Fresh Tracks 30
30 Fresh Tracks sets — that’s some kind of milestone! I love introducing new artists and new offerings from our favorite artists so these sets are special to me — #30 is no exception. The CDs featured in this show had so many great tracks it was really hard to make these choices, but the standouts were newcomers Joss Jaffe — his CD ‘Dub Mantra Sangha’ is really remarkable — and Corvallis homie Johanna Beekman’s incredibly beautiful first kirtan CD. David Newman has a sweet acoustic ukulele offering that brought back memories of Shyam Das, Brenda McMorrow has a beautiful chant in Spanish, there are also new ones from Jaya Lakshmi & Ananda, Deva Premal & Miten, Clair Oaks & the Kirtan Rabbi.
You’ve probably heard me speak of the New World Kirtan Band in the podcast. If you’re curious about our band, please check out the new YouTube page — details about the recordings are in this week’s podcast.
Enjoy the set my friends! Namaste.
