“Los Angeles based Kirtaniyas are a global Kirtan collective from London (UK), Hilo (Hawaii), Hamburg (Germany) and Gainesville (Florida). These energetic, multitalented 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. Lead vocalist Vijay first met electronic music producer and mridanga drummer Nitai in 2003 in the sacred village of Vrindavana, India while studying devotional Indian folk music known as “Kirtan”. This rare traditional art form is an ancient call-and-response devotional mantra chanting practice, that originated in the Indian subcontinent over 5000 years ago. Joined together with his musically gifted wife Sarasvati, soulful vocalist, Rasika, and drummer Nitai, Vijay formed “Kirtaniyas” in 2009. The four have since travelled the world to over 15 countries infusing new life to these ancient chants with youthful spirit and energy. Early 2012 saw the release of the long anticipated first album called “Heart & Soul” through Silenzio (Europe) and White Swan Records (USA). Funded largely by the groups growing fan base, the album debuted at #11 on the itunes World music chart. All the band members are multi-instrumentalists accomplished in traditional Indian style vocals, harmonium, classical violin, tabla and mrdanga drums, hand cymbals, bells, gub gubi and electronic music production. They have collaborated with artists such as Kula Shaker, Cheb i Sabbah, The Polish Ambassador, MC Yogi, Jai Uttal, DJ Drez, Hiatus, SaQi and others.”

Sirgun Kaur Live in Concert
There has never been any question in Sirgun Kaur’s mind what she should do “when she grew up.” From collecting nursery rhymes as an infant, to sharing her adolescent woes with a sympathetic piano, or touring the United States as a singer-songwriter in her early 20s, music has always been an anchor in Sirgun’s life. It was not until she discovered Kundalini Yoga, chanting, and mantra, however, that she understood the transformative and healing potential of music. In a word: magical! Since then, Sirgun has released four albums of sacred chants: Reclaim Your Happiness, Dayaal, The Cosmic Gift, and The Music Within. Sirgun’s first two albums were funded entirely through the generous support of her global fanbase, for which she is infinitely grateful. She lives in Phoenix, AZ, with her husband and son.

Citizen Diplomacy Workshop
Level 2: Global
In recent years, a new kind of Citizen has emerged: Citizens who can no longer wait for government to solve the world’s growing problems: Citizens who must speak, act and stand for what they believe in: Citizens with the courage to cross the borders of personal, political, ideological beliefs to embrace the oneness of all humanity.
Based on principles found in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, this course presents the possibilities of training in peace strategies and demonstrates how our conflict as individuals relates to global conflict. Citizen diplomacy is a path of exploring how both can be transformed and used constructively as a dynamic force for positive change.
