My wish is to share the beauty and joy of kirtan with you. Kirtan is a yogic practice which uses mantras (sound vibrations) to create harmony within and to raise and refine the consciousness. The mantras used are usually in Sanskrit, the ancient and pure language of the yogis and AKSHARA are the vibrations forming their foundation. These are the imperishable sounds of the universe. There are 8 kirtans recorded on this CD and each has its own very individual and unique sound due to a blend of varying instruments and a layering and harmonizing of voices. The kirtans range from the quiet and melodic, to kirtans that make you want to get up and dance! My desire was to share the different moods of kirtan with those familiar to kirtan as well as those who have no experience of the practice.
