Krishna Das has been called yoga’s “rock star,” layering traditional kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation. With a remarkably soulful voice KD has taken the call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls, becoming the best-selling western chant artist of all time.
Krishna Das has released 14 well received albums, including Live Ananda (released January 2012) that was nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Age album category & his most recent release Kirtan Wallah.
In 2014 the Kirtan Wallah Foundation was formed. This 501c3 is dedicated to spreading the teachings of KD’s guru and spiritual teacher, Neem Karoli Baba, Lovingly called Maharjji, his teachings can be summed up by his saying:
‘Love Everyone. Serve Everyone. Remember God’
Krishna Das now travels the world sharing his kirtan practice and wonderful stories of his life on the spiritual path, and discusses bringing chanting into our lives through retreats and workshops.
