Adhivasa-kirtana - The opening songs of a festival (2005-2006)Adhivasa-kirtanas mark the opening of a festival, occuring anywhere from a few days up to a month before the actual event. As festivals come in two flavors, the ananda-utsavas or festivals of joy, and the viraha-utsavas or festivals of separation, so there are distinct songs. This is the first half of the series, featuring almost five hours of kirtan.
