Jim Gelcer is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer. Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, now based in Toronto, Canada, Jim has recorded and performed around the world with artists as diverse as Lee Aaron, The Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band, Reg Schwager, and Dave Young. His style has been called “welcoming, inviting, and contagious,” and blends together traditional Sanskrit chants with R&B, jazz, and rock. One of the few Canadian artists invited to perform at Bhakti Fest, Jim’s debut recording, “Bhagavan,” was hailed as one of the year’s best by American radio shows In The Spirit and Full Lotus Kirtan. Yoga Chicago magazine called him “the perfect bhakti singer.”
Mantra chanting is filled with positive vibrations, health benefits, and spiritual connection.
