What is Kirtan?
Kirtan is a very simple and powerful way to meditate. It’s effortless and joyful; the music does the work for you as you flow with the melody and rhythm. The performers & the concert-goers create the experience together. You can sing, dance, play shakers, sit and listen...anyway that you feel moved to partake in it. While singing is the heart of kirtan, no one cares what you sound like. In fact, the practice of kirtan is meant to connect you with your own unique voice.
Most chants are sung in Sanskrit or English. The ancient chants contain powerful renewing and transformative energy that helps us find balance and reconnect with the Divinity that resides within all of us. Kirtan is NOT a religion.
Kirtan began in India centuries ago. In the last twenty five years, it has become a phenomenon across the United States, and has transformed musically to appeal to the ears of American audiences.
It is a means of finding our way back to the core of our Being, to our heart, and to our connection with each other. At a kirtan concert
all voices merge together to become One Voice.
Love, Light & Harmony currently holds monthly kirtans in Fond du Lac, Menasha, Brookfield and West Bend. Special kirtan events are held through out Wisconsin and Minnesota. Please check our calendar and our fb event page for more information.
