Tala System for Kirtan
This will be the definitive crash course in the traditional Vedic system of kirtan composition.
In this 2 hour introduction, we will learn to use the simple yet refined system of Vedic Tala (rhythm) for composing our favorite kirtan chants and songs.
While assembling our chants to symmetrical , intuitive rhythms, we will at once shed light on the naturalistic systems of Vedic cosmology, which provide the framework of all of its arts and philosophical systems.
Having been raised in an ashrama, whose central practice was kirtana, I studied rhythmic and spiritual traditions in India for the last 20 years, I am able to give simple keys to the universal wisdom of the ancient Indic cultures, which has been a pure mountain stream of wisdom for our world.
Don’t miss it! Each student should be sure to bring a notebook and pen and any musical instruments you please.
