Chaparral Kirtan Band:

Chaparral Kirtan Band is a group of Arizona-based musicians blending the traditions of Kirtan and American Folk music.  Seasoned by their shared home in the southwest, Chaparral Kirtan Band, is developing an acoustic style and devotional experience that is rooted in the wide desert and open sky of Tucson. The group is led by Gabrielle Pietrangelo, who shares her beautiful voice and original heart-opening music, with Matt Moon and Will Duncan on tabla & percussion, Bradford Trojan on guitar, Hadji Banjovi on bowed-banjo and Kasey Ackerley on harmonium.  The group is working on their debut CD which will be released in December of 2018. If you are a seasoned Bhakti yoga practitioner or new to call and response chanting Chaparral Kirtan Band offers a spirited and devotional opportunity to come together and sing!
