I had the pleasure of leading kirtan at one of the first New York screenings of this film on Sunday March 18
Happy to share a few photos from the evening and a short video of some “Devi Pranamah” at screening of Mantra - Sounds into Silence at the Rubin Museum of Art Noah Hoffeld on cello, Tom Cucinotta on mridanga, and Keli Lalita Yoga and Kirtan in kartals and responses.

Mantra — Sounds into Silence is a feature-length documentary, that, through the eyes and ears of its’ protagonists, explores the new music and social phenomenon of chanting. It showcases both intimate Kirtan gatherings and large concert performances by artists like Deva Premal & Miten with Manose, Krishna Das, and Snatam Kaur, to name just a few. We also learn about the artists paths to chanting and we hear in depth stories from some of the many people who have benefited from Kirtan. It’s a film about spirituality not religion, it’s about people reconnecting with their true selves and finding ways to navigate through life more peacefully.
