Event Description

     St. Clair Productions presents Krishna Das in concert at the Historic Ashland Armory, 208 Oak St., Ashland, on Tuesday, July 1, 7:30 p.m.  Tickets on sale at www.stclairevents.com, the Music Coop in downtown Ashland, Fretwell Music in the Ashland Street Cinema Shopping Center, and Aquarius Books, at 528 NE E St. in Grants Pass.  Tickets cost $35 in advance and $40 at the door.


            Krishna Das is touring in support of his new CD Kirtan Wallah. Kirtan Wallah, brings refreshing echoes of country and folk music to the kirtan tradition. It's a new flavor for the eclectic artist, but one that makes a lot of sense. Kirtan is very much the yoga scene's folk music: a heartfelt and homespun style that unites people in song


            Hailed as yoga's "rock star," Krishna Das put sacred Sanskrit mantras on the music map. His resonant baritone voice and energizing East-meets-West take on traditional Indian devotional chanting has become the soundtrack for the growing worldwide yoga movement throughout the past two decades.


            Born Jeffrey Kagel, a baby boomer from suburban Long Island, N.Y., few artists in the kirtan (call-and-response chanting) genre have impacted the musical mainstream in quite the same way as Krishna Das. After a stint as the frontman for Soft White Underbelly (who would later change their name to Blue Öyster Cult) in the late '60s, Krishna Das traveled to India in 1970 where he became a follower of the spiritual teacher Neem Karoli Baba (Mahara-ji).


            Krishna Das earned his first career Grammy nomination in 2012 for Best New Age Album for Live Ananda. He co-founded the world music label Karuna/Triloka Records; published a collection of stories, teachings and insights in Chants Of A Lifetime: Searching For A Heart Of Gold (2011); and was the subject of the 2012 feature documentary film, One Track Heart: The Story Of Krishna Das. He also has his own SiriusXM satellite radio station, Krishna Das Yoga Radio.

In Victory for Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Court Finds That Approval of Dakota Access Pipeline Violated the Law |THE INDIGENOUS AMERICAN

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe won a significant victory today in its fight to protect the Tribe’s drinking water and ancestral lands from the Dakota Access pipeline.

Stop ignoring Arizona on public lands | AZC

Gov. Doug Ducey’s assertion that Arizonans oppose the Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument is unfounded. State polls show vast support for protecting the Grand Canyon watershed from uranium mining and preserving the threatened cultural and historical sites in the region.
