Lotus Feet: A Kirtan Revolution was born out of a vision to express the healing power of Indian devotional chanting, known as Kirtan, in a contemporary western musical context. The goal was to both respect the chanting tradition while staying true to the sensibilities of the western singer songwriter idiom.On Lotus Feet, ancient chants are rich with catchy hooks, evocative melodies, and passionate chord changes. Pop song structures are laced with Sanskrit mantras accented by English lyrics. Acoustic guitars are propelled by world rhythms, hip hop loops, dance grooves and ambient textures. The mantras are the message and the music the messenger. The chants embody a universal language of peace and love while the musical presentation strikes a familiar chord in the western ear and psyche.Lotus Feet: A Kirtan Revolution offers a gift from the heart of the east on the wings of the west straight to you, the listener, as cosmic sonic nourishment for the Body and Soul.
Love, Peace, Chant is emotionally evocative with intimate sacred songs and hypnotic trance jams. “Shiva Om” settles into the warmth of meditative reflection with the ancient Indian sounds of the tabla and sarod, while “Love, Peace and Freedom” emanates with an exalted mélange of deep earthy rhythms and elevating lyrics. “Mata Bhavani” showcases David’s unique ability to blend the classic sounds of the acoustic guitar with traditional Indian instruments and Sanskrit mantra lyrics.
