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 one million people by 2020.
We are accomplishing our mission by supporting the community of chant artists, by offering research and resources supporting the healing power of chant, and by facilitating events to benefit varied populations including incarcerated individuals and veterans as well as those in recovery.
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 or 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; chanting is a contemplative practice in the vein of meditation and yoga. It promotes community, peace and conscious living.
