From the darkness to the light - Waheguru
Anand Kirtan and her husband Tom, have spent the last few years writing and performing beautiful acoustic devotional music together, which touches the heart and soul. Their music is a blend of world, soul, new age and mantra. Difference styles of chanting such as Sanskrit, Gurmukhi, Gregorian, Buddhist, African and Gaelic are interwoven with words and harmony to produce music that is joyous, uplifting and inspirational. They are so blessed to have three sons who are becoming accomplished musicians in their own right and who often join them on stage to perform as a family.
Anand Kirtan also teaches kundalini yoga in the UK and abroad, working with children, teenagers and adults to help them find their peace and space during turbulent times. Modern living, with its heavy emphasis on social media and the worship of the material is taking its toll on our younger generations. There is an increase in fear, anxiety, anger, apathy and doubt. The practice of yoga, with chanting and music involved is an oasis of calm in a sandstorm. Anand attends the Quinta Do Rajo ashram a few times a year to study with her spiritual teacher, Shiv Charan Singh and to be in sangat (community) to recharge the batteries, so that she can work in her community with love and compassion, holding space for people through yoga, music, listening, asking the right questions and giving some perspective to people who are caught up in busy and stressful lives.
