Kirtan is an ancient practice of call-and-response singing that creates spiritual connection and compassionate community. And to top it all off, it's fun! With Kirtan Kids, Grammy®-nominee Jai Uttal presents the first record of its kind created for families to sing, laugh, dance, and celebrate life together. Featuring five choirs of children of various ages, Kirtan Kids will delight listeners with nine chants in both Sanskrit and English and “Poppa Jai's” playful stories. Here is an invitation “to sing with our little ones, to take turns leading, and to keep our hearts and minds ever more open to the mysteries, the miracles, and the infinite love that always surrounds us.”

I gave this to my niece and her husband to share with their kids who are 5 & 7 years old. i have not yet heard back from them how they liked it.

However, I appreciate that Jai made this CD for children and their parents.

Wonderful CD. Music was catchy and information inspiring. A great way to introduce kids as well as adults to the background of some cultural traditions and folklore. Recommend it
