Set List

Sets can range anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the situation. Each chant in a kirtan set will be an extended experience, typically running at least 10 minutes, sometimes pushing twice that length. Our set lists will usually be original compositions, with a few covers thrown in from internationally known kirtan artists such as Krishna Das and David Newman.
