Radha: “The late Alice Coltrane, aka Turiyasangitananda, was one of the most enlightened people I have ever met in my life. My love for the harp was inspired by her. She set my musical journey in the right direction, liberating me from stereotypical modes of music. What joy it was to have kirtan with her playing the organ! It was a wonderful experience that transcends description.
“In this collection, Surya and I seek to share that joy and we offer our deference to Alice Coltrane’s original style of playing ageless bhajans.” Surya: “On the 12th of January, 2007, the Lord saw fit to deem His instrument, Swamini Turiyasangitananda, the distinction of a completed lifetime... That moment – forever in my heart and soul – provided the inspiration for this project. On the 12th of January exactly a year later, while visiting the sacred land of Prashanthi Nilayam in India, the chords and task were inspirationally given. I offer this collection of bhajans to the feet of Sai Baba and my dear Guru, Swamini.“
Radha feels it is very important to promote the style of harp playiing that Alice Coltrane originated. She often .plays harp at special events throughout the year.
The Eternal Soul Players
These musicians are some of the best in their genres. They hail from around the world: Aboriginal Australia, South India, Taiwan, and the U.S.A. Their love for music is evident from their playing. Surya Botofasina has stepped into the role of arranger and keyboardist. Muthu Kumar plays tablas whenever he is in the United States for our latest recording project of 'kirtan' bhajan music.
At times Cecil McBee Jr. joins us on electric bass and Ming Freeman has bought his wonderful keyboard skills to our 'kirtan' recording project.
Russell Smith from Australia plays the authentic didgeredoo on some of the new 'kirtan' tracks.
We remain eclectic and open to wonderful musicians from around the world and around the block.
My vision is to launch a tour of music that would go to select colleges and universities, throughout the US and give concerts for positive change in our future. It is my observation that singing the music from Songs for the Eternal Soul, and the level of musicianship and the vibrational force of the lyrics are enough to uplift any listener.
One evening concert per college or university in 40 or 50 states and also an afternoon concert at a local elementary/middle/ or high school with a Q&A and cultural exchange, because half of the folks in the band are from other countries and it would certainly bring the world to the youth in an organic and personal way.
