Anandra George studies Hindustani classical music in New Delhi at the feet of master teacher Pandit Baldev Raj Verma of the Indore Gharana. She is also a well-known international teacher of Sanskrit Mantra for meditation and practical life transformation. She invites her students and audiences into the “heart of sound,” the Self that shines through music and mantra.
Kirtan with Anandra is a heavenly experience of call and response mantra chanting set to Indian classical ragas. We begin the saturation in sacred sound with call-and-response raga singing on the Sanskrit vowel of ananda (bliss) shakti, A… then sing the names of the Beloved in simple melodies, gradually building to ecstatic intensity. When the raga has reached its fullness, we dissolve the sound back into the stillness of the void. Join us… Discover the worlds within worlds of each musical mood, within each mantric syllable, and release the nectar of your own uniquely sweet devotional voice.
