Daniel "Sahaj" Ticotin (born April 5, 1969), is an American musician, vocalist, guitarist, record producer, and member of the rock band, Ra.[1] Sahaj was born to a Puerto Rican mother and a Russian-Jewish father, the brother of motion picture and television actress, Rachel Ticotin. During a pilgrimage to India in 1992, he studied meditation and was given the name "Sahaj". He currently lives in Tarzana, California, where he produces and composes for various artists.

Sahaj held the record for longest single note, for a male vocalist, in a song, having held a high B for 24 seconds. He was overtaken by Jan Werner Danielsen of Norway with 28 seconds in his live version of Nella Fantasia.[citation needed] This record breaker can be heard on Ra's live album, Raw, on the track "Skorn". Sahaj Ticotin overtook the previous record of 20.2 seconds which was held by Morten Harket, the lead singer of a-ha, in the song, "Summer Moved On".[citation needed]

He has produced Downstait under his own company, Sahaja Music Records.[2]

Sahaj is currently working beside Meytal Cohen and Fronts The Band “Meytal” with lead vocals (2017–present), lead/rhythm guitar, bass, and backing vocals.
