Originally a folk and pop singer/songwriter, it was when Brenda participated in her first Sanskrit chant while attending a Yoga workshop almost 20 years ago, that she had a profound knowing her musical journey was leading her to places more expansive and heart-opening than she had ever imagined. Brenda remembers: “It was a very simple chant, and at the time I had no idea what it signified: all I knew was that every cell in my body started vibrating, and I felt absolute joy”. While in India soon thereafter, Brenda began combining her own songwriting with ancient Sanskrit chants – and she has been flowing with this divine wave of Bhakti energy ever since. Brenda explains the magic of kirtan singing like this: “Singing together– chanting the Divine names – encourages our hearts to open and the beauty of our true beings to shine!” With 5 celebrated devotional chant albums, she is regularly performing at Bhakti Yoga festivals and events across North America, Europe and Asia.
