Kirtan Shakti Project is a creative collaboration aimed at empowering and educating underprivileged girls in India. Launched in 2014, under the nonprofit Kulimela Association, the project was initiated by a tightknit group of friends. Together they recruited a team of international kirtan singers and crowdfunded an album to raise funds for Food For Life Vrindavan. The campaign took off with supporters quick to lend support and by Summer the first album went into production: Bhakti Without Borders. Produced by Dave Stringer, and featuring singers and musicians from around the world, the record is both musical allegory and mechanism for change. Truly a by-the-people-for-the-people brand, Kirtan Shakti Project hopes to support charity organizations through conscious music for years to come.
