“for the LOVE of Music” with Sara Troy and her guest KALIYANI, on air from February 20th
Tears for Inanna is Brazilian-born Kaliyani’s powerful second release. Her debut video, “Nammu’s Invocation,” garnered more than two million views on YouTube and is a collaboration with Hollywood composer/filmmaker Riz Story (writer, director and producer of A Winter Rose which features Kaliyani’s first single).Seamlessly weaving visions of sensuality into a primordial context, Tears for Inanna is a beautiful manifestation of a generally misunderstood archetypal myth. Inanna challenges us to review our belief systems, particularly with respect to our culture’s view on sexuality and the role of the sacred feminine throughout history. Kaliyani radiates this sacred Inanna energy in the video, the enchantment of her powerful yet graceful vocalizations leading the way.
Kaliyani’s musical style elegantly blends exotic world music with complex transcendent qualities. Emotive and alluring, her vocals summon Operatic and Gregorian styles, while her music uniquely delves into dramatic, contemporary orchestration profoundly rich in structure.
A spiritual and creative visionary, Kaliyani only recently discovered her singing voice. A remarkable distinction of Kaliyani’s music career is that she is more connected to the content and soul of what is being expressed, rather than taking pleasure from the act of singing alone.
“I believe in quality far more than in quantity and so I feel very comfortable in this unique space I allow myself to express from, without pressure and fully rooted in the authentic expression of my soul, untainted by outside models or expectations,” says the artist.
“I am a singles artist, who is most connected to the purpose in singing rather than the pleasure of it. One could say I’m a bit stage shy. I much prefer to create, release and let it go into the world by itself, and spread its magic on its own.”

Through Tears for Inanna listeners are transported to an ancient, mystical world where the Sacred Feminine is fully realized. “Inanna, who was said to have taught much of what we know about civilization,” as Kaliyani illuminates, “also taught us that the sexual union is, in fact, a sacred and spiritual act; as opposed to a sinful one. Rather, a holy and powerful energetic offering that can, when done with reverent intention, release harmonic frequencies for the manifestation of balance in every dimension of being.”
Kaliyani (also known as Jane Villar-Gehr) is a spiritually inspired visionary, producer, artist and founder of Stargate Alliance Films & Media whose mission is to inspire humanity though offering alternative visions, and empowering tools for global soul transformation. It is Kaliyani’s dream to offer herself as an instrument for the betterment of humanity and uplifting of consciousness on the planet. She says her deep heartfelt connection with Source is the driving force and fuel in everything she co-creates and assists in bringing forth.
