The Path of Kirtan

This workshop explores the ancient practices of singing, devotional chant, and rhythm. It is an immersion in the luminous ocean of music through voice, mantra, devotion, movement, and meditation. The Path of Kirtan creates a sacred space for safe and playful exploration in a group setting. Participants can then journey together to more clearly and deeply connect with the divine Presence.

Dive into a sacred ocean of raga with bamboo flute master Steve Gorn and renowned multi-instrumentalist Benjy Wertheimer. Although Steve Gorn and Benjy Wertheimer had not yet met, they'd been hearing about each other for nearly 20 years. Finally, in January of 2001, Krishna Das invited them both to Los Angeles to record on his CD, "Breath of the Heart." During breaks in the recording schedule, they instantly began to play together. Music without words... Esraj and flute weaving the melodic contours of a raga... Flute and tabla meeting in a spontaneous rhythmic dance. It was clearly the beginning of a deep and powerful musical relationship.

About The Ragas
The musical form at the heart of traditional Indian classical music, the raga or (or "rag," in modern Hindi/Urdu) has its roots in the Sanskrit "ranj," which means "to color." It is sometimes said, "that which colors the mind is the raga." A raga defies simple definition. More than a scale, mode, tune or melody, it is a combination of elements, such as the modal structure, including the ascending and descending movement, the emphasis or avoidance of certain notes, the characteristic movements and motifs (the heart of the raga), the time of day or season, and the moods of the raga.

Steve Gorn
Steve Gorn has performed Indian Classical Music and new American Music on the bansuri bamboo flute in concerts and festivals throughout the world. His gurus are the late bansuri master Sri Gour Goswami, of Kolkata, and Pt. Raghunath Seth of Mumbai, who he often accompanies in concert. He has also studied with the late Ustad Z.M. Dagar. His numerous recordings and international performances establish him as a world-class musician. www.stevegorn.com

Benjy Wertheimer is an award-winning songwriter, vocalist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, who has toured and recorded with numerous great artists. He has studied Indian classical music for over 25 years with some of the greatest masters of that tradition, including Alla Rakha, Zakir Hussain, Ali Akbar Khan and Z.M. Dagar. He is a founding member of the internationally acclaimed Ancient Future world fusion music ensemble. www.shantalamusic.com
