Our Story


Based in Portland, Oregon in the US Pacific NW,

OmTara crafts an invitational, intimate and uplifting live experience.  Soaring three-part harmonies & lively melodies raise the collective vibration inviting audiences to sing along, meditate, dance and bliss out!

OmTara features Erik Blender, Ashley Collins, and Jack Inglis with guest musicians weaving voices and diverse instrumentation.   Enchanting original melodies draw audiences deep into healing & transformation using Buddhist, Sanskrit, & Kundalini Mantras.  Original English lyrics tell heart-opening stories about what these ancient mantras convey.

OmTara members teach Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, DJ Ecstatic Dance, & facilitate Sound Healing + Mantra Meditation in Portland, OR, at Breitenbush Hot Springs in Central Oregon, the Resonance Restival & at retreats + events throughout their home region.  Sat Nam!
