Friday 29th January 7 – 9.30 pm Kirtan and Cacao with Ravi Freeman, in the chapel

A transformational experience of devotional singing with songs & chants from around the world plus sound journey
The evening consists of an hour of singing, followed by a sound journey (including gong bath), and ends with more singing.
This event includes a ceremonial drink of cacao.
Ravi is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and one of the longest established Western players of the kora (West African harp). His music is the result of a lifetime exploring the edge, through world music, tribal cultures, throat singing and a journey that has taken him from India to the Amazon.
As well as over 20 CDs, international performances and workshops and the invention of the electric/stereo kora, Ravi has also worked with artists such as Nigel Kennedy, Jon Lord, Phil Manzanera, Baaba Maal, Dr John, Ronu Majumdar and Marlui Miranda.
The most recent albums are “Songs for the Golden Age” and “Two Rivers” with master flautist Adrian Freedman
As well as devotional singing events, Ravi also offers Overtone Singing and Voice Workshops
which take participants on a transformational journey of discovery into the voice
