Kirtan, a call-and-response chanting genre, is one of the oldest sacred music traditions from India. Through ancient Sanskrit mantras, Kirtan goes beyod the music itself, it unites all levels of consciousness and produces an energy that quiets the mind and takes one to a deeper experience of the Self. In the silence between the songs, one can feel the depth of the silence that lies within. Kirtan calms the mind and relaxes our body.

Swan Kirtan is a devotional chanting group of musicians from Maine. We play a fusion of Eastern and Western music. We offer chants from multiple faiths. Our kirtan is in traditional Indian raaga style.

“ Sweet chants and sweeter feelings.” - Jai Uttal

I can’t tell you what a difference your correct pronunciation makes to me. It’s wonderful. And the beautiful instrumentation is to be much admired. The CD makes me feel like I am back in India.
