The Householders weave hip-hop, electronica, and traditional chanting into a unique synthesis of dance and devotion.
After meeting at a yoga ashram in northeast PA, the Householders’ members felt inspired to combine their diverse musical backgrounds and offer a contemporary portrait of what devotional music means to them in the 21st century.
Steeped in an ancient yoga lineage, The Householders create a sonic tapestry that is both relevant in our times yet rooted in the wisdom of a timeless tradition; a ruthlessly honest and disarming real expression of what it means to be a spiritual seeker in the twenty-first century.
With backgrounds in jazz, house, hip-hop, electronica and devotional Indian music, the Householders have one foot firmly planted in the East while the other is most definitely kicking up a storm in the West, bringing the Deities to the Dance floor.
