Kirtan! Evening of Ecstatic Chant with Jai Uttal, Gaura Vani and Friends
Grammy-nominated Jai Uttal is a pioneer in the world music community with his eclectic "East meets West" sound. A childhood in New York City's music scene gave way to studies with the legendary musician Ravi Shankar and pilgrimages to India, singing ancient call-and-response kirtan in the temples of the revered saint Neem Karoli Baba. He now makes music to unite hearts and cultures and bring peace. Originating in devotional Bhakti yoga, his concerts of kirtan create spiritual connection and compassionate community. Jai Uttal's recordings include "Queen of Hearts", "Kirtan Kids", "Shiva Station" and "Mondo Rama".
Kirtan artist Gaura Vani learned sacred music in a temple school in Vrindavan, India. Chanting ancient prayers in Sanskrit and Bengali and playing harmonium and mrdanga, he shares the magic he received there with audiences around the world.
Kirtan: An Evening of Ecstatic Chant will lift the spirit and inspire dancing and chanting with the artists. This sacred music form is for all people: there are no experts, no beginners, and the practice itself guides us home to ourselves and into a sense of divine presence or simply joy.
Presented by Grace Productions, this evening concert is offered in partnership with the Oneness-Family School, Flow Yoga, Willow Street Yoga, Circle Yoga, Lil Omm Yoga and Beloved Yoga.
