The first person I think of when I think of Buddhist musicians is Leonard Cohen. This is a great song!
Please the jazz lovers on your guest list with some Herbie Hancock. Sam writes for Tricycle that Hancock said Buddhism’s “lessons were made manifest ‘through the music.'”
Tina Turner would be a fun sing along for later in the party.
Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys sometimes identified as Buddhist. In this interview with Tricycle, he said, “I study life and people and I think the Buddhist path is a really strong one, really intelligent.”
Other musicians rumored to be interested in Buddhism include Alanis Morissette, Jennifer Lopez, and Courtney Love.
