Recent Kirtan Videos

Here are four videos from a recent kirtan I led in Maui. They are the “closest thing to professional” videos that I own so I thought it would be good to share them with my friends.

All four chants are from the kirtan that was part of the Ram Dass public satsang on Maui.

Recorded live at the Makawao Union Church on August 25, 2013

Zach Leary – vocals and harmonium
Dana Huffman – guitar
Kit Thomas – bass
Vidu – percussion

Me, Ritchie Havens and Bhakti Fest

What do me and Ritchie Havens have in common?

Well, nothing really. He was a large African American 60s revolutionary folk singer and I’m an anglo fledgling bhakti musician. With that said, we both share passion for love and music.

And more importantly, he opened Woodstock ’69 and I am opening Bhakti Fest ’13.

It will be early and empty, but if you are there and want to start Bhakti Fest off with me and my friends, be there at 9 am on Thursday. We’ll do our best to start things off right.

With inspiration coming from this great Ritchie video when he opened up that other festival.
