Krishna Das is a world-renowned spiritual teacher and chant master. He began chanting in the early 1970's, after following Ram Dass to India to meet his Guru Neem Karoli Baba. “I will sing for you in the West” he promised him in his own heart.
Krishna Das took the call-and-response chanting of traditional kirtan out of yoga centers and into concert halls. He has released more than a dozen well-received albums, was nominated for a Grammy in 2012, and performed at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
I've been a follower of Krishna Das for many years. I have all of his albums, and his chants have been a soulful companion in both difficult and happy times in my life. It was a great joy to meet Krishna Das in Berlin in the Summer of 2019 and sit down for an inspiring conversation.
