Dance in the bliss and connect to your natural voice

Join Kevin James and Susana Rodrigez as they present a powerful homecoming concert of mantra and heartsongs, deep connection and community – special guest for this event is Oka’s Chris Lane.

Kevin returns after a three-year nomadic journey immersed in world fusion of traditional Indian Kirtan, Rainbow Bhajans, Celtic drums, Sufi chants and folk music. Kevin offers a co-creative, empowering experience that invites you to sit back, sing the sweet melodies, soaring chants, or dance in the bliss, diving deep into the profound silence that follows a Shakuhachi flute meditation – a sound journey to the Himalayas.

Kevin is presenting a workshop where you will be supported to open up to an effortless way of singing, clear emotional blockages, tune up with the power of sacred sounds and mantras and to connect to your natural voice with emotion and feeling. 

Chai and cake flood-fundraiser concert on Tuesday 7 March – full moon at St Johns Hall, Mullum. Open 6.30pm.

Workshop, Saturday 11 March, 2.45–6pm for all levels/ages. Dinner preordered or BYO. More information and tickets: kevinjamesmusic.com/mullumbimby2023/
