ChantLanta Scales Down but with Big Sound
ChantLanta started in 2010 as an event featuring yoga, kirtan music, open chant and charitable fundraising. The event grew over the years into a weekend-long festival, raising money for local and international charities, including refugees and urban farmers.
ChantLanta’s newsletter states that this is the only year the event will be scaled to one night, explaining that the organizers are already planning for ChantLanta’s 10th anniversary in 2019.
The 2018 event will feature six bands performing in pairs: One Voice with Shonali, Blue Spirit Wheel with Kalidas, and Krishna & Gershone with Adi Shakti Tribe.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and music starts at 6:30 p.m. in the main sanctuary of Church at Ponce and Highland, 1085 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Atlanta 30306. The kid-friendly event is free and open to the public; RSVP on the event’s Facebook page. As of February, nearly 200 people registered as going and more than 700 had indicated interest.
