Johanna’s presence on the mic, as a teacher, yogini, devotional human being, musician and all around bad ass, helps me melt into a more receptive, humble and serene state... I love that Johanna exists - she is such a bright light and it's certainly worth spending some time learning from her and enjoying her lovely smiles and warm vibes!

A transcendent experience. The unique arrangement combined with ethereal harmonies and an ancient mantra blend to create a perfect opportunity to ground yourself at the beginning of your meditation or to seal the meditation when you finish. I listen to this every day, Om Shanti - Peace/ Rob

Johanna: I attended…. more accurately fully experienced last night's Mantra Sangha and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it and how incredibly nurturing for me it was. As with most of us, I've been struggling with the realities of COVID isolation and felt so much better being a part of last night and carrying that warmth into today. Thank you for all you bring to the world. Namaste.

Hanging out and working on music with Johanna is always a kick. She's a fired up individual who brings great passion to her music. Mantra Soul is a sweet collection of jams - soulful, grooving, and at times rocking out. I recorded the majority of these tracks, and produced, mixed, and mastered the project. We also did some co-writing together on a few of the songs.

Johanna Beekman’s brand new album, Mantra Soul, is soulful and deep. Johanna's voice soars through the 7 selections. She sings mantra and English words that take us on a journey through the heart. I felt deeply when I heard "Heart Beats One" and again with "Beyond Love." Feeling the same with "Mantra Soul." She is also aided by Ben Leinbach and Hans Christian. Hear it for yourself from beginning to end and let the sound waves wash through and sooth your soul.
Johanna has delivered a stellar, timeless, amazing new album expanding the genre of kirtan music with hypnotic rhythms, gorgeous vocal melodies, dreamy soundscapes, and an all-star cast of guest performers.
