Experience the pure beauty of raga chanting and singing. A raga is an Indian classical musical scale that takes the mantra to deep level. The spiritual vibrations of every note evokes inner peace, love and happiness.
At the workshop we will be exploring Rag Malahari and the song Lambo Dara.
Lambo Dara is an ancient Indian classical song to Ganesha, the remover of obstacles. Written in the 15th century, this beautiful song is sung in the raga which has a purifying quality to destroy impurities.
We will learn the song and scale, singing in call and response style. After that I’ll invite you to lay down and relax deeply as I sing sacred mantras to you for deep healing.You will emerge feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and happy!

What Is A Raga
A raga is a musical scale that carries spiritual vibrations. Each raga has a unique sound, quality and energy and is powerful sound medicine.
When I sing a raga, I experience a complete change in mood.From sad to happy. From tired to energised.From restless to calm.From disconnected to loving. Raga is profound sound medicine. As a musician, I was deeply inspired by these sounds and began studying Indian classical music. These songs have deeply transformed me and I love teaching others how to chant and sing them.Anyone can sing.If you can speak, you can chant and you can sing.When you make these sacred sounds and melodies with your own voice, you are soothing your nervous system and the mind naturally follows.
Calming, meditative, relaxing, and uplifting are some ways people describe Cafe Mantra Music because they have experienced the healing energy of sacred sound. You see, my music is not only beautiful, but scientifically created to harmonise your whole being … your mind, body and soul.
Are you experiencing stress, anxiety, fear, illness, uncertainty? If so, this negative energy impacts your mind and subtle frequencies to go out of harmony, out of tune. Much like a guitar that needs tuning regularly, so do our minds. Mantra music awakens the vibrations of peace that are deeply embedded in you, and you come back in tune with nature and feel relaxed, content and happy. Magic!
How Is Cafe Mantra Music Unique?
Cafe Mantra Music uses a special tempo of 60 beats per minute which is the resting heart rate. Just by listening, your subtle energies come into alignment with this innate rhythm. This tempo coupled with the healing vibrations of Sanskrit mantras, soothes your mind and nervous system without effort. All !you need do is listen, let go and allow the music to take you on its healing journey. Easy!
Everything I create follows the ancient Vedic sciences of yoga, mantra and Ayurveda. As a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner, my knowledge and experience couples with a deep devotion to bring a richness, depth and spiritual energy to my music, teaching and cooking with the intention to help you nourish your entire being.
Blessings for your peace, health and happiness!
