The next generation of excitement. Enthralling.
The world of mantra music in the west is becoming fertile ground for yogi-artists to channel their inspiration in a widening variety of creative genre-bending directions. I experienced The Householders bold integration of kirtan, hip hop, and electronic dance music for the first time this weekend at Bhakti Fest-Midwest and it was awesome. I bought their latest album Yama and have been listening ever since, sharing their tracks in yoga classes on my playlists as well. Digging their music...Heat-seeking electronic rhythms from David Goddard and Phil Petrie; spit-fire hip hop rhymes— new world sutras — delivering yoga philosophy with a refreshing edge from rapper Zach Ketterhagen; fantastic soaring pop-soul vocals from Jaylen Green, and a layer of harmonium and enchanting traditional mantra singing from Nema Nyar holds down the roots. More folks should know about these guys.
I’m so glad I discovered The Householders. They are the perfect band for the Festival of Colors, you are in for a real treat!
Provide heart-pumping beats that combine conscious rap, traditional mantra, and sweet ballads.
Elevates modern sacred music to new heights.
Very unique and groovy. Love the digital sounds with the consciousness built in.
