Krishna Das

World-renowned spiritual teacher and chant artist

In 1994, Krishna Das started leading chant at Jivamukti Yoga Center, NYC. Over the years, he continued chanting, developing his signature style, fusing traditional kirtan of the East with Western harmonic and rhythmic sensibilities. The audiences have been ever growing. 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 been called yoga’s “rock star.”  He has taken the call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls, becoming a worldwide icon and the best-selling Western chant artist of all time.

KD now travels the world sharing his kirtan practice and wonderful stories of his life, of Maharaj-ji, of his life on the Path, and discusses bringing chanting into our lives through retreats and workshops.

KD has released 14 well received albums, including Live Ananda (released January 2012) that was nominated for a Grammy® in the Best New Age album category.

In February 2013, Krishna Das performed at the Grammy awards in Los Angeles, California, and was streamed online to millions of viewers. The award-winning film One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das has been in over 100 US cities, over 10 countries worldwide, and is available on DVD everywhere.

In 2014 the Kirtan Wallah Foundation was formed. This 501(c)3 is dedicated to spreading the teachings of KD’s guru and spiritual teacher, Neem Karoli Baba, lovingly called Maharaj-ji, his teachings can be summed up by his saying:

‘Love Everyone. Serve Everyone. Remember God.”
