An Evening of Chanting with Dave Stringer
Kirtan is a folk musical form that arose from the 15th century Indian devotional Bhakti yoga movement. Kirtan’s primary musical feature is the use of call and response, a figure that also deeply informs Western bluegrass, gospel music and jazz. Take part in an event tonight where you can experience Dave Stringer’s sound, which marries transcendent mysticism of traditional Indian instruments with the exuberant, groove-oriented sensibility of American gospel. Stringer’s music creates a modern and participatory theatrical experience out of the ancient traditions of kirtan and yoga, open to a multiplicity of interpretations, and accessible to all. 8 p.m. at Silver Lake's Urth Yoga. Tickets are $25.
