Nina Rao // Kripa Join the Soul Land Music Series
April 2 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDTFree
This concert will stream live on this page on Friday, April 2nd at 5pm PST / 8pm EST.
Nina Rao learned traditional chants (bhajans) from her grandfather in a village in south India when she nine years old. The chants quietly stayed with her until she rediscovered chanting with Krishna Das in New York in 1996. For many years Nina has been Krishna Das’ business manager and accompanies him musically as well. In addition to several record releases, Nina regularly leads kirtan, workshops, and retreats in her hometown of Brooklyn, New York and beyond.
Kripa is a Kirtan (devotional music) group that formed out of the love of Ram Dass, Neem Karoli Baba, Siddhi Ma, and Hanuman and inspired by their central teachings of “Love, Service, Remembrance, and Truth.” As former caregivers of Ram Dass, they are deeply committed to the wide accessibility of Kirtan and Bhakti Yoga, working to lower the barriers of access to contemplative and devotional practices through affordable, free, and donation-based offerings and prison outreach.
