Krishna Das Announces June Tour Dates

Watch Krishna Das perform live at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, PA

“If there’s such a thing as a rock ‘n roll star presiding over the music category of kirtan — the 500-year-old tradition of chanting Indian mantras — the honor belongs to Krishna Das.” (Flavor Pill)

Krishna Das, one of the best-selling chant artists of all time, returns to the road on June 6, 2011 in Seattle, WA following his hugely successful, sold out tour last spring with Deva Premal, which the New York Post called “some enchanted evening….”

Krishna Das has been called the “Chant Master of American Yoga” by The New York Times and “Pavarotti of Kirtan” by Yoga Journal and is notable for making yoga and chant music more accessible to Western listeners. His music layers traditional kirtan – chanting of the divine names – over popular arrangements and songs. This summer’s tour will include Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Denver as well as Harmony Festival and Wanderlust Festival, with more dates to be announced soon.

Last March, Krishna Das released his latest album Heart As Wide As The World to critical acclaim. His first studio album in more than 10 years, the album is a collaboration with David Nichtern (“Midnight at the Oasis”), who produced and played guitar. It also features musicians like Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates) on drums/percussion and world musicians Steve Gorn on bansuri flute and Benjy Wertheimer on esraj.
