Layering traditional kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, Krishna Das has been called yoga’s ‘rock star.’ With a remarkably soulful voice that touches the deepest chord in even the most casual listener, Krishna Das ‘ known to friends, family, and fans as simply KD ‘ has taken the call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls, becoming a worldwide icon and the best-selling western chant artist of all time. His album ‘Live Ananda’ (released January 2012) was nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Age album category.
‘The chanting just hits you and you want to be a part of it. That’s the point of this whole thing. That’s what cuts through all the ‘stuff’. You get lit up. You don’t have to know what it means.’ KRISHNA DAS
ABOUT KRISHNA DAS
In 1994, KD started leading chant at Jivamukti Yoga Center, NYC, with an ever-growing audience of yoga students that has led him to chant with people all around the world. In February 2013, Krishna Das performed at the Grammy awards in Los Angeles, CA streamed online to millions of viewers. The award-winning film ‘One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das’ has been in over 100 US cities, over 10 countries worldwide and is available on DVD everywhere.
With the release of his 15th album Trust In The Heart , October 2017 – KD returns to the roots of kirtan, a collection of prayers and chants that would feel equally at home being sung in a temple as being cranked up on a car stereo on a cross country sojourn, with melodies that recall both American rock as well as traditional Indian influences.
‘I’ve met many people who regularly turn to Krishna Das’s chanting for hope when in sorrow, a sense of belonging when feeling adrift, and for the sheer joy of recalling the power of love. I’m just like that too.’ SHARON SALZBERG
‘Krishna Das is an example of someone whose heartsongs open the channels to God.’ RAM DAS
