About the event: Kirtan is the sacred tradition of call-and-response chanting, brought to us from India. Kirtan is one of the principal activities of Bhakti Yoga (the path of devotion). The chants come from the Hindu tradition, but people of all faiths and cultural backgrounds participate in kirtan – it is in essence a meditation, repeating the names of the God, turning inward towards ourselves. We experience the energy and vibrations of communal singing, connecting to the Divine and each other, opening our hearts and quieting our minds. Everyone participating contributes to the experience, emanating loving energy to the universe.
About the artist: Kirtan Path has been singing with the greater Twin Cities kirtan community since 2009. They participated in several local festivals over the years, such as the Twin Cities Kirtan Festival, the Twin Cities Yoga Festival, India in Iowa, and the Inner Peace Festival. They were honored to sing at the Inaugural Bhakti Fest Midwest in 2012 where they were dubbed “Midwest wallah to watch” by the Bhakti Beat. They were re-invited to the 2013 and 2014 festivals. They released their debut CD, Samgayati – A Gathering in Song, in June 2013. In 2018, they played at the first annual Midwest Yoga and Kirtan fest in Madison, WI.
Kirtan Path currently consists of the wife/husband team Parvati (harmonium/vocals) and Doug (mrdanga). A regular guest musician, Aubrey, joins for the third-Saturday events every month (alternating between the St. Paul and Minneapolis locations).
