ChantLanta’s 11th annual Sacred Music Festival will provide a full weekend of music, chanting and performance with national and local favorites March 13, 14 and 15.

Flying Mystics and Narayani will kick off the music on Friday night. Saturday’s lineup features Ian Boccio leading a Sea of Oms experience, kirtan with Douglas Johnson, a 12-person sound bath led by practitioners from the International Sound Therapy Association and more kirtan with Flavia Krishna and Gershone.

Billboard-charting singer-songwriter John Stringer headlines with a full band behind him for the Saturday evening concert. Opening for Stringer will be Shonali Banerjee, and Ian Boccio and the Spirit Messengers will close out the evening.

Award-winning singer-songwriter Bob Sima will perform on Sunday afternoon along with Phil McWilliams, and Native American elder Tom Blue Wolf will lead a chanting and storytelling journey. An all-star jam session will conclude the festival.

“There is so much incredible, deep, beautiful music happening in and around Atlanta all the time,” says creative director Ian Boccio. “ChantLanta hopes to provide an opportunity for folks to discover some of the fantastic offerings in our city.”

All music on the Sanctuary Stage is free to attend throughout the weekend.

ChantLanta’s 2020 charity partner is The Learning Tea, an organization that helps lift at-risk young women in Darjeeling, India, out of poverty by providing college educations that transform lives and communities.

ChantLanta will take place at The Church at Ponce & Highland, 1085 Ponce de Leon Avenue NE, Atlanta. For more info, visit or
