"Ric Veda Loves You"

Ric Veda Loves You is a duo from Los Angeles, composed of harmonium player/multi-instrumentalist, Ric Veda, and percussionist, j.stare. The overall feel can be compared to Donovan meets Jane’s Addiction with a bit of Psychedelic Furs retro-punkiness thrown in for good measure. Folky and fresh, this is the music that young people are making right at this moment. Ric Veda played with LA’s Temple Bhajan Band, learning the ropes of Sanskrit and Vedic chant, plus the boon of devotion. There’s no chant, only songs of a seeker. The lyrics reflect the art of living in this world while asking the age-old question: Who am I really? A diamond in the rough? Maybe, but well worth a listen. - Debi Buzil

Ric Veda started playing around LA in 2002 with the Temple Bhajan Band, where he learned how to sing sanskrit bhajans and play various indian instruments. He very soon after started playing solo shows comprising of harmonium, vocals, ektar and sometimes guitar, playing songs by great songwriters such as woody guthrie and pete seeger, arranging his own versions of traditional folk/gospel songs, and also playing his own original compositions.

Ric Veda's current songs are reflection of all come to pass; from the spiritual indian devotional bhajans and the authenticity of traditional folk songs, to the honest punk attitude and acoustic breakbeats. Ric Veda combines these genres and more to create a new kind of music that could only exist now in this age: with the knowledge of all music (past, present and future) and all spiritual teachings (past, present and future) now available to all of us.
