About Michelle ?
I thought I’d share a bit about my musical journey…. how I went from Opera / Musical Theatre to Kirtan and Sound Healing ??
I am a trained Opera Singer and studied at The Blackheath Conservatoire of Music, and performed in many Musicals, Operas, Operettas and Concerts in the UK and abroad. Some of my highlights were playing the title role of ‘Maria’ in West Side Story, and backing singing for Katherine Jenkins at the Millennium Stadium Cardiff.

When I saw Snatam Kaur live I felt inspired and drawn to the Bhakti path (yoga of devotion) and that’s where the seed for singing Mantras was planted. My career as a musician began by playing Piano, Harmonium, Djembe and Frame Drum at events for The Dancing Universe. A few years ago I had the wonderful opportunity to drum and backing sing for Kevin James during his UK tour, which is when my desire to sing Mantras and Chants became stronger. As well as leading my own chanting circles I’m excited to be part of the fantastic Bhakti Band ‘Sivani Mata & The Shakti Soul Family’, and the band ‘STIR’ for Fusion Yoga events.

In addition to being a Kirtan drummer for quite a few singers I have also sang at Christopher Hareesh Wallis’s Satsangs (India), all of which have been incredible experiences for me.

Alongside my drumming career I have led chanting circles in the UK and Holland, and sound healing events – both of which I love to share. My greatest achievement so far is composing and recording my first Mantra album called ‘Journey Of The Heart’. I love sharing my creative passions and taking my audiences on heart opening journeys of deeper connection within themselves.
