H.G. BADA-HARIDAS PRABHU & H.G. KOSARUPA

Known for his inspiring and soulful chants, Bada Haridas has studied and performed devotional music and Kirtan since 1975. Bada Haridas artistically weaves together his many influences, creating unique music for his kirtan chants. As a sincere practitioner of bhakti yoga, there is a depth to his music and a quality of his singing that is both inspiring and healing.

Living as a monk in the Los Angeles ashram, accepting vows of austerity and sense control, his musician life and its trappings quickly became a past life, devoid of maya’s glitter. In its place, Kirtan, the devotional singing of Krishna’s names, became his music and his personal connection to the divine. Learning the Sanskrit and Bengali songs and prayers, studying the ancient melodies and ragas, and teaching himself eastern instruments to accompany kirtan, Bada Haridas became a sought after kirtan leader and teacher.
