Matthew is a devotee of the One Divine that breathes this universe into being. His life is given in service to Love and Truth, and his music reflects that longing for greater surrender.

Matthew is singer/songwriter teacher who weaves sanskrit mantras with western musical melodies. His songs evoke the essential human longing to join the sacred and the ordinary, and to shine the heart’s radiance through every word, every action. And he teaches yoga philosophy in yoga teacher trainings. Videos of his teachings are at youtube.com/matthewandrews

In 2000 he visited India for the first time and fell in love with the landscape, the people, and the spirit that breathes in the air. At that time he also encountered Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, and the spiritual community called Auroville that has grown out of their vision. In 2002 he met Guruji-Ma, whose path of embodying love and truth has transformed every aspect of his life.

Matthew’s love for India and honoring of the ancient traditions of yoga shine through his music and his life. He is President and CEO of Auroville International, USA, and he organizes and leads devotional yoga and kirtan retreats in North and South India with other mantra musicians, including David Newman, Heather and Benjy Wertheimer, and Brenda McMorrow.
