Transmission album will be complete early 2020
We’re revving up the mantramatic Transmission to finish this first album. Adi Mantra (ong namo), Sat Siri, and Long Ek Ong Kar are going to be finished in a couple of weeks and uploaded to Pandora. The last few–a live 22-minute glorious Wahe Guru, a rousing version of Rahke Rakhanahar, and a very loving devotional […]

We are grateful to the […]

To get […]
