One of the most dynamic kirtan singers around, Suzin Green was an early comer to the American kirtan scene. In the summer of 1999, she teamed up with the world fusion band Sura and “Hearts on Fire” is the result of that collaboration. Eight years later, the music they captured on this album still sparkles with a freshness and depth that make it a classic in the genre. Great for listening at home or in the car. Fabulous if you like to sing along. And of course, perfect background music for yoga.
"When I got here I gave Ma a copy of your CD. She played it over the loudspeaker here repeatedly. Many people came up to me and told me they loved the music. And one night in darshan, Ma asked me publicly who you were. She said she didn't like most American kirtan, but thought the album was brilliant and wondered if you would come visit or perform when she comes up north? [Sri Derek at Ma Jaya's Kashi Ashram]
"Suzin Green & Sura's album, Hearts on Fire, has the power to dissolve any illusion we hold of our own separateness into a vibrant, tantalizing whole - which is love itself." [Emily Sell, Shambhala Publications]
Suzin Green is best known for leading ecstatic, soulful, chanting that opens the heart and prepares the mind for deep meditation. She loves to sing mantra, the music of Yoga and delights in watching a roomful of people melt into an ocean of bliss. Suzin also teaches Devi Yoga, a system of practice built from the Hindu Goddess tradition, Tantra, Bhakti Yoga, Archetypal Psychology, and the Way of Art. She has recorded two kirtan albums, "Hearts on Fire" and "Devi Demo" and is a featured artist on the Relaxation Company releases, "Women’s Yoga Chants" and "Meditations for Music and Sound Healing." She's also written on spirituality and the goddess for Ascent, Meditation Pathways, Yoga Chicago, and Sagewoman magazines. Suzin’s knowledge of Yoga is rooted in the nearly two decades she spent living in ashrams and centers established by the late Baba Muktananda. And it was the chanting she learned from Muktananda that revolutionized her own approach to music. She holds an MA in Art & Consciousness Studies and is a registered expressive arts therapist. [REAT] Suzin has led workshops and performed throughout the USA, Canada, and Mexico. She also maintains a private practice in NYC, offering high-performance coaching and transformational inner work.
