Johanna Beekman is a singer, songwriter, and kirtan artist who grew up in the UU Fellowship of Corvallis; she cur- rently lives in Portland. Johanna is known in the kirtan community for her soulful voice, her creative interpreta- tions of classic chants, and her open-hearted presence. Her songs interweave mantras and chants with English transla- tions.

On March 8 Johanna will be accompanied by members of her band Rhythmantra, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Lyris Cooper and percussionist George Beekman. The band will be joined by popular local guitarist Sidney Rosen, who also plays with the New World Kirtan Band, and Eu- gene flautist Vince McClellan, who has recorded and played with many well-known kirtan artists. Lea Bayles, world-class yoga teacher, inspirational speaker, and catalyst for joyful movement play, will guide gentle movement meditations.
