In 2005, Kalika Fortin moved from the conservative Midwest into an ashram in Colorado. She was immersed in a new and beautiful world of meditation, service and devotional chanting. Captivated by the sweet, calming energy of the morning chants, as well as the lively evening kirtans, it became clear that bhakti yoga was her path. She enjoyed several years in Shoshoni Yoga Retreat’s resident band, Shiva’s Garden, before forming The Pushpams with Mira Gale and Kumara Etzel.
Her debut album, Flowers for Kali, honors traditions lost and found in a gentle offering of uplifting chants and intimate songs.
