KirtanaRama grew out of Canberra’s vibrant and diverse Community Kirtan scene. We all met at regular local Kirtan gatherings, and now combine our talents in an initiative to introduce Kirtan and Bhakti Yoga to the wider Canberra community.
KirtanaRama’s current core members are Gregory (left) and Sajhu (right). We also welcome various local kirtanists to accompany us at our events. We also have guest performers from time to time (see below).
At KirtanaRama events, as with Canberra’s Community Kirtan gatherings, the role of the kirtanist is passed from one band member to the next; everyone gets to contribute equally. The Kirtan is completely interactive. Everyone present, including the kirtanists and the responders, are invited to contribute with their physical presence, their voices, and simple hand percussion instruments. Spontaneous dancing is also encouraged and supported.
The uplifting and transformative nature of Kirtan and its inclusive and engaging presentation mean anyone can take part and benefit from the experience.
KirtanaRama would love to take you on these mystical, musical journeys. We thrive on helping people find their amazing potential with our multi-spectral musical offerings.

Thank you so much for such a beautiful evening. I was driving on the way feeling really down due to some life stuff and I left feeling totally exuberant! I love Kirtan, I'm a singing teacher and eventually want to lead my own Kirtans and write my own peace/meditation music. So glad I can be involved and thank you for doing Om Mani Pade Me Hum. That's one of my favourites! Can't wait to experience more. ❤️
