The Mystical Kirtan of Mirabai Moon
Mystical Kirtan with Mirabai Moon offers a passionate embrace of the Divine Essence right here, right now... in your embodied, human form, just as you are.
Singer/songwriter Mirabai Moon’s immensely versatile and powerfully expressive voice has been compared to Joni Mitchell, Ani DiFranco and even mantra artist Deva Premal. Her music takes listeners on a journey, flowing effortlessly from ethereal dreaminess to soulful blues and jazz.
She honed her craft studying vocal improvisation with Jazz legend Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon of Voicestra. After nearly two decades of songwriting and three original albums, she fell in love with the practice of Kirtan. In 2010, Mirabai devoted herself as a Bhakta, singing sacred chants in Sanskrit, sharing her profound love of the Divine with others through call and response devotional chanting.
Mirabai’s life changing experiences with kirtan and mantra practice led her to explore other sound healing modalities. She now uses crystal singing bowls, chimes and gongs with groups and individual clients for healing and transformation work. Mirabai tours across North America as well as internationally, sharing chant music and sound healing in yoga studios, healing centers, and festivals. Her offerings guide participants into experiences of profound healing and embodiment of the Divine Essence within human form.
