Nicole “Coli” Miele and Mayleen Medina

Unbounded

Nicole Miele and Mayleen Medina of Rock & Soul Wellness have been sharing their love of music through modern Kirtan since 2018. Unbounded incorporates original uplifting songs with traditional call and response chants to create an uplifting community experience.

Nicole “Coli” Miele has been playing the guitar since she was 8 years old, and writing and performing her own music since she was in her teens. After several years in a stressful career, she was introduced to Reiki and discovered the benefits of art and meditation. Through this, Nicole was also able to find her joy in music again. In 2018, Nicole was introduced to Kirtan and she has been writing and performing with Mayleen ever since.
Mayleen Medina has always loved to sing and has been writing uplifting lyrics for over 20 years but was never brave enough to share them with the world. In 2015, during yoga teacher training, Mayleen fell in love with Kirtan. Bhakti (devotional) yoga was calling out to her soul. In 2018, Mayleen followed that call, was trained in Bhakti yoga, and purchased her first harmonium. She has been sharing her songs through meditation and Kirtan ever since.
