WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I had never attended a Kirtan before Tanya and Anna’s. Now I go whenever I can. It’s like wading into a peaceful pool of song and rhythm. The call and response format makes it accessible and the world music percussion give each song a different character and depth. Sometimes I instead of singing, I just lie back and let the song and rhythm wash over me. The result is refreshing and invigorating." - Sab
