WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER THIS MANTRA

When asked during the Get Back sessions if he liked India, Ringo Starr replies, “Not really.” Yet the influence of Indian devotional music and culture is still a presence throughout the documentary, from John Lennon’s “Across the Universe” (with its “Jai guru deva om” incantation) to George Harrison’s burgeoning solo work (not to mention the home movies from the band’s India trip).

If you’re interested in how the yogic tradition is being carried forward in contemporary music, we invite you to check out “Ra Ma Da Sa,” the beautiful, psychedelic new track from Jai Anand (on Be Why Music). A yogi and co-founder of Club Kundalini, a global online community devoted to healing and uplift, Jai Anand (née Julie Yannatta) has collaborated with Japanese musician/arranger Heday Ikumo to create a powerful symphonic manifestation of the Ra Ma Da Sa mantra, said to embody the radiant healing energy of the universe, which no less a tastemaker than KCRW's Chris Douridas called "stunning."

Since we could use all the radiant healing energy we can get right now (particularly after polishing off those leftovers), we present it to you here with our compliments.
