Vijay Krsna + Malini (Kirtaniyas)
California based Kirtaniyas are a global collective of energetic, multitalented artists. These twenty-somethings grew up in a Vedic culture of song, dance, philosophy and devotion between ashrams and temples both in India and the western world.
Besides the largely traditional approach to their acoustic sets, Kirtaniyas now push the boundaries of genre to combine all of their passions into one new and unique sound. Melodious dance orientated “Worldbeat” music and subsonic bass meets the call and response singing of ancient Sanskrit mantras, accompanied by live acoustic instruments. This is where the boundaries between performers and audience become blurred, everybody is united in one voice and everybody becomes the band.
