The Band of Now
Blessed to be raised by musical parents, growing up on the sweet sounds of barbershop and dominant 7 chords, Prem Vidu was always interested in the intention behind the music. After gaining his BFA in Percussion Performance & Jazz Studies, life eventually led him to share his devotion through song and prayer. Guided to facilitate spirit-medicine journeys, he combines 10-years of leading ceremony with an 8-year practice of chanting. With a lifetime of musical experience, he now offers Kirtan, inviting all to share their voices together in devotion. He currently composes for, directs and leads The Band of Now, blending Sanskrit mantra and English lyrics, creating a sacred space for healing, peace and joy to cultivate.
