Where Is Western Kirtan Headed? Conversations With Kirtan Leaders, Part 3.
This podcast is the third and last of the series about where Western kirtan is headed, and features the second part of my conversation with Jai Uttal & Ben Leinbach that began in Part 2. We’ll also talk with Nina Rao, and she’ll tell us her view of the current kirtan scene, what happened with SiriusXM’s Krishna Das channel & how KD is doing on his sabbatical.
On the listener survey several of you said the conversations with these various artists have gotten you thinking about the issues that have come up. If that impacts the choices you make around buying their music, I’m glad — that was the point of doing them. My hope is that these podcasts have opened up the conversation.
Next up is a Fresh Tracks set! Until then my friends — Namaste.
