Vijay Krsna’s upbringing was a multicultural and multi-faith banquet of arts, music and meditation, where East converged with West in a sensory explosion of musical exploration. The son of a sound engineer, Vijay Krsna grew up with the rhythms of dub, reggae, Sufi qawwali, West African music, Bollywood, and kirtan emanating from his father’s home-engineered vinyl sound system. At the age of 17, Vijay Krsna left home to begin his worldwide journey as a traveling kirtan performer. His rich ethnic and musical childhood traveled with him and over the years has grown into a vibrant, heartfelt expression of self that can only be described as the romance between urban hip-hop and a profound devotional inner world. Vijay Krsna’s creations – be they his kirtans, his Bhakti-Yoga workshops, his self-designed clothes, or his hybridized unions of enchanting, ancient mantras with electronic dance music and subsonic bass – are all marked by an unmistakable artistic flare that celebrates the beauty of the paradoxical.
