Join us every Friday night for Kirtan, call-and-response chanting. Each week the kirtan is led by a different person from our Brooklyn chant community, the Vanaras, plus special events with other artists.

Chanting is a way of getting in touch with yourself. It’s an opening of the heart and letting go of the mind and thoughts. It deepens the channel of grace, and it’s a way of being present in the moment.
— Krishna Das

Nina

Nina learned traditional chants from her grandfather in a village in south India when she was nine years old. The chants quietly stayed with her until she rediscovered chanting with Krishna Das in New York in 1996. In 2007, she recorded a track "Nina Chalisa" on Krishna Das' CD, Flow of Grace. In 2013, she released her first CD: Antarayaami - Knower of All Hearts. She is also featured on Kirtan! a new live chant CD recorded at Brooklyn Yoga School. For more information, visit her website.
