The Band


Sean Johnson

Vocals and Harmonium

New Orleans native Sean is the founder of the band and loves to inspire people through a creative integration of imaginative music, yoga, storytelling, and poetry. His passion for music ranges from a deep appreciation for the transcendental power of rock, Irish folk music, Indian and Sufi devotional music.


Alvin Young

Fretless Bass and Guitar

New Orleans native Alvin infuses the band with rich musicality and depth weaving the rock, jazz, classical, and folk styles he's been immersed in for the last 40 years. He spent years on the Crescent City music scene playing with Wynton and Branford Marsalis, local legends James Booker, James Black and many more.


Gwendolyn Colman

Percussion and Vocals

Gwendolyn brings to the band boisterous rhythm, vocals, and personality honed from years of playing with middle eastern, flamenco, and avant garde bands. Her percussion dashboard includes frame drums, cajon, high hat, kick drum, doumbek, and karbobs- playing with merging ancient rhythms with a modern, urban flare.

"Their music will ignite the world...a hybrid of East and West that will bring joy to your heart and get your body boogieing."
