UPCOMING EVENTS in the Farewell Concert Series…Saying Good Bye to Swaha Productions
I believe most of the Atlanta kirtan tribe remembers HuDost rockin’ it hard and blowing us away with a stellar performance of their unique “sufi-kirtan” set at Chantlanta 2015. So many people afterward simply said “WOW!” or “I’ve never heard anything like it!” Then they swarmed the merchant table to buy up their CDs. We could barely keep up.
David is seen here with Joey Dukes of Blue Spirit Wheel, at a Swaha kirtan concert held at Shambhala Meditation Center, fall of 2014. David is a great friend, teacher, and annual visitor to the Atl kirtan community.
This year’s big double billed event will be held at:
The Healium Arts Sanctuary & Gallery
344 Candler Park Drive, Atlanta.GA. 30307
Center joint visionary venture… this is gonna be so COOL!
Big welcome and shout outs to new sponsors:
White Swan Records, Ember Yoga, Will Pollack (Always tell Stories), Heart Space Atlanta, My Yoga Scene, Sacred Thread Yoga, and EarthShaking Music!
and by the way…
We are thrilled to have ONE as a special guest vendor for the evening, to share information and awareness about their mission.
ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of nearly 7 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease.
ONE is also an organization near & dear to the heart of Neo Folk World Rock Ensemble HuDost, and which was co-founded 12 years ago by rock legend Bono. Swaha Productions is truly honored at their presence for this Farewell Celebration and concert.
From HuDost….“As artists, we are here to share with you our hearts, minds, and souls through music. In this forum, we also choose to share our heart with you for the extreme poor, and we are asking you to join us in this fight by lending your voice to the ONE Campaign.”

Much of the footage thus far comes from right here in Atlanta. The Sound of Devotion is a feature length documentary celebrating devotional music in the world’s religious and cultural traditions. From Kirtan to Carols, we explore the crucial role of music in all faiths to find unity through devotion.
Funding for the completion of this project is desperately needed.
This film is being created by the awesome film artist Jefferson Lovely. You can learn more about Jeff and this film project at theSoundofDevotion.com.
