Glimpses from our Community Kirtans across the country
Blessings! In San Francisco the Community Kirtan hosts began having hot food each week. Now, the community has begun to bring food items as well and it has grown. If someone is hungry there is food available to ground before the practice or it can be had afterward as blessed prasad. May you continue to warm hearts and bellies SF!
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.

MANTRA OUTREACH TOUR
Call and Response is PROUD to have sponsored this tour
The annual community 12 hour chant fest in Burlington, VT raised funds for Nandi Animal Rescue and Call and Response Foundation’s prison program. Chants were led by community leaders, a potluck meal was served throughout the day and an all volunteer crew ran sound, cleaned up and made it happen! Thank you to all!!
“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 ~
