Just like it sounds, this REMIX is a collection of KSR chants ‘Remixed’ by a handful of talented electronic music producers/DJ’s, including Srikalogy (Srikala Roach), Duke Mushroom, DJ Hip Sockit (Aaron Brando) & Nur Habib (Nur Tiven), tm.pOMpey (otherwise known as our amazing drummer Terrence Pompey), theotone (Tony Jarvis) and our very own Todd Keller. This album is a uniquely modern blend of soul-stirring vocals, 3 part harmony and guitar-driven funk combined with Sanskrit mantras and original music set to a backdrop of danceable electronic grooves. Spanning multiple genres, “Remix” is a refreshing offering from a group truly making its mark in the kirtan/world music scene.
“What a JOY to hear the beautiful melodies and sweet harmonies of Kirtan Soul Revival on “Remix” envisioned to shine in a new and exciting way. Great music coupled with great grooves brings an absolutely energizing and inspiring listening experience. You won’t be able to sit still, guaranteed!” – David Newman aka Durga Das

And we are blessed to be backing up some of our very favorite musicians (and humans!) on both the Main stage and Hanuman stage.

KSR featured on Lost In Sound Blog: We were also honored to be included in this piece by the lovely Denise Porter Kemp about the Vermont Wanderlust Festival. Denise shared her experience in a class we accompanied: “At the end of one Energy Medicine Yoga class I took with Lauren Walker, Walker’s cousin’s funky kirtan band Kirtan Soul Revival out of Brooklyn serenaded us with Sea of Love, and I honestly felt the waves of the breeze, of their voices, of the tent softly flapping around us like waves on the sea as I floated in and out of waking consciousness, yet continuously conscious. It was so, so beautiful. There could be more of this, too.”
We were so excited and honored to be invited to share the KSR love this summer at the amazing Wanderlust Festival in Stratton, VT! We collaborated with lovely kirtan wallah Adam Bauer at the Speakeasy on June 21 from 5-7 for an evening of Bhakti love. Participants had a chance to taste the nectar of the Bhakti path, feel how it integrates our spiritual and material sides into a harmonious whole, and experience how easy and nourishing it can be to bring a deeper devotional current into their own daily yoga practice. The evening included a dharma talk and call and response chanting with live band. Presented in Collaboration with The Call and Response Foundation.
Wanderlust is a four-day adventure of yoga, music, nature and food that celebrates mindful living and community. To find out more about the Wanderlust experience, take a peek at this beautiful highlights
