On Deck: Blue Soul Caravan
Alex Goldfarb and Leela Bergerud are Blue Soul Caravan, an Americana bluegrass outfit from Minneapolis. Their music is unique in that it uses mantras "to elevate one's heart and spirit."
Goldfarb’s musical interests developed early on, beginning with the violin. Goldfarb has since added guitar, banjo, sitar, flutes, harmonica, percussion, and imbira/kalimba to his instrumental arsenal. Goldfarb’s solo career resulted in two albums: Magnifying Glass and Keys for Locks.
Bergerud began her singing career as a pre-teen and went on to perform throughout North, South and Central America.
Together, Goldfarb and Bergeud create soothing tunes that calm the mind, body, and spirit. They have shared their creative gifts with spiritual communities, yogis, and other alternative groups and gatherings throughout the Twin Cities.
Blue Soul Caravan's latest release is Pioneer The Light, from which we will hear material tonight!
Tune into "Live From Studio 5!" every Wednesday from 10 PM to Midnight on KFAI radio. Listen in on 90.3 FM in Minneapolis, 106.7 in St. Paul, or stream online at kfai.org.
