THE HANUMAN PROJECT is a grass roots and cutting edge devotional music ensemble specializing in sacred mantra chant. Led by Patita Pavana Das (vocals, guitar, harmonium UK), supported by Matia Kalli (vocals, USA) and Ryan Narayan (percussion, guitar, USA) they weave together a vibrant blend of Mantra, Bhajan and South American medicine music. This group is dissolving boundaries and creating accessibility for devotional culture in the Yoga, Bhakti and Conscious Dance communities, worldwide.
Known for their highly accessible and deeply powerful Kirtan and Medicine Music offerings, The Hanuman Project will sweep you up into a whirlwind of chant ecstasy and then plunge in a lake of devotional nectar. You can find The Hanuman Project performing this year at Noisily Festival (UK) Beloved Festival (USA), and Bhakti Festival (USA).
Internationally based KIRTANIYAS are a global collective of energetic, multitalented artists. These twenty-somethings grew up in a Vedic culture of song, dance, philosophy and devotion between ashrams and temples both in India and the western world.
Joined together with musically gifted Sarasvati Dasi, soulful vocalist Rasika Dasi and producer Nitai Gaur Prem (Makhana), Vijay Krsna formed KIRTANIYAS in 2009. Members including Malini Taneja, Nakula Das, Jamuna Sheth and Atul Krsna have since travelled the World to over 20 countries infusing new life to these ancient chants with youthful spirit and energy. A full KIRTANIYAS presentation features up to seven of its members.
Besides the largely traditional approach to their acoustic sets, KIRTANIYAS now push the boundaries of genre to combine all of their passions into one new and unique sound. Melodious dance orientated “Worldbeat” music and subsonic bass meets the call and response singing of ancient Sanskrit mantras, accompanied by live acoustic instruments. This is where the boundaries between performers and audience become blurred, everybody is united in one voice and everybody becomes the band.
The YOGA FOREST is a sacred sanctuary with ancient Mayan altars and natural springs that have been protected as a Natural Reserve in order to honor the land and the heritage of its people.
Enjoy the peace and tranquility of mountains looking out over Lake Atitlán towards volcanoes San Pedro, Toliman and Atitlán.
