Punnu Wasu

SAT SHRI AKAL! NAMASTE!

Punnu Singh Wasu is an Indian vocalist, musician and songwriter. He was born and raised in Hyderabad into a family that has true love for music. Punnu began studying harmonium and singing at the tender age of 5. At age 10, he moved on to studying the Indian (Hindustani) Classical Music while traveling with his father throughout India singing the beautiful verses of Kirtan (devotional music). At the age of 19 he went on tour with Bhai Chatur Singh Ji where his knowledge of mandolin became his focal point. Soon after, Punnu moved to the Philippines where he continued sharing the gift of Kirtan and formed a band called Sing India, which performed world music, Sufi & Bollywood music. Punnu has been invited to sing Kirtan in some of the most sacred places in India including the Golden Temple Amritsar, Vrindavan, Hemkunt Sahib, Rishikesh and Haridwar. He is truly an international performer and travels around the world offering Kirtan, Xtatic Kirtan, Indian Fusion, Sufi and Bollywood Music. He also leads music workshops in combination with yoga & meditation.

Punnu’s musical style is a mix of East meets West – Indian Fusion. The concerts he leads often build from a slow, meditative tempo to a high paced catharsis. He has a remarkably soulful voice that touches the deepest chord in even the most casual listener and it is common for his audiences to clap their hands or stand up and dance during his concerts.

He recorded two cds, his début album called Bhakti Child which was released in 2011 followed by Karuna in 2013. Both are available on his website, iTunes and cdbaby.

Currently, Punnu resides in Bali where he works at the world renowned yoga centre, “The Yoga Barn”, in Ubud. He is on the monthly schedule teaching Hatha Yoga, leading meditation, singing Kirtan and offering Sound Healing melodic journeys. He also leads Kirtan Academy – Bhakti Bliss trainings, meditation workshops and MeditationTeacherTrainings, spiritual courses and Reiki courses regularly. Holistic Healing at The Yoga Barn features him as one of their onsite healers and he offers healing sessions and spiritual counselling daily.
