KICKSTARTER UPDATE #5: A message from Janaki about the new album

By May 18, 2017 Blog, Kickstarter 2017
We are counting down the days to the end of our New Album Pre-Sale campaign!
There are 11 days left ….
If you haven’t already done so, have a look at the details and rewards you can choose or simply just buy the new music in advance!
Here is a special treat for you. Krishna Das’ daughter Janaki,  joined her father on stage while on Maui recently to sing Mere Gurudev. Watch the video for their beautiful duet.
A note from Janaki~
“I am so happy to be singing with my Dad on his new Hare Krishna. I literally haven’t stopped swimming in this melody since I first heard it.  The album has so many amazing, moving chants on it, but the River Of Mahamantra might be my favorite – not because I sing on it! – but because it’s just crazy beautiful.
It always feels special when I sit down to sing with my Dad…at a kirtan, in the studio, at home… This recording was no exception!  I can’t wait for you to hear it!”
Within the first 40 hours of this campaign we met our funding goal. This means we will be able to get the new album out to you! Now we have 20 days to go. Let your friends about this PRE-SALE of the new album, so that we can continue to share in the chanting!
Some of you have asked if you can back this project more than once…. the answer is: YES! Just make your next pledges as “guest” pledges, if you choose to back more than once.

ABOUT OUR PROJECT: 

We are very excited to launch Krishna Das’ second funding campaign NEW MUSIC FROM THE HEART SPACE via Kickstarter for a new studio recording under the Krishna Das Music label!
 
For all of you who supported Kirtan Wallah, our last album 4 years ago, your gracious generosity and love blew us away. It not only allowed us to make our first self-released album, without the control of a record label, it supported and inspired us to start working on this new album for all of you.
 
We have already begun recording these new (and some familiar) melodies at the favorite Avatar Studios in New York City. Now it’s time to get them mixed, mastered, album artwork created, and manufactured to share with you!
 
 
This album, engineered and mixed by Jay Messina and co-produced with KD, will be released by Krishna Das Music label in the late fall of 2017.
 
This time KD sat with all musicians in the room together (rather than with overdubs) except for a the choir – so it has a really nice live feeling.
 
Without giving too much away, these new chants are coming alive as you read this.
 
In order to make the offering as best as we can there are many costs involved to do this and that’s why we are here. This campaign on Kickstarter is in lieu of taking money from a record company. The funds we raise will go directly toward professional engineers,, our awesome musicians, mastering fees, artwork & design, CD manufacturing costs, and legal/production/management staff. Your partnership supports this entire process and will bring the album to life!
 
This project will run till May 29, Memorial Day. We would also love to have your support in this project by simply sharing this newsletter with your friends and helping to spread the word in your communities!

Stay tuned for updates from the musicians and sneak peeks at the songs. Participate however it feels right and let’s make music together!
