Who are The Hanumen?
Highly trained in the sacred music of India yet rooted in American blues, the Hanumen perform an original mix of song and story and call-and-response chant in English and Sanskrit.
What is Mantra Music?
Mantra Music is a reincarnation of the ancient Indian practice of Kirtan: call-and-response group chanting, practiced for millennia by the people of South Asia.
Today, this music offers a fresh perspective on holistic entertainment as participants both hear the music as an audience and help to create it responding with their own voices.
