Event Details

About 

The Kirtan Band welcome you to this very special evening of devotion at the beautiful Mahadevi Yoga Centre.

The band are a passionate and dedicated group of musicians who will be performing live Kirtan in a form that is authentic and traditional. They combine the singing of intricate melodies of the Eastern subcontinent with subtle guitar solos and inventive hand drumming. 

Joining In

The pieces will be led by Sulekh Ruparell, a professional Indian musician with over 20 years of experience and an expert in devotional singing. The songs and mantra are based on Raga (Indian scales) and are sung in the ancient language of Sanskrit where the external sounds become internal vibrations.

In Kirtan singing, listeners are encouraged to join in as the artists present a unique style that creates a wonderful energy and elevates the consciousness.

You will be able to enjoy this event at many levels from simply appreciating the music to participating in the songs as each line is repeated by the artists. Simple and easy-to-follow, Kirtan is a wonderful source of relaxation for mind and body.
