Sean Johnson and The Wild Lotus Band are celebrated as one of the leading voices in western kirtan music, known for their dynamic sound that merges mantras, rock, funk, gospel, and world grooves-- merging the spirituality of yoga with the soul of their New Orleans roots. The band is a favorite headliner at festivals nationwide including Yoga Journal and they are the first kirtan band to ever play The New Orleans Jazz Festival. Their music has appeared on Putumayo World Music, Nettwerk/Nutone Records, White Swan Records, and Sounds True.

What others are saying about Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band:
"If you think that a kirtan is a pious sit-still event, you have obviously not heard Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band! A very wise man (George Clinton) once said, “Free your mind and your ass will follow.” Sean, Gwendolyn and Alvin have taken those words to heart and bring a little soul to some amazing bhakti (devotional) music." - Lisa West, Elephant Journal
"Imagine if Krishna Das and The Funky Meters teamed up on some tunes and you might get a sound similar to Sean Johnson And The Wild Lotus Band. But why try to box this talented group in, they are a bold and refreshing face in Kirtan style music." - Namaste Y'all
"Sean Johnson's kirtan will ignite the world! Starting on slow simmer, Calling The Spirits is a jazzy hybrid of East and West that will bring joy to your heart and get your body boogieing!" -Yoga Chicago Magazine
"Perhaps the most powerful version of "I'll Fly Away" at the New Orleans Jazz Festival came from Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band. As he droned it as a private dirge in the Lagniappe Stage, his intensity silenced the talkers and sat those who wanted to dance or rhythmically clap, which would have forced a beat on a version that worked just fine without one." - Alex Rawls, Offbeat Magazine
"The band takes the essence of the bayou and merges it with Indian spiritual music for a sound that bubbles with soul and unbridled passion." - Dan Cowan, Music Design In Review
