She has classical training in Indian and South Asian Music. In addition, she teaches and plays Hawaiian slack key, folk music, and piano. Contact Laurie at SunGodTemple@hotmail.com.

We would love to play at your event…
art openings, weddings, parties, kirtans–use your imagination. The audio example here is a shortened version of Raga Durga, a long piece celebrating the “Wonder Woman” myth of India. The veena starts slowly and quietly and gradually speeds up, adding percussion. We can also enlist story-tellers and/or dancers.
