About ONE LOVE

ONE LOVE is based in Ithaca, NY, and travels to cultural centers, yoga studios, retreat centers, churches and other spiritual communities, colleges, and festivals around the U.S.

We feature Kripalu Yoga teacher and interfaith minister Jyoti (Jody Kessler) on guitar and vocals, and multi-instrumental wizard Joe Smellow on percussion and an array of flutes, harmonicas, pan pipes, didgeridoo, and more.

We are joined by an extended family of guest musicians and singers; the number of performers varies depending upon the venue.
