Universal Kirtan – April Edition

Greetings all — Spring is in the air, and what better time to gather again for beautiful music, chanting, zikr, poetry, friendship and giving! Please join us this Saturday April 5th for Universal Kirtan.

This month we’re raising money for Plan Canada’s “Spread the Net” campaign. Each $10 we raise buys a insect-proof bed net for 2 to 5 people, which has proven to dramatically reduce malaria in African countries. Check out their page at https://plancanada.ca/spreadthenet

We’re welcoming back Greg Valou (on bass and things percussive, and voice this time!) and Ingrid Cheung (flute and bass flute). Maybe they’ll bring a breeze of faraway places, having just returned from their Asian holidays. Reuben Prensky and Nenad Jankovic will be anchoring the rhythm on tabla and other percussion, Zoey Wren will help on vocals, and Chloe and I do our ‘usual’ thing! And of course, all the voices and dancers who are all part of it!

Cost: $15 to $20 for this month’s charity please, $10 or less for those with truly limited incomes.


The Caravan of the Heart is the Vancouver centre of the Sufi Order International. The goal of the Caravan is to promote love, harmony, and beauty using the teachings of Sufism and Hazrat Inayat Khan.

We have weekly classes on Sufism, monthly dedications to peace (kirtan/zikr), and monthly Dances of Universal Peace. Please explore our website and contact us if you have any questions. We would love to see you at one of our gatherings.

Shanti, Shalom, Peace
