Raised in a family of bhakti yoga practitioners at Bhaktivedanta Manor in Hertfordshire, England, Jahnavi is a writer, musician and artist who aims to channel her creative expression as a path to self-realization and service.
Jahnavi has travelled internationally with the sacred music band, Gaura Vani and As Kindred Spirits, for five years, presenting the dynamic stories and spiritual culture of India for a fresh, contemporary audience. She has also been a member of sacred music collective Sita and the Hanumen, and has often collaborated with kirtan artists like Krishna Das, Shyam Das, Wah!, Shantala and Jai Uttal. In 2015 she released her debut sacred music album, Like a River to the Sea, and also took part in the Grammy nominated, Bhakti Without Borders album.
Jahnavi now helps to run Kirtan London, Kirtan Vancouvers sister project, which aims to make sacred mantra music accessible and relevant to a wider audience, including schools, mental health institutions and outdoor events.
