What is Kirtan?
is call-and-response chanting, a form of yoga for the voice done in a
group accompanied by music. It requires no background or training, and
is easily learnt. Repeating Sanskrit mantras creates a meditative and
uplifted mental state, and helps to melt inhibitions that can suppress
your voice and expression. You add your voice to those around
you, creating a sense of harmony. Some people feel a sense of calm,
others a sense of elation- it's a great way to unblock emotions and a
sense of being stuck. The words and melodies are simple and repeated so
that you can get into a rhythm and enter a more meditative state
conducive to letting go. Narayani's kirtans are unique throughout the
world for their dynamism, creative use of the ancient mantras, range of
sounds, and ability to access so many routes to the calm place within.
Bhavana will release their new album at the end of May! See www.bhavanamusic.com!
