All of us share an interest in sacred chant known as "kirtan," a devotional practice of singing, drumming, and participating in group energy for the purpose of elevating the spirit, building community, and realizing interconnectedness. The practice originated in India millennia ago, but has been popularized in the West by singers such as Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, Wah!, Dave Stringer, Deva Premal, Bhagavan Das, David Newman (Durga Das), etc. This list will be a place to share information about local kirtan events and other sacred/vibrational singing, music, and/or drumming in the Metro DC area.
