Kirtan is the call and response singing of devotional music. It is an integral aspect of Bhakti yoga, the yoga of love and devotion. Kirtan invokes the transformational power of sound vibration to still the mind and awaken the heart center. It is uplifting, and healing. It unites people of all faiths and backgrounds into a unified field of oneness through which we can all experience the love and joy of our inner-most beings.
As a devotional kirtan artist and singer/songwriter, Darren has had a rich and eclectic musical career including over 30 original songs featured in film and television. With a deep commitment to the awakening of our true-selves through the power of sound, he is now devoted to sharing his unique blend of original pop/folk inspired melodies and sacred chants with as many people as possible around the world through kirtan concerts and Bhakti inspired workshops.
Darren discovered the path of Bhakti Yoga and kirtan while attending Bhakti Yoga classes in Santa Monica. The sacred chants stilled his mind, opened his heart, and led him to a profound knowing that his journey as a musical artist would be forever changed. Soon thereafter, Darren began combing his own songwriting with ancient Sanskirt chants. He has been riding the Bhakti wave of love and devotion ever since. Darren offers intimate, acoustic kirtans as well as full band kirtans with The Love Tribe Kirtan Band.
