What is Kirtan?

"Chanting removes the dust from the mirror of the soul." - David Newman aka Durga Das

Kirtan is an ancient form of vibrational sound healing, which is practiced through the call and response chanting of mantras. A mantra is a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of creating energetic transformation.1 At a Kirtan concert, the band or song leader introduces the chant by singing the call, and the audience participates by singing back the response. The song and energy build through the call and response rhythm, transforming everyone in the room - whether you consider yourself a "singer", are simply humming along, or are silently soaking in the vibration.
