Healing and transformational mantras infused with state-of-the-art grooves. Kirtronica merges a dance-venue pulse with the devotional chant of India. Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda imbue their music with the power of their own spiritual practice drawing us into movement through mantras, beats, and live instrumentals, and awakening the sacred energy of Kundalini within us. Whether you’re just listening or singing along, each track invokes speciﬁc healing effects on the body, mind, and spirit. This much-anticipated album is sure to be bumping at yoga fests, yoga studios, and divinely attuned house parties across the country, lifting us into ever-higher states of universal love and consciousness.

Jaya Lakshmi, "I have always loved the combination of tribal trance and house beats with Sanskrit mantra and prayer. I knew I was destined to compose my own electronica music, especially after my experience with my former band, Lost at Last. I was involved in much of the composition and production of our music, which laid the foun- dation for me to continue creating music on my own.
Kirtronica is my vision come to fruition—electronica dance music with Sanskrit mantra that manifests through the feminine channel. The sound is a bit slower than club trance and has a different flow from the elec- tronica music that is popular today, but this is what came through me.
I call this album “Kirtronica” because it’s a blend of kirtan and electronica—so be sure to chant while you listen. That’s what this music is for: to activate God consciousness and devotion, or bhakti, and to free the spirit so it can dance with the divine. These ancient Sanskrit mantras work on deep vibrational levels and are designed to liberate the soul by revealing our pure, loving nature.
This album is a dance journey of the heart, mind, and body reuniting with the beloved. I hope Kirtronica activates, ignites, and propels you into deeper love, greater joy, and miraculous healing. All glories to the chanting of the Holy Names, and to groovy dance beats!" credits
