Ananda are a group of male singers and musicians based in various locations around Great Britain. We arrange the beautiful and haunting melodies of Sri Chinmoy's music for guitar, harmonium, bouzouki, flute, keyboard, percussion and voice. All the songs have a meditative quality and we try to express this quality whilst performing.
Most of the songs we sing are in Bengali which is a language renowned for its poetic beauty. Other songs are in Sanskrit or English.
Ananda regularly perform in meditation classes throughout the UK. So many people find listening to true spiritual music one of the best ways to meditate. In fact, it was people coming to these classes that encouraged us to produce our CDs.
We also occasionally perform concerts. We have played in Lincoln Cathedral, 'The Hidden Gardens' in Glasgow, the Louvre in Paris, the Kunstlerhaus in Vienna and Rydal cave in the Lake District to name but a few!
