This is a group for anyone who enjoys Kirtan, Bhajan and Mantra. The pieces are easy-to-follow and sung in traditional Hindi and Sanskrit. They are led by Sulekh Ruparell, a trained Indian classical musician with over 20 years of experience who specialises in Vocal, Harmonium and Tabla. Whilst listeners are encouraged to participate in the songs, beginners are very welcome to simply come an enjoy the music. Devotional singing is relaxing and fun, brings peace of mind and helps to make us aware of our true nature. 

Sulekh is able to deliver a large repertoire of devotional songs so there is always something for everyone to enjoy in his Kirtan programs. By combining his musical knowledge of Indian scales (Raag) and rhythm (Taal) with his spiritual dedication, Sulekh is able to deliver Kirtan that is natural and authentic.  

Sulekh is the founder and composer of The Kirtan Band and if you'd like to get an idea of how he presents Kirtan, then you'll find the latest videos and tracks at  You can also view previous Meetup videos on the new dedicated Youtube channel here. Feel free to subscribe and see videos of all our new performances.

Here is a clip of The Kirtan Band Live in early 2015.

We very much look forward to seeing you!
