Mantra Radio showcases the many faces of sacred sound – traditional, contemporary, and futuristic. The show features an eclectic array of electronic and acoustic beats, music, chants, and poetry from the diverse peoples and places of planet earth. We call this complete sound, Nu-Gaia.
The show is broadcast with the intent of transformation and sacred connection – vibrations shared for healing, for growth, for breaking molds, for spiritual activism, for re-union with source.
It is an improvised flow drawing from recordings by other artists, and often incorporating many original sonic layers.
The show airs live every Saturday 5 – 6pm (PST) from the studios of CiTR 101.9fm in Vancouver, Canada and is hosted and produced by Raghunath Khe.
You can listen to episodes anytime via our SoundCloud feed.
