Gina Salá, a vocalist, composer, teacher and (kirtan) chant leader has a repertoire spanning 23 languages, and a reputation as a musical healer among her devoted fans in the Pacific northwest. Born into an Acadian family of singers she began chanting at the age of 3 in a remote Canadian ashram and continued much later under her spiritual teacher Papa-ji in Lucknow, India. She has since gone from wandering with sadhus in the Himalaya's to programs in Japan, Asia, the United Nations and on stage as lead singer for Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas. To this day she continues to teach and tour internationally while expanding her own expertise and knowledge of the ancient classical arts of India.
Similarly, Maui resident and tabla drum virtuoso Daniel Paul has been a fixture on the international kirtan chanting circuit for decades. He has primarily accompanied grammy nominee Jai Uttal along with many of the top artists of the genre. As a young man Daniel's nine years of musical study gave him the opportunity to assist several of India's greatest classical maestros.(Ali Akbar Khan, Zakir Hussain & Swapan Chaudhuri), and he was later awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to further his studies throughout India. Returning to Maui he has since played in countless programs including accompanying Hawaii's legendary Henry Kapono opening for Bob Dylan and also for the Dalai Lama at the Waikiki Bandshell's "Hawaiian Kingdom 100 Year Overthrow Commemoration".
Gina and Daniel have been touring extensively this past year together appearing at festivals and venues across the western states.On Maui in addition to the Jan 18th program at the Temple of Peace in Haiku they are also hosting a 7 Day Kirtan & Drum Workshop this Jan 21st to 28. on the north shore.
