Mangalananda: Kirtan Concert


Mangalananda: Kirtan Concert on September 3, 2016 in San Rafael, CA : Mangalananda has recorded nine CD's over the years, all in studios in India. This year an inspiration came to him to record an album with American dev otional musicians that would provide aesthetically beautiful settings for people to chant the ancient mantras with. To do this, he gathered some of the finest kirtan musicians in the Bay Area to support him in this project. Together they made a music video and there was a huge and loving response worldwide from the kirtan community and the Kickstarter goal was reached. They have now recorded the album “Auspicious Bliss” to bring the mantras alive, give them beautiful settings and to capture the spirit of authentic kirtan. So it's time for a CD Release Concert and Party on Sept 3rd!
Performing with Mangalananda are Prajna Vieira from the band Mukti; David Estes from his band Ananda Rasa Kirtan; Ramana Erickson on tabla; Greg Barnett on bass and acoustic classical; Bob Couillard on twelve-string acoustic; Susan Shloss on violin and Dharma Devi DeLong on flutes. This experienced “Super Group” presents the chants with a shared chemistry, artistry and enthusiasm that places kirtan on a new artistic & spiritual level. Come and share the Auspicious Bliss!
