An uplifting documentary exploring the new music and social phenomenon of chanting.

Film explores new music genres and the social phenomenon of chanting, by sharing the stories of people who find healing and a sense of inner peace by singing mantras together with others just like them. It is a film about spirituality rather than religion, about people reconnecting with their true selves and with others. Through the protagonists’ stories about their connection to the music, we meet the musicians who have inspired them and brought them together. Through these encounters, we will discover how Deva Premal & Miten, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, Lama Gyurme, Jai Uttal, MC Yogi and others came to this music themselves and to the practice of “Kirtan”, and how, over the years, it transformed their lives.
