I was a member of Prana, the ground-breaking chanting and drumming group, in the late 80’s. It was my first meeting with Spirit, both through song and the people. My connection to nature began here and an appreciation of native traditions.
In 2000 I joined Seize the Day, the front line political folk band. With them I learned the craft of performance and the power of song, travelling extensively around Britain playing at festivals and political demos.
Mixing all these influences together, I sing songs to empower, connect and bring peace.
Being a Sannyasin of Osho, the Indian Mystic, for 20 years, my music has acquired a devotional element with a great love of silence and space.
Living and working at Osho Leela since 1997, I bring music to the Osho events there, playing with many beautiful musicians over the years. For many years, I was part of the band Presence, playing for Osho meditation weekends and celebrations at Croydon Hall in Somerset. For the last 2 years, I have toured the USA with Milarepa, Osho's minstrel, together with Rishi Vlote and Chandira. It has been a beautiful experience meeting other Sannyasin communities over there and playing for them.
Since going solo I have recorded 4 CD's, all packed with original songs and chants :‘All Your Faces’, 'Carry Me Home', 'Deep into the Earth' and most recently 'Gratitude'. The latest three were produced by Manu Gibbs, my husband, who produced CD’s for Neneh Cherry and Des’ree in his time. He brings richness, warmth and a great groove to the simplicity of my compositions.
My latest CD 'Gratitude' is being launched on 6th Dec 2020.
I have chosen a natural path to heal myself from cancer and support people to make powerful choices about their health.
I am an intuitive healer and use song, a strong heart and compassionate listening to support you on your journey to wellness. I draw inspiration from the sacred elements, earth, air, fire and water and allow their qualities to guide my work.
'I feel safe, held, nurtured and inspired, touched once again by the magic of Tarisha.' (Premal)
