Kirtan with Dave Stringer and special guests
Kirtan with Dave Stringer and special guests Rónán O'Snodaigh, Mari kennedy, JackHarrison and Robert Phair

The call and response form of mantra chanting known as Kirtan is a consciousness-transforming practice, directing the singers to vanish into the song as drops merge into the ocean. The form is simple: a lead group calls out the melodies. The crowd responds, clapping and dancing as the rhythms build and accelerate.

Yoga doesnt ask us to believe; it asks us to inquire and practice and experience until we can witness the truth in our own hearts.  The mantras are primarily recitations of names given to the divine. But perhaps the true understanding of the practice of kirtan can be found in the sense of unity, well-being and timelessness it elicits. The mantras quiet the mind, and the music frees the heart. Ecstasy is both the process and the product.


Dave Stringeris a Grammy-nominated producer, singer, composer and innovative modern Kirtan artist, profiled in publications all over the world. Stringers sound connects the transcendent mysticism of traditional Indian instruments with the exuberant, groove-oriented sensibility of American Gospel and the ringing harmonies of Appalachia.

Initially trained as a visual artist, filmmaker and jazz musician, Stringers focus shifted significantly after video editing work brought him to an ashram in India in 1990. It has also been informed by a subsequent period of service teaching meditation to prison inmates, and expanded by his interest and research in neuroscience.

An articulate and engaging public speaker, Stringer probes the dilemmas of the spirit with a wry and unorthodox sense of humor. His work intends to create a modern and participatory theatrical experience out of the venerable traditions of kirtan and yoga, open to a multiplicity of interpretations, and accessible to all.

I dont know which to prefer, the beauty of inflections, or the beauty of innuendoes. The blackbird whistling, or just after.
