Kirtan

Led by: Nina Rao

From May 18, 2019 at 7:00 pm until May 18, 2019 at 9:00 pm at Gowanus

Join Nina Rao in the ancient bhakti yoga practice of kirtan - call-and-response chanting. Bhakti is devotion - devotion to the Love that connects us all. The repetition of the Divine Names accompanied by music with a group of like-minded seekers helps each one of us to quiet the mind and open the heart. The chants are meditative and prayerful and invoke the deep space of well-being that is within each one of us. No experience is required and word sheets will be provided.

Nina Rao first learned traditional chants from her grandfather as a young girl while on summer holiday in a village in south India. The chants quietly stayed with her until she rediscovered chanting with Krishna Das in New York in 1996. Her first studio release is the track 'Nina Chalisa' on Krishna Das' CD "Flow of Grace - Chanting the Hanuman Chalisa" released in 2007. By popular demand from those who chant live with Nina, she released her debut double-CD album “Antarayaami – Knower of All Hearts” in January 2013 that has become a ‘classic’ for many chant listeners. Five years later, she has released her second album “Anubhav”. Nina continues to manage Krishna Das’s business and tours with him, and also leads kirtans, workshops, and retreats of her own.
