MantraFest takes that idea and goes big. Really big. The 2013 tour, headlined by Deva Premal & Miten with Manose (and Maneesh de Moor) and the GuruGanesha Band is traveling throughout the U.S. and Canada, making a stop at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium on Tuesday, Oct. 1.
The evening opens with a 7 p.m. cello performance by New Age composer/producer Hans Christian. GuruGanesha Band (led by guitarist and devotional music pioneer GuruGanesha Singh) performs at 7:10 p.m. and headliners Deva Premal & Miten with Manose Singh and Maneesh de Moor take the stage at 9 p.m. That group is a world music outfit in the truest sense. German-born, classically trained musician Premal and British-born, singer-songwriter Miten met in 1990 at the ashram of Indian mystic, Osho. Together they've released a series of highly regarded albums. Manrose, from Nepal, is a bamboo flutist; he plays both rock and jazz.
7 p.m., Tickets are $30-$108. ticketmaster.com. — Alli Marshall
