Kirtan is a practice of mantra chanting that stills the mind and frees the heart. Sung in call-and-response form, ecstasy is both the process and the product. Stringer’s sound infuses the mysticism of traditional Indian instruments with the exuberant intensity of American gospel and jazz, and he is regarded as one of the most gifted singers in the genre.
An engaging speaker with an unorthodox perspective, he has a special ability for making the Sanskrit chants come alive and inspiring people to sing. His work creates a modern and participatory theatrical experience out of the ancient traditions of kirtan and yoga, open to a multiplicity of interpretations, and accessible to all. Based in Los Angeles, since 2000 Stringer and his ensemble have produced 6 CDs and toured North America, Europe and Australia tirelessly.
