For the 1st time in Scotland we are delighted to invite you to a Mantra Choir with Jayadeva – the drummer of the famous 70s band – The Rubettes (over 30 million records sold worldwide). Jayadeva is on tour of Scotland doing a Mantra Choir in Aberdeen, Dundee, Findhorn, Inverness, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Mantra Choir is a unique experience in community devotional expression. Sitting somewhere between Rock Choir and the popular kirtan performances of the likes of Krishna Das, Mantra Choir blends the ancient euphoric call and response art of kirtan with upbeat counterpoint melodies to provide a beautifully rich sound and experience.

What is unique about Mantra Choir is that the audience literally become the performers! Everyone can take part regardless of musical ability or previous singing experience.

Jayadev breaks the audience into sections and gives each section a counterpoint of one of his beautiful self-penned mantras to sing. Once that section is comfortably singing their piece, Jayadev moves onto the next section and so on, until everyone is singing blissfully in perfect harmony.

Jayadev will have a group of total musical novices singing like a professional chorus within minutes. Mantra Chorus is an experience not to be missed and one which will stay with the participant for many years to come.

Jayadev has created Mantra Choirs in the UK, Europe, Eastern Europe, Russia and the USA. He is well over half way to achieving his goal of creating 108 Mantra choirs worldwide.

Don’t miss out on this experience of a life time, where literally…. YOU ARE THE MUSIC!

About Jayadev

Jayadev/John Richardson was born and raised in the county of Essex in the south east of England. He taught himself to play the drums at an early age and eventually became a session musician playing on many successful pop records in the UK. He found fame in the 1970’s as the drummer with glam rock band The Rubettes. Between 1974 and 1979 The Rubettes enjoyed chart success with a string of hit records in the UK and Europe including the number one smash hit “Sugar Baby Love” and with over 30 million records sold worldwide and numerous high profile television appearances under their collective belts, were one of the most successful pop bands of that decade.

No previous singing and mantra experience is necessary.
