Indy Welcomes Legendary GuruGanesha Band

The GuruGanesha Band, an internationally known and loved Kundalini band, will play their first performance in Indianapolis at 8 p.m. on October 21 at Unitarian Universalist Church as part of their People of the Love Tour.

“The intention behind this music is to touch, uplift and serve,” says GuruGanesha. “The more we surrender and the more we trust in this divine will unfolding, that I believe to be a benevolent force, the better the music becomes.”

The GuruGanesha Band plays at large sacred music festivals, such as Sat Nam Fests and Bhaktifests. The guitars are smooth and vibrant, at times reminiscent of Jerry Garcia from the Grateful Dead, offering a unique blend of mantra-based rock. Often, they are heard in yoga classes.

Their music is not a call-and-response-style like Kirtan, an ancient Indian devotional music, but more interactive in inviting audiences to chant and sing along during the songs, plus meditate and dance. Those that have experienced GuruGanesha Band concerts already know that the group mantras and melodies lift the collective spirit to a higher plane.

The mantras are within the Kundalini yoga lineage. Indianapolis has a budding Kundalini yoga community with classes offered at Nourish Wellness, Embarque, Cityoga, Source Yoga and Dragonfly 360.

General admission: $30, VIP tickets: $60, People of Love Pack: $90 (4 GA tickets). Location: 615 W. 43rd St. For more information including tickets and music samples, visit For information on Kundalini yoga classes at area studios, visit the Indy Kundalini Yoga Organization on Facebook.
