12 Days of Kirtan, with Bradford Smith,

a series of 12 Kirtans during the holiday season, hosted at yoga studios and in the homes of fellow yogis in St. Louis Missouri.

The 12 Days of Kirtan came to me when I asked myself what would bring me the most joy this holiday season. It was easy, Kirtan, I always feel great afterwards.  And when I realized that I had the entire holiday season free, then why not fill it up.  This will be acoustic, sitting in a circle, focusing the energy, and singing from the heart.   For many of the nights musicians from the Bhavantu band will sit in along with me, and each night will have its own special energy.

Bradford Smith and the Bhavantu Band

Developing a Kirtan sound with influences from traditional Haidakhan chants along with original songs, Bradford and the Bhavantu Band are creating a unique and accessible sound that will inspire the beauty and joy of Ecstatic Kirtan and Bhakti music.

After discovering the world of Kirtan, or Bhakti music while touring performing his Native American Flute music he put his heart and energies in creating the connection with the audience that magically happens during a Kirtan.  Performing mostly in the St. Louis Missouri region he recently returned from Bhakti Fest Midwest performing with the Bhavantu Band.
