Bharati & Dinesh

Devotional Singing

About


Bharati and Dinesh have been singing, chanting and sharing the path of devotion with our local community for the past thirteen years. We are lucky to live a beautiful part of the Cotswolds, near Stroud, where people love to sing.

Our music is a combination of Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh and English mantras, songs and chants, accompanied by harmonium, guitar and tabla or dholak (Indian drum). We have been inspired by the music of Goma, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, Amma, Jai-Jagdeesh and many others.

Since holding our first satsang evening in our home in 2006 we share regular kirtan events in Stroud and have been asked to play at various yoga camps and festivals, interfaith celebrations and retreats, weddings and birthday celebrations.

We feel very clear that sharing kirtan is not about performing, or about 'us'; but more about creating a space together where we can let go into the deepest part of ourselves; a space where we can connect with the more profound aspects of life, touching the very essence of the rejuvenating power of awareness in this present moment.

No great singing ability is required, nor an affiliation with any spiritual path; just a willingness to share in the simple joy of singing and chanting together, connecting with ourselves and others in a deeper way.
