Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band come to Dallas to headline the World Bhakti Festival February 28, 29, and March 1st, 2020.
Sean, Alvin, and Gwendolyn tour extensively as a trio and are a favorite headliner at yoga and music festivals nationwide. In 2010 they were the first kirtan band to ever play The New Orleans Jazz Festival to a large and appreciative crowd. Their debut at Jazz Fest was noted by Offbeat Magazine at the time, and chronicled in the international online magazine Elephant Journal. They were invited back to the Jazz Fest stage in 2014, where GoNOLA.com named them “Top Pick For Day 2 Of Jazz Fest” along with Phish and Robert Plant. In 2015, they made their third trip to the Jazz Fest stage to share the joy and power of their New Orleans-crafted mantra music and their set was featured in the Huffington Post, Bhakti Beat, and My Spilt Milk.
