Music and Mantra: Community Kirtan

Charlie Braun Returns,
as Spring Approaches

Friday, March 8, 7:00 PM

Let’s celebrate the promise of Spring with the return of “Music & Mantra: Kirtan with Charlie Braun,”at the Unitarian Universalist Society: East (UUS:E). Charlie’s unique energy, leadership, and style is easy to follow and full of joy. His kirtan style is a fusion of melodic folk-rock that wanders into reggae, blues, and other musical forays, but it still stays true to the heart-opening power of Sanskrit mantras.

Joined by vocalist Brie Sullivan and percussionist Charlie Shew, Charlie will again guide the group in the call-and-response singing of mantras, co-creating a sacred musical atmosphere that is uplifting, comforting and absolutely joyful. Sing, sit, dance or sway, or simply close your eyes and drink it all in–no matter what, join in the joy and just plain FUN of kirtan with Charlie and his friends.
