I went up to Squaw Valley this weekend to see Krishna Das perform at Wanderlust California. If you've never heard or experienced kirtan performed by Krishna Das, it's incredibly opening, and I highly encourage you to check out this type of devotional singing. Kirtan is a call-and-response chanting tradition from India and not only opens you up to seeing your inner self, but also forms deeper bonds with the people around you.
Here's a video of Krishna Das singing the Sweet Gates of Nectar with a beautiful explanation about the role of Hanuman, a Hindu monkey god.
