C.C. White has shared her soulful sacred energy and powerful voice for many years, singing kirtan and chanting with Jai Uttal, Shyamdas, Dave Stringer, Gaura Vani and As Kindred Spirits, and other brilliant kirtan performers. An exciting and moving performer of kirtans in her own right, she continues to inspire and lift audiences with her joyous and uplifting style of “soul kirtan,” an exciting blend of soul, kirtan, gospel, and blues.
Her distinct SoulKirtan performances have won her wide recognition as “The Queen of Soul Kirtan,” embodied in one exotic, soulful being. Her CD This Is Soul Kirtan! features a thrilling mixture of kirtan, Old School Soul, Southern blues, gospel, R&B, jazz, and a little bit of Latin Flair.
