DC Supersonic Kirtan for All

Oct 27, 2016 09:52AM
Kirtan is call-and-response chanting of sacred sound accompanied by the playing of musical instruments. This enlivening spiritual practice is an integral part of the tradition of devotional yoga called Bhakti yoga that originated in India many centuries ago. Join the DC Supersonic Kirtan All-Stars for a transcendental kirtan party that will rock your socks off. The party takes place from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on November 5, in Rockville.

You don’t need to be from India, or do yoga, or have a great voice or subscribe to any particular spiritual belief to enjoy kirtan—just bring your open hearts, dancing feet and clapping hands. Come chant with us and stick around for free vegan cookies afterward. Kids are welcome. Chant sheets for the mantras are always provided.

DC Supersonic Kirtan is characterized by soulful and ecstatic chanting of ancient Sanskrit mantras, infused with both modern and traditional melodies and some of the most rockin’ live drumming you will ever experience.

Suggested Donation: $10 - $15. Location: Thrive Yoga, 1321 Rockville Pike, Ste. B, Rockville. For more information, visit them on FB at Facebook.com/DC-Supersonic-Kirtan-124750257577382/timeline/.
