DJ Drez, Ben Leinbach, and Starita. They are a favorite headliner at conscious music festivals across the U.S. and have played The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on multiple occasions.
