Did you watch the Grammys? Krishna Das didn’t win in his category, but he did kirtan the krap out of that Grammy stage in the pre-telecast performance with host David Alan Grier, who kindly introduced KD as “yoga’s rockstar” a “worldwide icon” and “the best selling chant artist of all time” with over 300,000 records sold. You can watch the nearly 6 minute rendition of “Narayana/For Your Love,” a chant that’s actually not on the album he was nominated for in the New Age category, but a fun one nonetheless, below.
And the 2013 Grammy for best New Age album went to…Omar Akram. Congrats Omar. And congrats to KD. Or as one of his fans on facebook put it “Kd you have already got the biggest award by God… To express god in yourself… God has already honoured u ( Neem Karoli baba)… Grammy’s r just the hangover…..” Well, all right then. Hallelujah.

And for fun here are The Yardbirds singing “For Your Love.”
