Earth Day Livestream Concert
Instructor: Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band
Join us for our first ever livestream concert celebrating Earth Day, broadcast from Unity On The North Shore Church in Evanston, IL featuring interactive, soul-stirring ancient mantras given new voice through dynamic songs that merge conscious lyrics and New Orleans roots, rock, gospel, and world grooves. In honor of Earth Day, for each ticket sold, a tree will be planted! We’re also celebrating the release of our new album ‘Mystery,’ named one of the best albums of the year in Louisiana music by Offbeat Magazine.
Tonight’s concert will feature Seán Johnson on vocals and harmonium, Gwendolyn Colman on percussion and vocals, Alvin Young on guitar and 6 string fretless bass, Narada Wise on drums, and multi-instrumentalist Chris Rosser on bass, guitar, keyboards, oud, and dotar.
“The music of Seán Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band flows from the mystical confluence of the Ganges River and the Mississippi Delta—the deep bhakti tradition of Indian devotional chanting fused with the cultural cross-currents that so enrich the music of their hometown of New Orleans. The yoga community’s much-beloved band evoke, conjure and celebrate that universally felt yet impossible-to-define essence that lies at the heart of all things, what Bob Marley once called “a natural mystic, flowing through the air.” — Alan di Perna
“Their music will ignite the world…a hybrid of East and West that will bring joy to your heart and get your body boogieing.” – Debi Buzil, Yoga Chicago
The concert will be broadcast live from Unity On The North Shore Church in Evanston, IL, and a recording will be available to purchasers for one week after the event.
