A dedicated practitioner of yoga and overtone singing, Baird Hersey has had a celebrated career in music. He’s received commissions from Harvard University and the New Mexico Council for the Arts, performed at prestigious venues worldwide, and composed extensively for television.
In the ’70s and ’80s, he led the highly acclaimed jazz-rock fusion band The Year of The Ear. In recent years, Hersey has led Prana, a group of singers that applies the overtone techniques of ancient Tibetans without the gravelly, low tones commonly associated with the method. His new book is The Practice of Nada Yoga and he joins us this morning.
He will give a book signing and talk at Mirabai Books in Woodstock, NY on February 8th at 2pm. The CD release party with Prana will take place that night at 7pm at Mountain View Studio also in Woodstock.
