The daffodils are out - spring is coming! After hibernating a fair bit musically over the last year, spring is setting change in motion.
Change #1 I am embracing my birth name of Sarah. Since many know me as Premratna, this will continue to be used for context.
Change #2 I have moved away from the big smoke Auckland and to the stunning Bay of Plenty. It's amazing. I intend to continue trips to my home town and stay connected to the communities there, especially where I've shared music in the last year: Wise Cicada, Golden Yogi, Om Yoga Studio, Yoga Ground and Kawai Purapura. So far in the Tauranga area I've been leading kirtan in conjunction with Wild and Grace and aim to diversify now that I'm finding my feet.
Change #3 An additional tier to my bow: I'm helping out coordinating music for the Little Yoga Festival in Mount Maunganui September 15-17. It's a wellness festival with fabulous music, yoga, plenty of other workshops and talks. Kids under 14 are free. The tickets are so reasonably priced that you can travel here and get accommodation (with discounts) all for less than a bigger festival in the big smoke. I'll be playing there too. Come say hi!
