What they are Saying …
“Songs Of A Siren” is an ambitious undertaking that could have easily missed the mark if done by a less accomplished and innovative artist than Lea Longo and her talented team of accompanists. Over the course of ten tracks, Lea has managed to create a musical mélange that appeals to both the inner and outer dimensions of the listener. Songs Of A Siren will have your toe tapping and your spirit rising”.
Music and Media Focus – Music Review by Michael Diamond
Canadian singer and songwriter Lea Longo is a talented artist with roots in television and major film. Her work can be found on Dawson’s Creek, Party of Five and Cheaper by the Dozen among others. She has been performing for most of her life. An international traveler, Longo is fluent in many languages and has embraced world music in her work. “Songs of a Siren” is her most recent release. There are cover songs and original works with a combined flair of world music, yoga chants, jazz and pop.
“Om Radha Krishnaya Namaha” is one of Longo’s original works. A steady percussive beat, the song is a svelte vocal experience with pop elements incorporating a seamless encapsulation of yoga chanting turned popular music. Like a hazelnut mousse spread over a chocolate cookie, this song is smooth and delicious and I couldn’t stop playing it. The primary focus is on the vocals with light percussion. You almost don’t notice what is going on in the background-some ambient sounds and the tinkling of chimes. Beautiful.
“Love Is All You Need” has two versions on this album—the standard version and the Ben Leinbach Mix. Both are heavily infused with mantra jazz and a heavy Indian influence. Poetic and rich with textured music and pop infusions, the song is a blend of Eastern and Western cultures at their best. Catchy and full of light, these two pieces resonate joy.
“Om Parama Prema” is a breathy piece that brings to mind coffeehouse tunes and caramel macchiatos. An infusion of yoga chants with a resounding jazz and pop essence, this track is one you could imagine hearing on the soundtrack of your favorite current Hollywood blockbuster. A steady percussive beat, this song is much like “Om Radha Krishnaya Namaha” in the vocal focus.
Lea Longo has performed all over the world. Bringing mantra style world music together with jazz and pop elements she creates a seamless musical experience with her silky voice and songwriting talents. This album contains three well known jazz standards—“The Very Thought of You,” “Fever” and “Here’s to Life” but it was the original works that caught my attention. Those are the pieces that make this album lean closer to the 5 star range in the ratings. The original works let the listener hear the artist in her natural environment, and what a lovely sound it is. Don’t miss this album.

Lea’s voice & presence are invaluable in creating and holding a loving space. I feel comfortable and invited to project my own vocalizations with compassion, and total absense of judgement.

The more I participate in meditation & yoga chanting, the more I feel the benefits.
This was an amazing experience that everyone should try and pursue. Once again a big thanks to Lea and Rad for guiding the session, and thank you to all who came to set a record high attendance at the studio!
Elle vous envoûte encore avec son nouvel album Songs of a Siren. Je pense que c’est à voir et pas seulement à entendre!

What is Yoga of Sound ? (Bhakti Yoga, Naada Yoga)
Mantra or Yoga of Sound (Naada Yoga ) is a “musical meditative ” yoga, a musical expression of the soul. We chant “mantras” in a kirtan. It is a “yoga” of sound, where we use a call and response experience. It is not about the musical aspect but the heart aspect that leads us to a peaceful, meditative state.
Chanting ancient mantras and prayers allows us to tune our whole being, mind, body, and Spirit to the One Source, to the One God.
“Kirtan” is a Sanskrit word for group musical expression of the Divine Spirit within. Chanting together as one, we raise the level of our own vibration to a high spiritual state where we can actually feel and experience our Divine nature. Chanting is possibly the most effective means of directly experiencing our spiritual nature. It is a meditation practice…

What is Naad Yoga?
Naad Yoga is a “Sound” Yoga where we use our unique voice to connect within ourselves.The power of chant /using our voice involves bridging the two worlds of humanity and eternity. It allows a person to touch a deeper world that is organic and flowing. Chant has no set rhythm, and is based on the breath in combination with tonal patterns of sustained vowels. To create vibrations that elevate is the goal of Naad Yoga.Using mantra to create these vibrations is the highest form of self-communication.
Is Chanting easy and why do we Chant?
Chanting is an easy tool because you can chant anywhere—out loud or silently—and change your state of being. When we chant ancient, sacred and uplifting mantras that inherently have a high frequency, our tongue touches the roof of the mouth in a very specific manner.
This creates a chain reaction resulting in a change in the chemical composition of the brain. When the chemistry of the brain is balanced, our state of mind and outlook on life improves dramatically. We simply feel better.In Kundalini Yoga, we use a technology that is called Shabd Guru.
What is Shabd Guru ?
Shabd Guru is a very special sound current that uses the technology of the Naad Yoga. Therefore it is not just any sound, but a primal sound. Each primal sound is a unit that is pronounced by a particular part of the mouth. When we form a word and we speak it, we utilize the 84 meridian points on the roof of the mouth to stimulate the hypothalamus to change the chemistry of the brain. Not every combination of sounds or words will create patterns of healing or wholeness – therefore the Shabd Guru is unique.In the science of Naad, there are three key elements that enhance the experience. Rhythm, projection and pronunciation. Maintaining a precise rhythm of the mantra as well as maintaining the correct number of beats with the mantra is crucial to its effectiveness. For example, many Kundalini mantras are chanted in eight beats. Any mantra chanted with eight beats is an Ashtang Mantra. Example: RA MA DA SA- SA SAY SO HUNG – ( Siri Gaitri Mantra)

The use of Mantras for Chanting
We use mantras which are sacred texts when we chant. Mantras can excite the emotions and give suggestions to the mind and therefore bringing calm to the mind and spirit. Mantras affect both the one who sings them and the one who hears them.
The word “ mantra” comes from Sanskrit word “mantrana” which means advice or suggestion. When we chant in a private session, we work with both the body and the voice with a focus on deep breathing and relaxation exercises aimed at releasing vocal and physical tensions and explore chanting with traditional and effective techniques for improved health, vitality and projection…

More on Nada Yoga
While the modern world may be just waking up to the music healing therapy, ancient Indian scriptures have a well-documented technique called ‘nada yoga’ — or the science of utilising sound vibrations and yogic asanas (postures) to achieve ‘salvation’.According to research, nada yoga has enormous power to heal. It is believed that Indian classical music has very positive effects on human health and behaviour.“Recent studies on the subject showed that music along with yoga can heal disorders like hypertension, arthritis, problems related to upper or lower parts of the body, mental stress and tension,”
