Kirtronica-Sacred Ecstatic Dance and Chant-Kona
~Kirtronica-An ecstatic dance and chant experience~ Looking for a devotional dance experience?  Look no further. Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda lead people through an ecstatic dance journey that awakens the shakti, inspires devotional trance states and deepens the connection with the divine.  Imbued with the power of their own spiritual practice, they both sing and chant live with the addition of Ananda’s bansuri flute playing. Each song invokes specific healing effects on the body, mind, and spirit, drawing us into movement through mantras, beats, and live instrumentals. Whether singing along, moving to the rhythms, or just listening—Kirtronica is intended to awaken the sacred within all of us.   ‘Kirtronica’ is a term for a new genre of music that is currently being established in the yoga world which is electronic dance music combined with live Sanskrit/Indian chanting and singing over it. Jaya Lakshmi was one of the pioneers of ‘Kirtronica’ with her previous band “Lost at Last”, founded in Maui, Hawaii in 1997. Over the last few years Jaya Lakshmi has composed original electronic music using Ableton Live. Similar to the the Lost at Last sound, her new music is a mixture of house and tribal trance beats, with (recordings of) acoustic instruments like tabla, guitar, flute, and sarod.   “From the heart-opening strains of their sumptuous traditional kirtan to the wild blend of contemporary rhythms and sounds they call Kirtronica, Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda’s divine harmonies will keep you riding waves of devotion from the meditation hall to the dance floor, and most everyplace in between. ” ~ Janet Stone   ~Altar of Love Weekend Kona~ Are you the kind of person looking for heart opening events and community?
