Kirtan ("to repeat") is a devotional chanting of God's holy names. It is recommended by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu as the yuga dharma of Kali Yuga ("duty of this age").
All the files on this page are live recordings of various devotees leading kirtan. Some are SoulConnection members, some are friends of SoulConnection. In any case, please take a listen to the melodious sounds of the kirtan! Be sure to also check out more of the recorded kirtans to your right!

In December 2010, SoulConnection, along with other devotees, went to India with HH Romapada Swami. There, we visited Jagannath Puri, the holy place where Sri Jagannath resides.
Kirtan is generally performed with three instruments: a mridanga, a harmonium, and a pair of kartalas. The mridanga and kartalas keep the rhythm of the kirtan, while the harmonium keeps the melody.
