Dave Stringer - Mantra movie showing, Q&A and live kirtan!

Dave Stringer is back at Maitri Studio, this time with special guest Rónán O' Snodaigh of Kíla!

Join us for a film screening followed by live kirtan for a beautiful, heart-uplifting, evening out.

Film screening: Mantra - Sounds into Silence

This is a feature-length documentary that explores the musical and social phenomenon of chant and response meditation. With music and Performances from Deva Premal & Miten with Manose, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, Jai Uttal, MC Yogi, Dave Stringer, and many more.

Join us to watch this together at 7pm followed by a short Q&A with Dave and hopefully the director too.

Kirtan with Dave and special guest Rónán Ó Snodaigh

This will start at 8.30pm (or thereabouts) after the film running to 10pm or so. 

Kirtan is one of the world’s most venerable forms of consciousness-altering music, eliciting a sense of unity, well-being and timelessness. The mantras still the mind, and the music frees the heart. Exuberant, poignant and transcendent, modern Kirtan marries the mysticism of traditional East Indian instruments with the devotional intensity of American gospel and the potent energy of a rock band. 

Sanskrit is the mother tongue of many modern languages, and a kind of periodic table of elemental sound-meaning. Kirtan mantras are sung in call-and-response form, with the entire audience participating, clapping and dancing as the rhythms build and accelerate. Ecstasy is both the process and the product.


Film screening & kirtan early bird online £30 (on door £35)

Kirtan only £20

Book both of these online here, choosing from the drop-down menu.
