ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Crying of the soul

Produced by Keshavacharya and Gauravani

Keshavacharya's first album is pure traditional Kirtan. All songs are Sanskrit chant's with traditional Instruments.

Kirtan is the heart or essence of Bhakti. In one sense Kirtan is impossible to define. It defies measurement it resist categorization. Kirtan means to share to celebrate, to praise and to glorify. Kirtan forms a bridge between your outer and inner identities, expressing our desire to know and love the divine absolute. It is utter devotion towards God. The different Ragas and melodies create different moods of spiritual feelings from great joy of intimate association to deep spiritual lamentation in separation of God.

Kirtan transcends the artificial barriers imposed by the external world. It rises above skin color, age, gender, race, religion, or creed. Kirtan does not depent upon classic vocal training or musical abilities. It is sung from the heart; it is raw, joyful, primeval.

If I could give this ten stars, I would.
This CD grabbed me at first listening, and continues to hold my attention after many plays. Keshavacharya's voice carries each chant strongly, but does not dominate the backing. Every track is flowing, melodic and filled with exquisite harmonies, all steeped in the devotion of the singers and musicians. Highly recommended.

A truly outstanding first effort by this warm-voiced kirtaniya. Also wonderful to have bona fide Vaishnava songs and sentiments set to orchestrations that would not be out of place at your local yoga studio. Bravo for bridging the gap!

The haunting melodies and deep, soulful emotions in Kesavacarya das' kirtan bring me immediately to the ancient temple inside of my heard where the moods of longing and ecstasy dance together eternally at the feet of the Lord. I love his singing.
