Throughout this life, Sri Mridanga has been my spiritual connection, practice and offering. Taking shelter of the Vedic traditions, I guide students in exploring mridanga as an expression and development of our essential nature. I am here to celebrate, educate and support all levels of interest.
Sri Mridanga’s origins extend more than 5,000 years into Vedic antiquity. Primarily employed as an instrument of kirtan and other sacred ritual, its system is a musical expression of the comprehensive philosophy and yogic mysticism of bhakti – the essential Vedic teaching.
Mridangas are made as a handicraft, which combines pottery, hide tanning, leather work and tuning in very specialized ways to achieve a unique result. Our mridangas are not bought in bulk as “ready-made” lots. Instead, they are ordered individually.
