Swan Kirtan, Ashok NalamalapuA NEW Kirtan Experience for Valentine’s Day!

Friday, February 14, 7:00 PM

On February 14, we will welcome the internationally acclaimed Swan Kirtan to Unitarian Universalist Society: East. The group draws from global musical traditions, offering a universal message of love, devotion, and unity. Ashok Nalamalapu leads multifaith devotional chants, singing in the traditional Indian Raga style and playing the harmonium. Ashok was born in India and has been a devotee since his childhood.

He has led festivals from California to Maryland to Maine and has led kirtan for colleges, temples and other centers throughout India, the US, and Spain. We are so fortunate to host Swan Kirtan to kick off our 2020 Kirtan season, to celebrate our shared love for the earth and all life!

All are welcome. While a $15 donation is requested at the door, no one is ever turned away. Chair seating is provided. Bring your own floor cushions if you want to sit on the floor in the front.
