Sangita Yoga is a musical offering of Naren’s soulful voice chanting sacred Indian texts, together with his original raga-based compositions that feature guest musicians on sarangi, tabla, santoor, violin and cello.
“Naren brings sacred Indian music to life with distinct authenticity and a heart warming presence that is infectious and uplifting. These songs will sink deeply into your soul.” ~James Marienthal, Silverwave Records
“Chanting gives expression to the soul’s innate yearning for the Divine. Since ancient times, kirtan has been the cornerstone of the devotional schools of Indian religion, combining the artistry and disciplines of traditional music with the transcendent power of mantra meditation. Kirtan focuses the mind and purifies the heart. Kirtan is calling out to God. Kirtan is calling in to God.” ~Swami Bhajanananda Saraswati
