Interview with Krishna Das

krishna-das.jpgI just ran across an audio interview with Krishna Das done a few months ago by CBC Radio. I enjoy listening to his music and thought I’d share. To listen to some of Krishna Das’ music, check out the Box.net music folder in the right column. Or instead, if you want to listen to the entire Pilgrim Heart album, click here.

Here’s the introduction to the interview:

The Devotional Chant of Krishna Das

When he was growing up on Long Island, his name was Jeffrey Kagel. A trip to India and a meeting with the renowned guru Neem Karoli Baba would change the course of his life. And his name. Krishna Das, the name his guru gave him, would become famous around the world for his kirtan – devotional chant. Kirtan is an ancient spiritual path – part of the tradition of Bhakti Yoga – yoga of the heart.
So much has changed for Krishna Das since his first trip to India – but the Jewish guy from Long Island is never far from the surface. The sense of humour, for starters.
Krishna Das has been chanting on a regular basis in yoga centers all over the world. He has taught with Ram Dass and sung for many saints and yogis here and in India. Krishna Das is Mary Hynes’ guest this week on Tapestry.
