Kirtan could potentially reach a much larger audience with the launch of Krishna Das Yoga Radio on SiriusXM. The new satellite radio channel features kirtan artists such as Ali Akbar Khan, Deva Premal, Jai Uttal, Lama Gyurme, Pandit Jasraj, Shantala, Wah!, and, of course, Krishna Das himself.
The music and other content, which is curated by KD and his team, will play 24-hours a day.
And while “songs to open the heart” will be the focus of the channel, listeners will hear kirtan explored in other ways as well. “I hope to do interviews with chanters and teachers and we will keep adding new chants to the playlist,” Das was quoted saying in a press release.
