Layering traditional kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, Krishna Das has been called yoga’s “rock star.” With a remarkably soulful 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 the call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls, to become a worldwide icon and the best-selling western chant artist of all time. His album Live Ananda (2012) was nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Age album category.
As part of his West Coast Tour, Krishna Das performs live on The Great Hall stage.
