Duo’s ‘positive vibes’ music featured at Sunday service

By From page A4 | March 05, 2014

The musical talents of Narayan and Janet will be featured at Sunday’s noon service at the Center for Spiritual Living, 1715 Anderson Road in Davis.

“Music for peace, goodwill and the celebration of life” is how the couple describe their sound. Their “positive vibes” music lifts and transforms energy in concert venues and private gatherings throughout the region.

Combining universal spiritual truths with a passion for music, Narayan and Janet’s songs are designed to open hearts and encourage joyful community. Lifelong professional performers, studio musicians and songwriters, they bring a wide range of musical genres and diverse experiences to their music — a blend of jazz, Motown, the Beatles and world music grooves that feature vocals, keyboards, trumpet and flugelhorn.

Narayan and Janet’s modern musical sensibilities are gained from a lifetime of diverse musical experiences.

Janet Baltzos’ career began when she played in the bands of Albert Collins, James Cotton and Merrilee Rush. She has hosted two television series and spent a period touring and recording with New Age artists Dave Lanz and Paul Speer.

Narayan’s background includes years of international touring as a featured trumpet soloist. He has been showcased in big bands, musical revues, R&B and world-music acts. He also took time to study music and yoga in India.


Together, they have backed up the Spencer Davis All-Star Band, with Alan White of Yes and Roger Fischer of Heart, and host their own radio show, “Living Music Radio,” on KKNW, 1150 AM.
