Raw, adjective: 7. brutally or grossly frank: a raw portrayal of human passions.
Come sing with us this Saturday night at Urban Flow.
Jai Uttal will be rocking it out, along with Ben Leinbach and Prajna Vieira. (You hear these fab musicians on most of my playlists.) If you dig music and would like to delve a little more deeply into chanting, this one's for you. We call it a kirtan, which is just a fancy way of saying: rad folks singing and breathing to lift up the divine — whatever that means to them.
In bhakti yoga, the chant is as much a part of the vinyasa as any Chaturanga or Up Dog. If you've never experienced it, kirtan singing is a really earthy, embodied, ethereal way to get back into your breath, into your body, and out of your head. And, well, honestly — to just wail the shit out of some really great melodies whilst in excellent company.
So just come already, ok?
