This Saturday for Kirtan at EnChant: Mantra Meditation, we are very fortunate to have Ananda Monet presenting with us Join us in bringing 2016 forth with devotional singing and storytelling! "Ananda grew up in a family of musicians in Russia. She studied bhakti yoga and mantra music meditation and has cultivated a taste for the ancient practice of singing sacred Sanskrit mantras, called kirtan.
Having learnt Russian traditional music at college, Ananda discovered a link between Russian and Indian cultural roots, which has influenced her style profoundly. Her singing blends the two traditions in a unique way, bringing together the passionate notes of the Slavic folk and the beauty of the Eastern ragas. She released her debut Russian language album in 2007. Ananda now lives in the UK where she contributes to many mantra music projects and events. Her latest album Inevitable Time was launched in May 2015 at Camden Centre accompanied by Samadhi Dance"
