Music

Press


Fans of River Guerguerian, Free Planet Radio and Arundas will find a kindred spirit in Kristin Luna Ray, whose new album incorporates many of the musicians from these groups. Ray's sound fuses elements of world beat (harmonium, sarod, congas and kanun) with aspects of spirituality (songs include "Alleluiah" and "Open to Grace"; the CD case features images of spiritual leaders like Neem Karoli Baba, The Dali Lama and Mother Teresa). But Ray's music is not so heady as to lose the casual listener. Sweet, positive-message lyrics and easy, flowing soundscapes make this an accessible album with wide appeal. kristinray.com. - Mountain Express, Ashveille, NC

Bio

Kristin "Luna" Ray is a singer-songwriter, workshop leader, and advocate for wellness and spiritual growth.

Over the last five years, she has traveled extensively throughout the world sharing music through performance, workshops, kirtans (call and response chanting), and community work with hospice, and in schools with children. She is currently involved in an artist collaboration entitled the Bhakti Vinyasa Project, a Live Music and Yoga Experience.

Luna's latest album, "Where Heaven Meets the Earth" reflects her world travels to India, Costa Rica, and Fiji. The album features a number of prominent musicians playing unique world instruments such as the kanun (Turkey), tablas (India), the Oud (Persia), and numerous others. This world music backdrop supports Luna's folk-inspired acoustic guitar, and lyrical story lines that address themes of spiritual growth.

She has collaborated with and shared the stage with recording artists such as Wah!, David Newman, River Guerguerian, Shimshai, Bhagavan Das, Jai Uttal and Girish.

Luna believes that music is vital to maintaing health and well-being. She is committed to sharing music in a way that awakens a deep remembrance of our truest Self.

When she’s not traveling she resides part time in Asheville, NC, and part time in La Florida, Costa Rica where she co-founded True Nature Education - offering service and educational retreats to individuals around the world. http://TrueNatureEducation.com
