Dave Stringer, an accomplished composer, multi-instrumentalist and singer, has a special gift for bringing people together in ecstatic chant - his own version of "kirtan"- devotional, group singing. He's has been profiled in Time, Billboard, In Style, and Yoga Journal as a leader of the new American kirtan movement. Kirtan (pronounced keer-tahn) is a form of mantra chanting that has become popular as a participatory live music experience at hundreds of yoga studios worldwide.
Dave's sound marries the transcendent mysticism of traditional Indian instruments with the exuberant, groove-oriented sound of American gospel, jazz and funk. Dave's band includes Miles Shrewsbery, Mark Gorman, C.C. White, Sapphron Obois and Sudama Kennedy on Tablas, Bass, Voice, Soprano Sax, Guitar and Sitar, respectively
