Mirabai Ceiba

Open in App

A gentle yet expansive spirit pervades all the music of Mirabai Ceiba.
The delicate sounds of harp, piano, and guitar blend with
lovingly intertwined voices amid lush celestial soundscapes.
Their concerts are group celebrations for peace-joyous and
loving occasions that embody the duo's profound belief in music as a
universal language uniting all the world's peoples, cultures
and traditions.

Mirabai Ceiba is a duo consisting of guitarist/singer
Markus Sieber and singer/harpist/pianist Angelika Baumbach.
They come from different parts of the world. Markus is East German.
Angelika was born in Tucson, Arizona, and grew up in a small
village near Mexico City, the daughter of a Mexican mother
and German father.

Together, Angelika and Markus have forged
engaging new style of world devotional music blending
Gurmukhi mantras from the Kundalini Yoga tradition with original
songs in English and Spanish that reflect a Native American
influence and also draw words of wisdom from Rumi, Thich Nhat
Hanh, Guru Nanak and Yogi Bhajan. Through exquisitely
crafted recordings like their CD A Hundred Blessings, Mirabai Ceiba
weave a beguiling tapestry from these diverse influence and
sources. And that's what the music feels like: a beneficent
and abundant gift from the universe. In concert, they inspire
all present to chant together in a spirit of compassionate
love and Oneness.

Even the name Mirabai Ceiba embodies the
influences of both India and Native Latin America. Mirabai
(1498-1547) was a Hindu mystical singer. Her songs express the
longing of the individual self to be one with the universal self,
represented by Krishna. For Angelika and Markus, the name
Mirabai "is the exploration, the devotion, the inspiration in
all the different aspects of divinity."

And the Ceiba is a sacred tree of Latin
America which is never cut and grows very tall. "We wish our
music could be like the Ceiba tree," say Markus and Angelica,
"with roots deep in Mother Earth and branches extending far and wide
into Father Sky."
