Revival of Our Common Heritage


Kirtan Lounge “Precious Jewels”

“Precious Jewels” – is the collective effort of many talented musicians who shared their artistic gifts in this project. As the pictures here attest, this was an exciting journey and labor of love that spanned seven countries and three years in making.

Kirtan Lounge started as a dreamy experiment when Gopi and Ananta decided to collaborate on performing and producing Kirtan and make it a love offering to the yoga community and world music lovers. This year Kirtan Lounge celebrates 5th anniversary with a new album release and an array of music videos!
