Jesse Stern bio:
Jesse is a multi-instrumentalist who mainly plays tabla, guitar, and Bansuri flute. Born in Corvallis, Oregon, he grew up learning the love of music by listening to his Dad play guitar and his Mom sing. He began his musical education during elementary school, studying classical piano, and then moved onto jazz and classical guitar studies through middle school and high school, further going on to receive a degree in Jazz Guitar Performance from Portland State University.
After graduating Jesse began to practice different types of yoga and found an especially deep connection with the practices of Ashtanga, Bhakti, and Nada Yoga, the yoga of sound. To further explore Nada Yoga, Jesse relocated to Marin County, California in the spring of 2014 to study classical Indian music at the Ali Akbar College of Music in San Rafael, learning tabla from Pt. Swapan Chaudhuri, and vocal study independent from the college with Smt. Kankana Banerjee. He currently resides in the Bay Area, where he continues to study and play music.
