Join us for an evening of music, mantras, storytelling and joyful noisemaking hosted by Andrea Klunder, Eric Majeski & Mark Lerro Lerro!
Kirtan is a practice of Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of devotion), singing and chanting and playing music to honor the Divine in all of us.
This gathering is for kirtan newbies and veterans alike. It's a unique interactive space where we will bring YOU into the creation of kirtan and the offering of bhakti through call & response vocals.
Chant leaders will pass the mic supported by SaTsoniK, our house band of talented musicians.
Do you play harmonium, guitar, percussion, other instruments?
Do you want to lead, sing response vocals, play in the band?
Or do you want to learn how?
Contact Andrea Klunder, Kirtan Director & MC or RSVP & post a comment here. Musicians will be confirmed in advance.
No registration fee, we will "pass the hat" to support the growth of this event community style. Suggested donation $10.
Please bring your cash donation, your voice, friends, and a treat to share if you like (for prasad, an offering infused with the energy of the music and intentions).
We begin at 8pm. If you need to arrive a little late, that's okay. Musicians please arrive by 7:30pm to set up.
