Join Chant Artist David Newman (DurgaDas) and his wife Mira for a joyful and moving evening of chant (Kirtan). Kirtan is a transformational and joyful yoga mantra practice, using the power of sound and devotion to uplift the mind and open the heart.

David Newman (Durga Das) and Mira are widely recognized Chant Artists who travel throughout the world spreading love, and uplifting others through Kirtan, sacred song and the devotional aspects of the Yoga path known as Bhakti Yoga. Their music embodies a devotional mysticism, distinctive musicality, poetic intimacy, and a joyous, often ecstatic quality. David's sublime melodies and soothing voice combined with Mira's angelic vocals and lively grooves create an atmosphere for healing, joy, and openness of heart.

David has released nine CDs including: Soul Freedom, Lotus Feet, Leap of Grace: The Hanuman Chalisa, Into the Bliss, Love Peace Chant, To Be Home, Stars, ReBliss, and Travel Well. In 2006, Mira released her beautiful debut album entitled A Living Prayer. David is also the founder of Yoga On Main in Philadelphia, and the author of Merging with Grace. Mira and David are also the founders of the Stay Strong Project.
