Renee Ananda & Aim Me Smiley have been best friends since their early teens when they met at an evangelical church where Renee's dad was the pastor. Aim Me's father became deacon, riled a mutiny and kicked Renee's dad out of the church. Renee and Aim Me remained friends and 12 years later- on a different spiritual journey- they fell in love. They shared a mutual vision of being traveling musicians who inspire revolution of the spirit and courage of the heart. Following their bliss and freeing their dream, they picked up a guitar and an accordion and moved to New Orleans to become Troubadours of Divine Bliss.They started as street performers in the French Quarter and have since toured all over America, Canada, Scandinavia & Europe- including the Intll Festival of Music where they were chosen to represent the US. The Troubadours have 9 recordings, with a tenth in the works. They are spiritual, environmental, and social justice activists who sing of the Love that springs from within, respect for the Earth, human rights and healing the heart.In 2008, they founded Mighty Kindness in Louisville,KY to create a circle of sustainability, connection in community and to empower kindness. The Mighty Kindness Hoots are community unity festivals that celebrate all that is kind for the Earth, body, soul & mind in order to effect change locally and coalesce the visions of a greener, happier and more just society. In 2018, they created a 64 acre Nature Preserve & Retreat Center called Way of the Heart Woods. The Troubadours of Divine Bliss are musicians, inspirational speakers, writers, celebrants, healing guides, retreat and workshop facilitators. They are in the process of writing a book about their story and creating a Podcast that brings together all of their passions and reignites the fire of love in all aspects of living. They perform weekly on their Web Series, "Sundays with Bliss" at www.youtube.com/divinebliss at 7pm est. When they are not touring, they are nestled in As You Wish Woods in their so Indiana hOMestead creating, devoting & giving thanks.
