Aykanna is a husband and wife musical duo known for their soulful, percussion‐driven music and wisdom teachings. Stronger together, Sukhdev, billboard acclaimed musician and Grammy nominated percussionist Akah Jackson share their passions for healing through sound and soul.
The name Aykanna can be translated as a link between heavenly and earthly natures, and their mission is just that – to guide their listeners to remember and embody their own Truth.
Decades of devotion sculpted the sound of Aykanna, blending masculine and feminine: the deep roots of sacred chant traditions with the spirit of shamanic healing practices. Their inspirational, positive messages are reinforced with playful beats and enchanting vocals and reach far beyond the boundaries of Kirtan and new age music genres and into the hearts of the mainstream.
Aykanna performs and teaches internationally in Central America, Europe, and throughout the US.
Their critically-acclaimed albums include “Livelight”, “Mother”, “Mantra Mala” and “Seeds of Love”. Their new album “Walking Sky, Dreaming Earth” will be out in April 2019
Akah and Sukhdev live with their 6 year old daughter, Sahej, in Ojai California.
