Album Notes
Lila is a Kirtan collective made up of sisters Jesse and Deena Robertson and sometimes cellist Rebecca Foon of Silver Mount Zion and Esmerine, and percussionist Kevin McKenzie who plays mostly with Buffy St. Mary. The Robertson sisters have been singing together with their hippie parents since childhood, and their harmonies reflect this comfort. Lila melodies carry Western, Indian and Middle Eastern folk influences.

The sisters are both yoga teachers in the Moksha Yoga tradition, so their music tends to offer that same chill that a yoga class can bring – but with a lot less effort. People have been playing the music for relaxing in the car after work, putting kids to bed, cooking, doing physical yoga, meditation, massage and spa treatments and just to let the shoulders drop. Lila travels offering Kirtan – a call and response chanting – across North America and the Caribbean.

Intimacy and devotion
The experience of Kirtan allows me to contribute my unique voice to a growing and collective voice of devotion. This is an experience of intimacy. I find that too often, studio-recorded Kirtan sounds remote and ethereal, processed as if to sound like it took place in the sky or in some fantasized realm of perfect new-age sanctity. By contrast, the Lila collective invites the listener into a immediate present, where resonance is recorded faithfully: the bow across strings, air against harmonium reeds, breath across vocal chords, hand to drum. I have been wanting to hear music like this forever! Beautiful beautiful beautiful!


This album is beautiful, calming and serene. The sound of these voices in harmony does more than reflect the musical influences that have inspired the melodies. They reflect the beauty of the divine that can be felt when people respect one anothers' differences and help communicate this understanding to others through music. Thank you

All I hoped it would be
I caught two tracks from Myth and Myrrh on PBS radio and ordered it, hoping that the entire CD would be as compelling and comforting as the tracks I had heard. I am very pleased to say that it is.


Absolutely love it!
I love Lila: Myth and Myrrh – it’s beautiful, comforting, energizing, centering. A profound thank you to Jess and Deena for creating and sharing this amazing, intimate music.

The album has become a regular part of my mediation, yoga, and bedtime rituals. (I have even caught myself humming some of it at work).



I love this album, it's easy to listen to and lovely to sing along to! It opens the heart! Thanks Jesse and Deena! : )
