Leave the stresses of daily life behind and open your heart to song. Heal your senses and soothe your soul with the music of local Bahamian musicians Paul and Tanya Hanna. Listen to the inspiring music of the steel pan drum guiding the rhythm of comforting lyrics.
Music is an art form of harmony, peace, and complete tranquility.
Join the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat in welcoming Paul and Tanya in concert Friday August 11, 2018 at 8pm.
