"It is the calling, the crying, the reaching across infinite space,

digging into the heart's deepest well to touch and be touched by Divine Presence."    Jai Uttal

 

 

 

 

What is Kirtan?  It is sacred call-&-response chanting originally performed in India's Bhakti community. It began centuries ago as a devotional worship, and was known as the layman's way to connect with the Divine. The Sanskrit chants are ancient traditionals considered to contain transformative power and healing energy. And I personally find that the power in mantras and chants is simply in their ability to attune consciousness. 

 

The Kirtan ensemble Kirtankara (a Pure Bhakti Devotion) has been in existence for nearly two years now, assembled from a group of like-minded spirits and dear friends, who also happen to be professional musicians, with, collectively, over 30 years of experience making music, and extensive experience in yoga and meditation. Our very first order of business as an ensemble was 2016's summer series hosted by the Center For Spiritual Living Granada Hills.  We received such a fantastic response, and got so much out of the experience, that we began officially offering our services to the spiritual and soul-tending community at large.  In our first year alone, we performed Kirtan at the Center For Spiritual Living Granada Hills, Center for Spiritual Living Simi Valley, the Center for Applied Consciousness Yoga Studio, the Topanga Canyon Farmer's Market, the Marina del Rey Farmer's Market, and recently completed a monthly residency at Inner Power Yoga in Woodland Hills.
