Joe Panzetta

Joe Panzetta is a Seattle based musician, yoga & meditation instructor, and graphic designer. He has been practicing Kundalini Yoga since 1996 and was certified to teach in 2001. Joe is also a student and practitioner of Taoism and Buddhism with particular interest in Zen. "Sat Sangeet" is Panzetta's 6th CD, in which he combines for the first time his passions for music and meditation. His professional musical background started in 1989 in Milwaukee where he and Peter Mulvey fronted the band Big Sky. Over the years since then he has grown into a multi-instrumentalist performer, composer and producer. Recorded largely at his home, "Sat Sangeet" features Panzetta on vocals, harmonium, guitar, percussion, bouzouki, tamboura, bass, and banjo (while also featuring many wonderful guest performances including tabla by Ravi Albright and vocals by Sat Purkh Kaur Khalsa). Joe was blessed with the spiritual name "Sat Sangeet Singh" by Yogi Bhajan in 2002, which means "lion of true divine music". He leads kirtan in Seattle with his trio including Ravi Albright on tabla, Vincent Gates on guitar, and Joe on harmonium and vocals. Joe also teaches Kundalini Yoga and meditation weekly and is active in the Seattle Sangat. Joe is also the Creative Director at the software company, Atigeo. The creative process has been an ongoing study of his since his days as a theatre major at Marquette university. For over 20 years he has studied the experience of creation that both artists and scientists share – that spark of inspiration where something comes out of nothing, and then gets coaxed into form. He teaches workshops that investigate the creative process and its' relationship with meditation and yoga, and teaches private sessions on what he calls "stealth meditation" - the practice of being mindful while out in the world and meditating without anyone knowing you're doing it. Joe says this of his journey with Kundalini Yoga: “Kundalini Yoga is a true blessing. It is a practice of affecting the body’s vibration quickly and on a cellular level. This allows the negative vibrations we carry with us from the stresses and demands of life to be replaced with those that are balanced and in harmony with the Whole. The experience is one of grounding, strength and elevation. Sat Nam.”.
