A kirtan and satsang with sacred chant artist Adam Bauer is a deep immersion in bhakti—the yoga of devotion, a blissful union of hearts and voices carried on a current of music and love. With his warm baritone voice and sonorous harmonium accompaniment, Adam leads his chanting sessions with a gentle, grounded energy, guiding participants to profound levels of conscious awareness.


Adam Bauer travels the globe sharing the heart-expanding beauty of kirtan, healing touch, the I Ching, and transformational conversation. Adam spent years playing bass with kirtan pioneer Krishna Das, and later with Bhakti Yoga legend Shyamdas, both of whom nourished his love of sacred sound and the yoga of devotion. He has released three critically-acclaimed records: Shyam Lila debuted on Mantralogy Records in 2014, Wonderville was released in 2017, and Return to the Sacred in 2020. Adam sings & offers workshops, programs & coaching sessions worldwide, enchanting and inspiring listeners with his deep, soulful voice and presence wherever he goes.

  • “I consider music and singing to be among the most intimate ways we can share and express ourselves and connect with others. For eons, all cultures have recognized the mystical power inherent in shared group musical ritual, or ‘the inspiring effect of the invisible sound that moves all hearts, and draws them together,’ as the I Ching puts it.”


  • “As a singer, it’s my job to nourish and cultivate my essential, loving nature, so that I can be like a hollow bone that allows the presence, joy and ecstasy of the universe to channel through me in a clear and open way.”



Adam spent many years as a bassist for renowned kirtan artists Krishna Das and Shyamdas, and has recorded three albums of his own devotional music


Adam Bauer’s latest album, Return to the Sacred, was recorded early 2020 in India and the USA, and released in October 2020. Produced by Adam Bauer and Ben Leinbach.
