What is Kirtan?

Kirtan is call-and-response chanting, a form of yoga for the voice done in a group accompanied by music. It requires no background or training, and is easily learnt. Repeating Sanskrit mantras creates a meditative and uplifted mental state, and helps to melt inhibitions that can suppress your voice and expression. You add your voice to those around you, creating a sense of harmony. Some people feel a sense of calm, others a sense of elation- it's a great way to unblock emotions and a sense of being stuck. The words and melodies are simple and repeated so that you can get into a rhythm and enter a more meditative state conducive to letting go.


Brighton Kirtan is a  monthly  Kirtan evening held on the second Friday of evening month restarting on 12th October. It is hosted by one of a team of  Kirtan singers, including Narayani, Haripyari and Bhakti Swan.
