Gaura-Shakti Holds Debut Concert!

1:24:00 AM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav) , , , , , 5 comments

On Sunday, January 25, 2009, Toronto's brand new kirtan yoga band debuted at the Hare Krishna Temple.  "Gaura-Shakti", a Toronto-based kirtan troupe, led an evening of sacred mantras and devotional chants (kirtan) performed in a call-and-response style. 


Kirtan yoga allows a musical tapestry to fill the heart and lift the spirit in a soul-piercing journey into the sublime. From transcendentally mellow kirtans that will move the heart to kirtan that will have you joyfully dancing, kirtan yoga can be a transcendent experience!
 
Invoking ancient mantras and using beautiful instruments like harmonium, mrdanga-drum, bamboo flute, base guitar and more, Gaura-Sakti hopes to help introduce the power of kirtan to Toronto's vast yoga community!

The following is a small video presentation with clips from the evening's concert:
