And last but not least, YOU! Every time we do Kirtan, everyone in the room is in the band. Never been in a band before? Well we most certainly welcome you to come sing, clap, and dance along!
We are a Kirtan group based in Asheville, North Carolina. We have been leading Kirtan every week in Asheville for 11 years now. Directly translated, Sangita Devi means Songs of the Divine Mother. Over the years we have been fortunate to play with many of the premier Kirtan Wallahs including Jai Uttal, Dave Stringer, Donna Delorey, Bhagavan Das and David Newman – to name a few.
Our Kirtan style can be best described as deep, ecstatic, powerful and driving. We have also gained a reputation for creating some of the most powerful New Years Eve celebrations around! We are very grateful to be part of Asheville’s wonderful Bhakti community!
