As a child under the guidance of her parents and grandparents from India, Aditi began offering devotional music from the Sikh and Hindu traditions and Indian folk music to her community in Augusta, Georgia. More recently, she has been studying Indian devotional and classical music with her guru, Krishna Kant Shukla, who lives in Varnasi, India.
She has a deep passion and interest in the power of sacred sound and healing mantras to deepen the experience of life and death. As a Hospice and Palliative Medicine physician and end-of-life doula, she is committed to caring for those aging and dying. She offers these ancient melodies and mantras using voice, harmonium, shruti box, and harp to those experiencing transitions in their lives. She continues to explore ways to enhance and deepen the experiences of those aging and dying and to reconnect with the mystery of this human experience.
Aditi and Jay recently formed a group called "The Appalucians," with Angie Heimann and Cas Sochaki of "The Blushin' Roulettes." www.theappalucians.com. The Appalucians play music from the mountains of Western North Carolina, featuring spirited songwriting, tight harmonies, and a lovely layered interplay between dobro, guitars, harp, bass, and banjo. The Appalucians first CD, "Bright Hills," will be released in Spring 2018.
