Sakshi Zion means “Witness of Heaven on Earth”. Hailing from Bloomington, Indiana and Hawaii, Sakshi is a Sanskrit word meaning “Witness” and Zion means “Heaven on Earth”. Together Sakshi Zion represents a consciousness and mindset of divinity, love and abundance. With a musical range drawing from Reggae, R&B, Hiphop, Ragga, Kirtan and World-Fusion, his music is an ever evolving voyage of self-discovery and transformation.
One of Sakshi’s projects is known as “Baraka”.
Baraka is a Musical Healing Kirtan group. Kirtans are ancient and mystical chants which purify the consciousness and connect one to the Divine through specific mantras, tones, and musical vibrations. Our message speaks of Unity, Compassion, and Peace. Baraka, is an Ancient word meaning Blessing, Essence of Life, & Soul Power. The band has a brand new Kirtan CD available called “Kirtan of the Sacred Fire”, which combines Agnihotra Fire Healing with Kirtan & Mantra Sound Healing.
“Kirtan is a healing power, it is actually medicine to the wounded souls of humanity and people actually long for this experience. I am simply a vessel of the healing vibrations that come through in the kirtan experience. The Divine in all its Amazing and Powerful Energies and Aspects infuse the mantras and kirtans with tremendous healing power and inspiration. I also interweave my kirtans with stories in my workshops which help relate the mantras and divine names to the participants of the kirtan.” ~Sakshi Zion
