Mission Statement

One Million Chanting by 2020!

The Call & Response Foundation is a registered nonprofit devoted to serving and expanding the mantra music community. Our mission is to share the experience of chanting with 1 million people by 2020.

Description

We accomplish our mission by supporting the community of chant artists, by spreading the word about the healing power of chant, and by organizing events to reach all those who can benefit from mantra music, including incarcerated individuals and children with special needs.

Mantra music comes in many forms including kirtan, an ancient Indian practice of call and response chanting that is at the core of bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotion. Chanting has been practiced for thousands of years by diverse cultures and is now undergoing a renaissance in the west. More than just music group chanting is a contemplative practice in the vein of meditation and yoga. It promotes community, peace and conscious living.

Current work includes:

Live Events - working with artists for tours, workshops, trainings, festivals, event production

Community Service Projects include: Call and Response Behind Bars Program, bringing conscious music to prison inmates; matching musicians with programs for at-risk youth such as Street Yoga

Support for Artists - helping artists to co-create, plan, book and manage communications for live events and community service projects
