Daniel Overberger’s Dharma Gypsys is the unlikely, inevitable result of two lifetimes crossing. After years of playing guitar, touring Europe with death rock bands and producing songs for film and television, Daniel wound up ditching it all to go to India, study yoga, perform kirtan and become a yoga teacher. As he got deeper into kirtan and chanting, one question kept coming up: “Where are the guitar solos?”
Dharma Gypsys was a labor of love and inspiration born from Daniel’s vision of joining kirtan and rock music, like some kind of Shiva Frankenstein. It began to show signs of life when he met singer Katrina Chester at one of his yoga classes. From that point on, the Dharma Gypsys was an unstoppable force.
