Known as a Rumi for our time, US-based singer-songwriter Kirtana returns to her beloved Australia this April, to share her contemporary, sacred music. Labelled as a ‘brilliant poet, marvellous songwriter and lovely guitarist’, Kirtana’s music conveys the all-permeating truth and love that exists within and surrounds us all.
“It’s nice sometimes to hear the same teaching in slightly different words expressed again…listening to (Kirtana’s music) is a beautiful meditation in itself.” Eckhart Tolle.
Enchanted with Australia on her inaugural tour 2 years ago, Kirtana in turn captured the hearts of her Australian audiences with her soft, sacred tunes and insightful reflections. Kirtana began playing guitar and writing songs at the age of 11. Her 1997 meeting with her beloved teacher Gangaji proved to be a pivotal moment in Kirtana’s life with her music expressing the love and self-recognition sparked by that life-altering encounter. Since then Kirtana’s music has been an ever-deepening expression of ‘falling into Self’, or in her words, “a celebration of divine love and the truth of we are.”
“Kirtana’s music is a pure love transmission. Her lyrics, her voice, and her playing bring me to tears of joy.” Gangaji
Her concerts provide guests with an experience of deep, quieting, reflective moments, lightened by her witty, wry humor, and an ever-deepening exploration of the truth that lies within us all.
