The Call & Response Foundation is devoted to serving and expanding the mantra music community. Our mission is to share the experience of chanting with one million people by 2020. We are accomplishing our mission by supporting the community of chant artists, by offering research and resources supporting the healing power of chant, and by facilitating events to benefit varied populations including incarcerated individuals and veterans as well as those in recovery. We need your support to continue these valuable programs.
“Every single repetition of the Name carries a magnetism, power, and energy that will bring fruit sometime or another. Do the practice even if your heart is not in it. These practices are our only tool we have in this life, to wake up at all.” ~ Krishna Das ~
We Bring Inspiring Chanting to You
From the Hanumen to Community Kirtan to albums you love to play on auto-repeat! We are behind over 200 events annually from Yellowknife Canada to Portland Maine.
University Sacred Sounds
We reached over 10,000 students in the past years through our innovative Sacred Sounds program. The project depends on the volunteer efforts of talented graduates from Rutgers University who are now mentoring hosts at six other schools. We need your help to keep these events free for students!
Our Prison Program
Our partnering artists offer the practice of mantra chanting regularly in prisons around the country. They volunteer their time and you can help cover their gas.
