Born in 1980, Naamleela Free Jones is the youngest daughter of Bhagavan Adi Da Samraj. Naamleela lived closely with her father and spiritual teacher, witnessing and serving his unique work for nearly three decades.
Since the age of five, she was schooled as a sacred musician, concentrating in depth in both Western and Indian classical traditions. Her training and purpose was always to create music as a sacred art, a means to draw people out of themselves into communion with a greater divine reality.
Showing strong talent at an early age, Naamleela was a precociously gifted pianist and singer, and had already composed her first chants as well as 4-part choral arrangements by the age of 9. By the age of 15, she had mastered and performed many of the great works of classical piano, from Chopin and Rachmaninoff to the entire Goldberg Variations by J.S. Bach. She continued to receive musical training from numerous sources and teachers throughout California, New York, Europe, and Hawaii, most notably Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and his College of Music in San Rafael, California, as well as the Berklee College of Music.
Since 1997 she has been producing original musical CD's expressive of her artistic and devotional relationship with Adi Da Samraj. Her albums to date include meditative classical piano, jazz fusion, traditional mantric chants, and sacred poetic song, all reflective of a profound depth of sacred and artistic sensitivity.
