Kirtan w/ Nina Rao

4.7.24—6-8 pm—-$30 advance / $35 doors

We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to host one of our favorite kirtan wallahs, Nina Rao, whose grace, elegance and pure devotion shine brightly in her chanting. 

Nina Rao learned traditional chants from her grandfather as young girl in a village in south India. The chants quietly stayed with her until she rediscovered chanting with Krishna Das in New York in 1996. In 1998 she met her guru, Sri Siddhi Ma in the foothills of the Himalayas and spent time with her regularly for 19 years. For many years Nina has been Krishna Das’ business manager and accompanies him musically as well. In 2007, she made her debut recording ‘Nina Chalisa’ on Krishna Das’ CD “Flow of Grace”; January 2013 she released her own double-album, “Antarayaami-Knower of All Hearts”; August 2018 her second album “Anubhav” was released entirely crowd-funded. Nina regularly leads kirtan, workshops, and retreats in New York and beyond, and leads workshops and courses online across many platforms She is also the founder and chairwoman of the non-profit SavingWildTigers.org which supports the conservation of wild tigers and all species in their natural habitat in India. Nina is also a hospice volunteer for VNSNY and other organizations. In addition, she hosts a podcast series on the Be Here Now Network exploring spirituality, practice, and Nature. She is currently recording mantras to Tara in the Buddhist tradition, with 21 Taras Collective. For more information visit NinaRaoChant.com.
