Krishna Das westernized Indian Kirtan music. Part of the 1st Eastern Wave in the 70’s, having gone to the same Hindu Guru in India as the Beatles, Krishna Das returned to the States as he was told to by his guru, Maharaji-ji. This New York native brought back what Kirtan in the West has now become, after decades of westernizing the singing of Hindu chants with groups all over. Now rocking the western yogic world with his soulful chants via his music, KD has offered an alternative for those who can’t seem to get themselves to meditate, or has added more to their practice for those who do. Part of the yogic path, Kirtan is a way to celebrate our heart-space within community, celebrating life in a way that is able to powerfully shift us. Having had the likes of Sting sing with him, & author Ram Dass (Be Here Now) present workshops with him, Krishna Das has a style all his own that helps cut through the mental chatter & bring it all back to you and the present & our breath – to sing.
