You’re invited to support an exciting grass-roots community effort to elevate chant and spiritual musicians and their music.

This fundraiser will help build a supportive infrastructure for independent chant and spiritual artists that has never existed before.
Our message is Community and Collaboration. Singing together, we transmute pain into joy, and division into unity.
The message of our music informs the method of our work together.

Ticket revenues and donations will: 
  • Help develop a new website and app that will be an unprecedented hub for chant and spiritual music, including a search function to find local Kirtan groups anywhere in the world.
    Auricle will also launch a Frequent Chanter program that will reward fans with free tickets and other benefits.
  • Highlight the experience and benefits of chanting and make the practice more accessible for everyone
  • Support independent chant artists to thrive within, instead of being exploited by the corporate digital music world
  • Create resources and structures for spiritual artists to work together

Tickets to both the live event in Los Angeles and the simultaneous livestream on YouTube include full access to a collection of exclusive video performances by Auricle artists.
