The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


Kaivaly's first CD is "Songs of Vasistha".


Feeling a bit camera shy


The “Songs of Vasistha” were inspired by the teachings and stories of Vasistha’s Yoga, a text that is described as the earliest work with the highest wisdom of Vedanta, or Jnana yoga. It is the instruction of the Sage Vasistha to Sri Rama as recorded by the poet Valmiki. In more recent times, this wisdom has been lived by Ramana Maharshi, J. Krishnamurti, and Sri Nisargadatta. This music offers a form of satsanga with these holy ones.

The songs were composed in a few short weeks (after a lifetime of contemplation and self-inquiry) and were recorded in the high desert of Arivaca, Arizona ~ in the energetic shadow of the sacred mountain Baboquivari. They are performed by the band Kaivaly at the Desert Light Labyrinth in Arivaca.

Mary, Charlie and Peter all live in Arivaca, an oasis of wildlife and a wildly diverse community isolated in the vast Sonoran desert. The Doc joins the band from Tucson. Desert mysticism drives their music.
