Aks is a composer, producer and vocalist who composes music for albums, film & TV, and video games. Trained by Oscar winner AR Rahman, Aks has a forte for combining multi-layered electronic orchestrations with classical Indian melodies. Lakshmi is a vocalist-scholar who brings singing, scholarship, and storytelling onto one platform. With an M.A. in Religious Studies from Stanford University, she performs and writes on the great bhakti poet-saints for international publications such as Hinduism Today. The duo’s love for Sanskrit, Hinduism, technology and Indian cultural values inspires them every day to create this innovative path of electronic bhakti music. As guest artists at Princeton, Stanford, and the Parliament of World Religions, the content of their sacred music holds strong educational value. In 2013, their music and media company Eclipse Nirvana released “The Bhakti Movement” album, distributed worldwide by Sony Music. Aks & Lakshmi are a composer-vocalist duo who specialize in Electronic Bhakti Music. They are pioneers in blending Hindu devotional bhajans and stotras with electronic and pop genres to create powerful spiritual experiences. The husband-wife team left their corporate careers in software engineering and finance, and have been full-time devotional musicians for over 8 years. They are based in Los Angeles, CA and tour in North America and beyond. Audiences describe their music as “healing,” “meditative” and “transforming.”
