What is Kirtan?

The Sanskrit word kirtan generally means glorification or praise, specifically of the Supreme Being, Krishna (God). When performed in a group setting, with musical instruments and call-and-response chanting, it is called sankirtan, or "complete kirtan."

This kind of complete kirtan is what you'll find here. We've collected sample recordings of Krishna devotees from around the world chanting the Hare Krishna mantra and other devotional songs.
