Kirtan is part of an ancient form of yoga known as bhakti or the yoga of devotion. It is the practice of singing the many names of the Divine. This practice of calling to the divine creates a bridge between the individual and the eternal, opening the heart and welcoming the spirit. Sometimes soft and meditative and sometimes loud and wildly rhythmic, Kirtan takes the participant on a deep emotional and musical journey through our mostly unexplored inner world. With solo performance and call-and-response group chanting, Jai creates a space of invocation, prayer, and heartfelt expression.
Jai Uttal is a pioneer in the world music community. His eclectic sound has put his music at the forefront of the world fusion movement. Jai's musical roots embrace a rich variety of cultures and traditions that span the globe and the centuries. From the music of the Appalachian Mountains to the passionate strains of Bengali street singers, Jai's music distills the essence of diverse musical forms. Don't miss this chance to chant and dance with one of the world-leading artists!
