Dive into the sacred ocean of Kirtan at The Yoga Barn with harmonium master & vocalist Punnu Singh Wasu and his musicians and enjoy an unique concert of various Indian music flavours.

 

Kirtan is a form of devotional chanting whose roots go back over thousands of years to India. It is a form of Bhakti Yoga (yoga of devotion) and these ancient chants (mantras) are energetic sound formulas, which have a powerful transformative healing energy. Kirtan has the power to dig into the heart’s deepest well to touch and be touched by the Divine Presence.

 

Punnu’s musical style is a mix of East meets West – Indian Fusion. The concerts he leads often build from a slow, meditative tempo to a high paced catharsis. He has a remarkably soulful voice that touches the deepest chord in even the most casual listener and it is common for his audiences to clap their hands or stand up and dance during his concerts.

Punnu Singh Wasu is an Indian vocalist, musician, songwriter and multi instrumentalist. He was born and raised in Hyderabad into a family that has a true love for Kirtan and spirituality. He began studying harmonium and singing at the tender age of 5. At age 10, he moved on to studying the Indian Classical Music (Hindustani) while traveling with his father throughout India singing the beautiful verses of Kirtan. Later on his knowledge of mandolin and tabla became his focal point.  Nowadays he performs Kirtan, Xtatic Kirtan, Indian Fusion, Indian Classical music, Sufi, Bollywood music as well as Sound Healing around the world. He has his own Kirtan Academy and also leads music workshops in combination with yoga & meditation.
