Krishna Devi is a remarkable innovator of Kirtan chanting
and singing which she calls 'Gypsie Kirtan'. She has devoted her entire life to the healing art of music, blending the traditional Sanskrit language with the influence of gypsie melodies and songs. Her first lesson in music, as a child, was with her gypsie Grandfather in Hungary, who was a great violinist. She was raised with an awareness of the heart.
Krishna is a long time devotee of the Guru Shri Brahmananda Saraswati,(of Ananda Ashram), with whom she intensely studied Sanskrit, Yoga, and Meditation. Krishna became amazed with the dynamic kirtan master, Ramesh Lahiri, who passed on to her the gift of kirtan. She has also studied classical Indian music with Acharya Roop Verma. More recently, she has studied with kirtan singer Ma Chetan Jyoti of Rishikesh India.
Krishna is the producer of 'Dance My Heart, SukhaShantih'
a compilation of various artists of Ananda Ashram, including herself. She has also produced 'DivineJoy'
in memory of Ramesh Lahiri. In 2000 she recorded her own
work called 'Still Needing You'. Currently she is working
on the release of 'Gypsie Kirtan'.
The vision of Krishna Devi is to create a world where no
one is in pain, a world of total peace and unity. A true inner balance of purity and passion within the sound of her kirtan.
