Sunshine Deva is a new band featuring Washington DC based Kirtan artist Wynne Paris and Bay Area guitarist Mark Karan, best known for his long term work playing guitar with Bob Weir and Ratdog. Wynne started playing kirtan with Krishna Das in 1997 and helped KD record the epic ‘Pilgrim Heart’. While playing at Harbin Hotsprings back in 98, Wynne met Mark Karan, who had just been chosen to play lead guitar with ‘ The Other Ones, when the Dead were reuniting post Jerry Garcia’s passing. In 2017, almost twenty years after they met, Wynne and Mark formed Sunshine Deva and mixed their musical influences together to create a jammy new spiritual offering: Grateful Kirtan. Last year, they played their first shows at East Coast transformational festivals and yoga studios. Lucidity will be their west coast debut. Hang on to your malas and grab your guitars, 2019 is going to be a wild ride!
