Featured Guest: Lea Longo
Few artists can boast a rich and varied musical path that Lea Longo has. From pop to world music through jazz, this award winning Canadian singer/songwriter has explored several genres with equal success, garnering praise and prizes along the way. From winning a National Songwriting Contest to chanting mantras, and recording 4 CD’s including ZEN VOYAGE & PEACE CHANTS, her 2 mantra CD’s were well received in the Sacred Chant community.
Lea’s voice has been described as “Spiritually Rewarding”, and her previous songs has been featured in popular Film & TV shows as: Cheaper by the Dozen, She Drives me Crazy, Dawson’s Creek, Party of Five, Felicity, and many more. After discovering Indian mantras from her India trip in 2006, Lea transformed herself totally by adopting the practice in her life and presently, Lea leads yoga of sound classes (kirtans) and concerts in notable Festivals like Wanderlust, Fest yoga, Yocomo, Open Mind Festival, The Toronto Yoga Conference and more. She is the also the founder and co-producer of the Montreal Chant Fest and Om Montreal.
Her new self-produced CD called ‘SONGS OF A SIREN’ returns to her past musical education (she holds a BA in JAZZ Music) ,the album is a collection of original love songs, mantras, and known jazz standards like “FEVER” “Here’s To Life” & “The Very Thought of You” hypnotizing the listener with Lea’s sensual, seducing vocals, and musical arrangements morphing the verses & choruses with Indian mantras with the twist of Jazz, making the “East meets West” a true successful listening discovery.
