Ananda Rasa


Ananda Rasa (the bliss of Divine rapture, the nectar of bliss) kirtan is led by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist David Estes who is currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area. David grew up in India, has studied music since childhood and spent several years completely immersed in the practices of kirtan, Sanskrit text chanting, meditation and seva as a resident in daily ashram life.

Ananda Rasa Kirtan is rooted in traditional Sanskrit chants sung to original raga melodies with deep roots reggae and dub rhythms and explores the mystical and ecstatic depths of kirtan in call and response chanting with the audience.
