Trust In The Heart by Krishna Das
The way I sing, I try to let the mantra do the work. I simply pay attention to the prayer and repeat it with as much of my being as I can. I don’t try to manipulate emotions, I don’t try to manufacture any kind of feeling at all, it naturally arises. My understanding is that these mantras, these names, come from within us, they come from that place within that is deeper than the mind, deeper than thoughts, deeper than emotions. So, by turning our attention in that direction toward our soul, we move deeply into our true nature.”
In “Trust in the Heart,” Krishna Das, who produced this entirely crowd-fund album along with longtime friend Jay Messina, has woven together what is perhaps his most stripped-down, elegantly uncompromising collection of recordings. The carefully crafted simplicity of its delivery is powerful. On this album, all music was recorded in a live studio setting with KD’s leading vocals accompanied by all musicians at once.
Krishna Das returns to the roots of kirtan with a collection of prayers and chants that would feel equally at home being sung in a temple as being cranked up on a car stereo!
