Kirtan Concert and Harmonium Workshop with Vaiyasaki Das

Known by many as the Godfather of kirtan, Vaiyasaki Das has been singing kirtan for more than 40 years, recording 12 kirtan albums in that time. He and his wife Kaisori, spend their life travelling the world sharing and teaching kirtan. In the 1970’s, after years in the music business as a rock and blues guitarist with a penchant for singing, Vaiyasaki embarked on a personal search for the Divine. His search led him to India, where he first heard the kirtan music that would change his life forever. He was so moved by kirtan that he resolved to dedicate his life to this form of yoga. Kirtan with Vaiyasaki Das and Kaisori is traditional, sincere and full of devotion.

The harmonium workshop guarantees you will learn 2 new kirtans by the end of the day! The workshop is suitable for the absolute beginner kirtanist through to more experienced kirtanists. You will learn some of the history and philosophy of the kirtan tradition, the raga system of music, plus there will be some vocal training and without doubt you will learn how to play the harmonium. Should you already know how to play the harmonium this workshop will be an opportunity for you to gain more kirtan insights and to refine your technique and facility of the harmonium. There will also be a session by Kaisori, who will teach the basics of kartels (or munjeera) the little hand cymbals which are so important in providing rhythm for the kirtan. We recommend booking early for the workshop as numbers will be limited.
