This year, there is a world music tour that cannot be missed! A percussionist, a mystic poet and a multi-‐instrumentalist create incredible improvisational sound, skillfully playing traditional eastern instruments with a western sensibility.
The Hanumen transport listeners to unforgettable evening of world music, mystic poetry and mantra chanting -‐ a musical journey to the deepest part of the soul.Mantra Music is a reincarnation of the ancient Indian practice of Kirtan, call-‐and-‐response group chanting, practiced for millennia by the people of South Asia. Today, this music offers a fresh perspective on holistic entertainment as participants both hear the music as an audience and help to create it responding withtheir own voices.
The Hanumen create a soulful and ecstatic celebration of Naada Yoga (the yoga of sacred sound and vibration) and Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of love and devotion in complete surrender) with an array of unique instruments from around the globe. They deliver a mesmerizing participatory event of chanting, world rhythm, poignant stories and mystic poetry.
Who are The Hanumen? Named after Hanuman, a brave monkey featured in South Asian mythology, the Hanumen (pronounced “Ha-‐new-‐men”) are: John de Kadt (johndekadt.com), Benjy Wertheimer (benjymusic.com), Gaura Vani (gauravani.com), and Purusartha Dasa. Highly trained in the sacred music of India yet rooted in American blues, the Hanumen perform an original mix of song and story and call-‐and-‐response chant in English and Sanskrit. Their sound vibrations fill the senses with joy and encourage listeners to be the change they wish to see in the world. Join the Mantra Revolution!
