I've been playing and performing music ever since my early teens. But I only began writing music after I started practicing Yoga and Meditation in 1969 in Orlando, Florida.

Through the fog of the '60s,  I discovered there was a way to live in this world yet still serve my higher self. Since then, I have taught and practiced Kundalini Yoga and meditation.

My meditative experiences opened a channel in me that I had never been able to touch. Energized and experiencing astonishing new things, music became my way of explaining. My way of transmitting the experiences I was given.

I have played the Troubadour in L.A. I sang before 120,000 screaming fans at Baton Rouge Pop in 1971. I toured the US with the Khalsa String Band. Seal once backed me on stage. I was a founding member of Peace Family with Snatam Kaur and Guru Ganesha.  But my greatest honor was to write "Song of the Khalsa", a song that is sung by Sikhs and seekers all over the world. - Livtar
