WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT TEJASE
"Tejase is beautiful beyond words!"
-Sandi Binns Koch, Owner of Santosha Yoga and Movement, Puyallup, WA
"Love and devotion materialized..."
-Andre Cavanha, Yoga Teacher, Los Angeles, CA
"Rob and Melissa have delivered us a true jewel in the Yoga Mantra Music world. Their new album Tejase is sweet, soothing, healing and spiritually uplifting. A true classic!"
-Govind Das, Director of Bhakti Yoga Shala, Santa Monica, CA
Rob and Melissa's first full-length kirtan album, Tejase, is inspiring and devotional music for the heart. The Sanskrit word "tejase" comes from the root "tejas," which can be translated as "the vital essence of illumination." Tejase is the follow-up to their 5-song acoustic EP, Bolo (2013), and features a full production sound, produced, mixed and mastered by Ben Leinbach.
From the get-up-and-move-your-body inspiration found in “Blue Shiva” to the lush “Lakshmi” to the meditative sound bath of the title track, “Tejase,” Rob and Melissa’s new CD is filled with music to satisfy any vibe. Whether a life-long devotee, or new to kirtan, you will love this celebration of the divine light that shines in us all!
