Another topnotch release from America's best Kirtan wallah.

Yoga Chicago

Enticing, captivating, soulful. The beauty which I’ve experienced at Stringer’s concerts is that the music has the capacity to take me outside of myself into a transcendental state. You get a glimpse into this state with Joyride.
