LAKSHMI DEVI


Lakshmi Devi is an inspired musician/songwriter who delves into life as a mystical exploration full of passionate expression. She has performed her original music all across the West Coast, Hawaii, and Thailand at various fairs, festivals, cultural arts venues, and private gatherings. Her extensive musical involvements include: producing shows, writing and recording new music, and directing music for ritual performances. She also appears as a guest performer and studio musician for various projects such as: the internationally acclaimed electronic dance band "Medicine Drum", renowned world musician, "Geoffrey Gordon" and popular chanting guru "Krishna Das".

Lakshmi Devi is a vocalist of many styles including Western folk, classical and soul, free-form multi-cultural, and Indian chanting. She is also a rhythm guitarist and soul-inspired hand percussionist influenced by Middle Eastern, African and Salsa rhythms. Although primarily western based, her music reflects her devotion to music the world over through a sometimes interesting inclusion of unusual instruments such as didgeridoo, cello, tabla, and sarod. She also has a self-designed Bachelor of Arts degree in the Anthropology of Music. Her music is best understood by it's spontaneous aspect which most authentically reveals what her lyrics describe: the raw depths and soaring heights of a soul's journey through a human life.

Lakshmi Devi holds performing as a ritual and an opportunity for the mysterious power of music to be invited in and move all who are present. Whether with her full band, with acoustic accompaniment, or solo, her reflective lyrics and trance like vocals intoxicate her audiences inviting them into states of intimate transformation and ecstatic remeberance.

As a performer, she is able to suit the needs of any venue. She is available for booking with her full band, a smaller acoustic arrangement, or solo. She is dynamic and versed in each of these options.

Lakshmi Devi's premier solo CD is currently available as of June 2006
