“One of the greatest kirtan groups today… Prema Hara makes some of the sweetest mantra music you’ll ever hear.“ —Spirit Voyage
Awaken the fullness of your heart with this dynamic duo who have dedicated their lives to their love of kirtan (mantra music) and living that joy with others. Prema Hara's mellow, meditative songs build into ecstatic rhythms, creating a jubilant celebration of the spirit. Come sing and dance, or just come and be. Kirtan, the music of the heart, is the calling of the soul; a blissful musical journey to invoke divine presence. No previous experience is necessary.
Kamaniya and Keshavacharya are kirtan gypsies, touring internationally as the sacred music duo Prema Hara. Attracted by Bhakti Yoga, the path of devotion, both have spent many years living in ashrams, searching for the divine through devotional service and singing. Seeing so many people's hearts transformed through the power of chanting sacred mantras, they were inspired to commit their lives to sharing the universal practice of kirtan with the world. Prema Hara has toured extensively throughout the USA and Europe, quickly gaining recognition as one of the West’s most prominent mantra music bands.
