When Wynne is not touring yoga studios offering kirtan, he spends his time in the recording studio working on his unique east/west mix.

Look for him as the lead of the band Groovananda.


Kirtan, a devotional practice from India, is the chanting of the divine name in a participatory fashion. This form of music is popular in ashrams, spiritual centers and yoga studios. Wynne Paris, a touring kirtan musician, will introduce the Mantras, melodies and rhythms of this practice, and share stories from his background, which includes devotion to Kali, Yogananda, and Neem Karoli Baba. Drums and musical instruments welcomed and encouraged.
