Kirtan is a very simple & powerful way to meditate. It’s effortless & joyful; the music does the work for you as you flow with the melody & rhythm. Kirtan is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. Kirtan is non-denominational, the Universal language of Spirit, the song of the Soul.
No previous musical experience is needed. This is an exploration of the heart, independent of vocal or musical technique.
