Gopi Kallayil
Tuesday, November 1

Kirtan Lounge

7:30pm • $10 thru Oct 31, $15 day of
Kirtan Lounge, as with many things in life, started as a dreamy experiment when Gopi Kallayil asked Ananta Govinda if they could collaborate and perform sacred music in the Bhakti yoga tradition of call and response singing—kirtan—and make it a love offering to the divine. That intention then flowed from the heart and into the ether and evolved into an album plus live performances around California and at Burning Man. Tonight at East West, Gopi and Ananta are joined by a few kirtan musicians from Google (where Gopi works) and other professionals kirtan musicians in the area. KirtanLounge.bandcamp.com
