Kirtan with GauraVani

Thank YOU to our GauraVani Kirtan Sponsors!


World renowned kirtan artist, Gaura Vani returns to share his love of sacred mantra music! Gaura Vani’s pure love of music is a true gift straight from the heart. The sweet sound-vibrations will permeate the layers of your being and open your heart. Don’t miss this fun night of shared joy and love, song and dance!

Gaura Vani was given the gift of devotional song from birth, raised with the music of the temple, taught to sing and play beautiful instruments, and dance for love and for God. He shares, “I am one of a group of children called gurukulis or those raised in the village of the guru. Even as children, we were aware that though it felt like we were partying when we played music, we were in the physical presence of God himself, who danced with us.” Gaura Vani travels the world sharing the mystical experience of kirtan and leading devotional music retreats.

Gaura Vani is a multi-disciplinary artist - fluent in music, film and visual arts. He is most known for his Mantra Music performances. Gaura Vani's events are unifying and transporting - a mix of participatory rhythm and song, story and dance. He has traveled in Africa, the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia performing both as a solo artist and with his sacred music ensembles “The Hanumen” and “Juggernauts”.

Gaura Vani is also a co-founder of Chant4Change a mantra-music festival that takes place in Washington, DC on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. He lives in suburban DC with his wife, 3 kids and a ferret.
