Bhakti: A Kirtan Album, CD

In this CD, Mandala explores the deep connections between Christian and Yogic spirituality with an album of kirtan–the call-and-response devotional singing sometimes known as “yoga chant.” The words include both Sanskrit mantras and Biblical texts in English. Use it as part of a daily devotional chanting practice, to enhance a yoga class, or just for listening.

“These accomplished musicians and singers have created an album of devotional music that is an intricate blending of sounds and styles. They bring in Indian, Turkish, Celtic and Gregorian chant music and create a soaring beautiful collection of kirtan chants… All the music on this album is stunning, tightly performed and beautiful. It is an album best suited for a fan of devotional music, especially one that longs for an alternative to more mainstream Christian Gospel or traditional kirtan albums. Practitioners of ‘Holy Yoga’ may be particularly drawn to it, and its message would be a fantastic background to any yoga class with a Christian theme.” –Elephant Journal
