Jai-Jagdeesh – BIO
Jai-Jagdeesh’s journey as a singer began over 20 years ago, in a temple in India, and the soundcurrent continued all through her childhood. While at school in Amritsar, she traveled around Northern India as one of the musical representatives of Yogi Bhajan’s foreign education program (now Miri Piri Academy), playing kirtan everywhere the students were invited. Between then and now, her creative spirit has walked many artistic paths – actress, classical Indian dancer, photographer and writer – and she says “I find myself truly fulfilled now that music has returned to the forefront.”
In 2010, Jai-Jagdeesh joined the Spirit Voyage family of recording artists. Her debut album, ‘I Am Thine’, a combination of sacred mantras and powerful English lyrics, was released in the summer of 2011 to record sales and acclaim. She began touring across the globe and performing at Sat Nam Fests, delighting crowds with her soulful voice and deeply authentic style. She released her first meditation CD of Kundalini mantra, ‘The Expansive Spirit’, as a part of Spirit Voyage’s Meditations for Transformation series in early 2012. Her second full-length studio album, ‘Of Heaven & Earth’, climbed up to #6 on Billboard’s New Age Music chart within the first few weeks of its release in the fall of 2013, and has been making waves on the airwaves around the world.
Jai-Jagdeesh continues to record (a new meditation CD, ‘Miracles Abound’ was released in February of 2015), perform, and express her heart’s deepest creativity. She is completely devoted to sharing these sacred sounds, and sings them from the center of her heart. With humility, grace and kindness, she brings a bit of dance and lot of love to the world of kirtan.
