Built on ancient traditions from around the world Kirtan is a rich style of community meditation based on music and chanting. Band leader Kopo pulls many of his lyrics directly from the original Sanskrit. These ancient chants get a pop spin and catchy treatment. Kopo has been a figure in the Kirtan community for many years now. He’s gained a masterful sense of the energy in the room by leading Kirtan chants throughout his life. “Kirtan is all about the energy in the room,” say Kopo. “The audience feels our energy and we feel theirs. Using that to build swells and lulls is the heart of Kirtan.”
In 2017 Kopo began recording his album. The album takes that special energy from the stage to the studio.Always progressing in his work, Kopo has added a big sound to what is often a smaller more intimate style. “I had a lot of people asking for an album with me and my harp, but when I considered this project it was just too big and magical to be contained to that more traditional sound.” After almost a year he has created an album that is unique in its sound, energy, and message.
