Vijay Krsna is a kirtan singer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and cultural adventurer from the UK. Leading the KIRTANIYAS, Vijay Krsna composes phenomenal hybrids of traditional Bengali, Braj and Sanskrit kīrtan and māntras with cross-cultural musical influences, subsonic bass and World-beat music.
Internationally based KIRTANIYAS are a global collective of energetic, multitalented artists. These twenty-somethings grew up in a Vedic culture of song, dance, philosophy and devotion between ashrams and temples both in India and the western world.
Joined together with musically gifted Sarasvati Dasi, soulful vocalist Rasika Dasi and producer Nitai Gaur Prem (Makhana), Vijay Krsna formed KIRTANIYAS in 2009. Members including Malini Taneja, Nakula Das, Jamuna Sheth and Atul Krsna have since travelled the World to over 20 countries infusing new life to these ancient chants with youthful spirit and energy. A full KIRTANIYAS presentation features up to seven of its members.
Besides the largely traditional approach to their acoustic sets, KIRTANIYAS now push the boundaries of genre to combine all of their passions into one new and unique sound. Melodious dance orientated "Worldbeat" music and subsonic bass meets the call and response singing of ancient Sanskrit mantras, accompanied by live acoustic instruments. This is where the boundaries between performers and audience become blurred, everybody is united in one voice and everybody becomes the band.
The Hanuman Project (Patita Pavana Das)
Known for their highly accessible and deeply powerful Kirtan offerings, the Hanuman Project will sweep you up into a whirlwind of chant ecstasy and then plunge in a lake of devotional nectar.
