about

The Kirtan Choir is more of an idea than a "band". Taking it's name from the ancient Indian practice of kirtan, in which devotees seek to achieve a state of ecstasy through the repetition of sacred names, this experimental chamber orchestra approaches music with a minimalism that focuses on listening to something larger than the sum of it's parts for inspiration. Each manifestation of the group features different instrumentation and personnel. But the idea of this intimate, sonic simplicity and egalitarian focus on listening to the whole rather than showcasing the individuals is ever consistent.
