End of year bhakti bazaar!

Thanks everybody who has come along to sing and dance with us this year, it’s certainly been an uplifting whirlwind from playing in St Laurence church and the Stroud Fringe festival to recording our first album at Ragged Moon studios!

We hope you’ve enjoyed every minute of us as we have appreciated your participation.

The recent event at the Trinity Rooms, Stroud was ecstatic as ever and a big thank you goes to Rachana & Wayne as ever for bringing along Juiciful and serving up dhal and rice all evening!

A Celebration of Love and Peace

Wow, what a fantastic day we all had at the Celebration of Love and Peace in the Trinity rooms, Stroud on Sunday.  So wonderful it was to be graced with music and kirtan from Bharati & Dinesh, bhajans with the Babaji Temple Singers, classic sitar and Buddhist chants by Craig Pruess and a bhakti dance to unleash with the Raga Babas.

Happy birthday and a massive thanks to Jenny and Asta for all the organising and making it happen.

A Fabulous Fringe

Many thanks to all those who came along to dance and sing with us in Bank Gardens during the Stroud Fringe Festival, it was a really unique experience to be up on the big stage in front of loads of smiling faces spreading some bhakti love in the sunshine.  We all had a great time and were very pleased to have Craig Pruess  join us on stage filling in for Martin Soloman on sitar and playing some wonderful trumpet solos.

The festival itself was fantastic example of how much music and diversity we are blessed to have around us in Stroud the whole town came alive in music, dance and celebration!

Debut Album

The Raga Babas debut album is complete and sounds fantastic.

Both relaxing and exhilarating to listen to, the kind of album you can put on and dance around the living room or just sit back, enjoy and let the music wash over.
