Lea Longo

(Nam Jiwan Kaur) is her spiritual name...translating to "chanting the names of God is life-giving to those who will hear my voice " and Kaur meaning as a princess of this world...

Lea is a Kirtan chant artist, singer/songwriter and a Kundalini Yoga teacher. Lea travels with her musician Rad, sharing the Bhakti Yoga & devotional song mantras from her CD's, ZEN VOYAGE and new release , PEACE CHANTS.

Lea’s voice has been described as “spiritually rewarding, soothing and mystifying. With a Bachelor of Jazz studies, you can hear some of her jazzy influence in her voice and kirtans. But this singer/songwriter is no stranger to other musical genres, successfully having most of her songs from one of her previous albums, “Miserably Happy” in various popular movies and TV shows as “Cheaper By The Dozen”, “She Drives me Crazy”, “Dawson’s Creek”, “Party Of Five”, “Summerland”, Felicity”, “North Shore, and many more. She was also the Grand Prize Winner in the Canadian National Songwriting Competition, which was picked out of the other 11 finalists and thousands of entries throughout Canada.

It is in 2006 where Lea travels to India and discovers music mantras chanting with true chanting masters. This is where Lea’s transformation happens and it is at that moment when she decides to pursue world-ambient “Yoga Chanting” to a more profound level. Moreover, upon her return, Lea decides to become a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor and teaches mantra meditation to deepen her yoga practice and musical expression.

In 2007, Lea co-produces and releases ZEN VOYAGE -an ambient music CD showcasing her soothing and velvety voice featuring 10 sacred mantras based on Sanskrit texts. Well received in the new age world, Anne Williams from the New Retailer Magazine quotes: “wonderful CD for anyone who enjoys chant but is looking for a new sound. Very nicely arranged and performed”.

Her new CD, "Peace Chants" is a collection of sanskrit, english and gurmuk mantras blended with world beats, melodic guitars,traditional persian and turkish instruments. Lea's voice is captivating and pure, leading the listener to a peaceful and meditative state of bliss.
