About Christina Maria (Schmidt)

Christina Maria studied jazz vocals in Germany. After her studies, she lived in South India from 2004 until 2012 in the ashram of Sri Kaleshwar, her teacher, a modern saint and Siddha master. Under his guidance, she studied meditation, the ancient healing and enlightenment knowledge from the palm leaf books, as well as bhajans and kirtans in the style of Shiva Sai Mandir music; a style of bhajans developed by Sri Kaleshwar.

Currently is developing a healing center in South Germany, together with her life partner, Michael Blanka. She is a Sai Shakti healer, teaching bhajans and meditation, and giving bhajan concerts with the aim of creating soul healing through music.

She collaborates with those trained by Sri Kaleshwar in this specific style of bhajans including Sabeenamayi, Veemala and Falk. She also performs and records with Baba's Bhajan Band from the Divine Lineage Healing Center in Laytonville, California and in India, Europe, and the United States.

She is now dedicating herself to her recording projects, together with Michael Blanka, in their studio in south Germany.

A new studio album will be released in the spring of 2018.
