Alist Presents: Krishna Das says
Krishna Das (born Jeff Kagel) grew up dreaming of being in a rock band. But after joining his first band in college, he found himself miserable. Fascinated by Buddhism and Hinduism, he traveled to India and began to learn kirtan, Indian devotional music, which involves call-and-response chanting. Layering traditional Hindu kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, he has been called “yoga’s rock star” and “the Pavarotti of kirtan.” His album Live Ananda (released January 2012) was nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Age album category and he is the best-selling chant artist of all time, with over 300,000 records sold.
