Heart As Wide As The World
Heart As Wide As The World by Krishna Das offers kirtan with Sanskrit mantras and yoga music.
Called the 'Chant Master of American Yoga' by the New York Times, Krishna Das released Heart As Wide As The World, his first studio album in ten years, on March 2, 2010.
Heart As Wide As The World is a collaboration with David Nichtern (Midnight at the Oasis) who produced and played guitar. It features musicians Jerry Marotta (Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel) on drums, percussion and world musicians Steve Gorn on bansuri flute and Benjy Wertheimer on esraj, amongst an array of other instruments.
Krishna Das is the best-selling chant artist of all time, with over 300,000 records sold. Notable for making yoga and chant music more accessible to Western listeners, his music layers traditional kirtan – chanting the divine names – over popular arrangements and songs. Krishna Das has toured extensively through North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and South America, and counts Madonna and Mike D of the Beastie Boys amongst his fans.
Krishna Das has been recording his popular and much-loved albums of kirtan since 1996. Having made numerous pilgrimages to India throughout his career while meeting teachers of many spiritual traditions, Krishna Das follows the path of Bhakti yoga – the yoga of devotion – and brings a lifetime of spirituality into his music. Over the years, his collaborators in the studio have included Rick Rubin on Door of Faith, Sting on Pilgrim Heart and Mike D in a 50-person kirtan choir on Breath of the Heart, also produced by Rubin.
Krishna Das will be touring in spring 2010 with Deva Premal & Miten, dubbed 'The Johnny and June Carter Cash of chant' by Yoga Journal. Together they are creating an extraordinary series of concerts across the US, highlighting the newfound popularity of kirtan and mantra chanting. These musicians, who have enjoyed a worldwide grass-roots success the past decade, are each celebrating the release of new albums with their first co-headlined tour.
With his new CD release of Heart As Wide As The World, Krishna Das did co-headlining a tour in spring 2010 with Deva Premal & Miten.
