Ancient Mantra + Modern Groove

New! Hearts Tuned In album now available. Click Music to Listen. Click Shop to Buy.

Welcome to the web site for Bhagavan Kirtan! …sacred singing and chanting in Sanskrit that opens the heart. Kirtan is a tradition of call and response singing in the devotional branch of yoga — bhakti yoga. Kirtan produces transcendent, meditational experience, and inspires a marvelous energy. Bruce and Kris began Bhagavan Kirtan! in 2011 to bring their passion for Kirtan music to Colorado Springs, Colorado. Through original musical arrangements of ancient Sanskrit mantras and employing a variety of instrumentation, Bhagavan Kirtan! creates a unique and powerful Kirtan experience. Bruce and Kris enjoy playing with local musicians and frequently invite their talents to join them at special events.

I loved your Kirtan, I went home and I felt so amazing! I told my husband that it was the closest to God I had ever felt. Megan

Are you nervous about chanting or unsure what kirtan is? It’s typically chanted in a call and response format, as the leader sings a phrase and the group sings it back over and over again. Kirtan is a form of devotional yoga and leans toward the spiritual side of yoga, allowing you to connect with your own divinity. You’re not required to chant at all if you’re not comfortable with it, but either way, you’ll undoubtedly find the energy in the room incredibly uplifting and enjoy the beautiful experience of kirtan!

Jai Uttal

Kirtan is for all people. There are no experts, no beginners. The practice itself is the teacher, guiding us to ourselves. Kirtan allows us to enter into a mystery world: a world where all the logic of our minds and all of the conditioning are left aside. With Kirtan, we create a temple inside the altar of our hearts: a place of refuge, a place of love, and a place of just being.


I loved your Kirtan, I went home and I felt so amazing! I told my husband that it was the closest to God I had ever felt.
