Mother's Calling

by Ambika

Mother’s Calling is the debut album from longtime kirtan wallah, Ambika, blending the sacred mantras of India with her western musical roots growing up in NYC. The result is a rich landscape of devotional call and response chanting, featuring exclusively female vocalists as an homage to the community of female devotees who have supported her practice for the past twenty years.

This work is dedicated to her Spiritual Mother and Teacher, Sri Siddhi Ma.

Available here.


News & Updates





Ambika has been a singer and musician for most of her life, playing in various bands in NYC until she discovered chanting with Krishna Das in 1995. Kirtan had a profound effect on her, and lead her to India where she met her teacher and Spiritual Mother, Shri Siddhi Ma. As Ambika  deepened her connection to the practice of chanting, it became her home and refuge. Recently she has been exploring chants from other faith traditions, working with a program at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine.

In February 2015, Ambika released a digital single "Metta Chant", produced and recorded by Devadas Labrecque. Her first full-length album, "Mother's Calling", produced by Lily Cushman, is available now on Mantralogy.
