This event is for those who aspire to enjoy the fun and vibe of Kirtan and for those who wish to enhance their Yoga practice with chanting and music! Kirtan helps to open the voice and teaches us to love the sound that comes from our bodies.

This is a FREE event!

Joe, a yoga and meditation instructor who also plays the guitar and harmonium, will lead you through an enjoyable evening of Kirtan. No experience is necessary to enjoy the fun of Kirtan.

*What is kirtan?
Originating with the medieval devotional practice known as Bhakti yoga, kirtan is in Indian tradition of call-and-response vocal music, often accompanied by a variety of instruments. Traditional accompaniments include the harmonium and tabla drums. Today, kirtan is still usually sung in Sanskrit.

What are kirtan songs like?

Kirtan songs are simple, repetitive chants. Some can last as long as half as hour. The artist leading the kirtan (the name also refers to the live music event) starts out. Then, the listeners "respond" to his or her "call." Songs often get louder and faster as the chant goes on. Most are based around mantras (sounds, words or phrases believed to have spiritual meaning).

What is the environment at a kirtan concert?
Some Western students might be surprised when they attend a kirtan event. Since each audience member participates in the chanting, distinction between performers and audience is minimal. You sit on the floor (on in a chair if you prefer). Many kirtan-goers contend that the experience of being at an event is like meditation, in that it is intensely peaceful and relaxing.

Going to a kirtan event is a great way to explore meditation from a different perspective. If you are social, love music, or both, this can be a good introduction to it.
