FREE Download of the 3 song EP from my side project the Dub Kirtan All Stars! Download it HERE and check out the website HERE
Some background info:
Dub Kirtan All Stars was formed by David Starfire and FreQ Nasty to fuse bass-heavy underground dance music with Yoga Kirtan, the call and response chants of Indian devotional traditions. We are a live band/DJ collective that tears down the boundaries between bleeding edge technology and ancient spiritual techniques, performer and audience, the sacred and everyday life. Don’t think, just feel the bass, dance and hear your voice ring out above it – the real All Stars are the audience – your voices complete the band.
Kirtan is the form of call and response chanting traditional to many of the south Asian spiritual traditions including Yoga, various forms of Hinduism, Buddhism and others. Mostly it’s done in the west in a very traditional format of sitar, harmonium, tamboura, tablas, mrdunga or pakawaj drums, or any combo of these. The idea is to let go of our neurotic and limited idea of who we are thru the music, much like you would at a rave dancing to dope music till the sun comes up.
