Krishna Das in Concert
Jan 04, 2014 04:37AM
Following the studio recording of his new album, Krishna Das kicks off his tour of the United States at 7:30 p.m., on March 26, at the University of DC.
From the first heart-opening sounds of the concert, as the harmonium blends with the unmistakable voice of Krishna Das, something stirs deep within. One knows immediately—this will be a soulful evening. Layering traditional Hindu kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, Krishna Das has been called yoga's rock star.
With a remarkable 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 call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls. Audience and musicians unite to create a joyous energy of love and devotion. A worldwide icon and the best-selling chant artist of all time, KD has sold over 300,000 records. His album, "Live Ananda”, was nominated for a 2012 Grammy for Best New Age Album.
The concert will be held at the Theatre of the Arts, University of DC, 4200 Connecticut Ave., NW. Early bird tickets are available for $35 until February 26. For more information, visit BuddhaFest.org.
