KIRTINIYAS are a global kirtan collective deeply rooted in ancient traditions and at the same time strongly influenced by contemporary pop culture. They now push the boundaries of genre to combine all of their passions into one new and unique sound called “BassMantra”: Melodious electronic dance music and subsonic bass meets the call and response singing of 5000 year old Indian Sanskrit mantras, accompanied by live acoustic instruments creating a new sound that synthesizes electro, bass, world and chant. Kirtaniyas: BassMantra had their debut performance at the 2012 Festival of Colors, Utah in front of 20.000 people. They are currently working on their first BassMantra EP and have collaborated with artists such as Cheb i Sabbah, MC Yogi, Jai Uttal, Kula Shaker, DJ Drez, Hiatus and others. “Clearly the torch is being passed The Kirtaniyas, giving me hope that a whole new generation will continue to fall in love with the transformational path of Bhakti Yoga and devotional chant.
