What our friends say …
“Vijay is my new favorite drummer. Sweet, joyful, funky, slamming, he’s got all the colors I like to paint with. I wanted him to tour with me, but he was already booked!”— Dave Stringer http://davestringer.com/ →
“Clearly the torch is being passed to Vijay and The Kirtaniyas, giving me hope that a whole new generation will continue to fall in love with the transformational path of Bhakti Yoga and devotional chant. I LOVE what they do and encourage any Kirtan aficionados to come experience their magic!”— Shiva Baum, Executive Producer of Krishna Das’ “Breath Of The Heart” and Triloka Records’ Head Of A&R http://www.bendermusicgroup.com →
“The Kirtaniyas are bright shining stars of the kirtan revolution. Their energy is fresh and uplifting and their music is absolutely intoxicating. They are my favourite kirtan band around!”— Govindas (Bhakti Yoga Shala) http://www.bhaktiyogashala.com/ →
“The Kirtaniyas, led by Vijay, are my favourite devotional chanters of all time.”— Sura http://www.templebhajanband.com →
The Kirtaniyas are in the new wave of younger Kirtan artists bringing the divine practice of Bhakti from the ancient to the modern world. With fierce drumming and passionate singing they light up everyone around them and spread the deep joy of God's names. An evening with the Kirtaniyas will never be forgotten! Lots of love, Jai— Jai Uttal http://www.jaiuttal.com →
