NAAD: Tonight the Sound is Love

Date: Sunday, January 31st

Time: Doors at 6:00pm, Sounds at 7:00pm (More information here)

NAAD returns to Bridge & Enrich to bring you a night of auditory magic, transformative vibration and healing sound. Come immerse yourself!

NAAD plays music that calls to all the beating hearts, a sonic invitation into fully embodied prayer. Always fresh, nearly always improvised, their spontaneous explorations tickle the full spectrum of sound – from sweet whisper to soulful shout.

And Introducing Raga Mantra & Swahansa – Creative Consciousness

The evening will open with chanting and call & response by Nadaka, Gopika and Keshava.

End of Year Celebrations at BE

Can you believe there are just two weeks left in 2015? To celebrate the coming Winter Solstice and thank everyone for another fabulous year, we are honoured to host two very special Kirtans this weekend.

Winter Solstice 2015 Celebration:
MantraVani Kirtan Chanting Orchestra

Singing Devotional & Ancient Sacred Songs and Chants, Original and Contemporary Music

Date: Saturday, December 18th
Time: Doors at 7:30pm 
Tickets: $30 at the door

Feel your heart expand and spirit soar at this Festival of Light and Joy as we all Sing in Resounding Joy! A non-traditional Vancouver tradition, the MantraVani Orchestra has been playing to sold out audiences for nearly 25 years.

This annual event beautifully combines music, colour and ritual to create a highlight of the season for many and a delightful discovery for first timers. As the musicians and singers draw us deeper into a universe of song and chant, there is a warm invitation for audience participation. The music touches the emotional heart with subtlety giving fresh meaning to the ordinary and spiritual experiences of our lives.
