SHOUT OUTS

The next generation of excitement. Enthralling.
— Mark Abadi, Bhakti Fest Producer
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.
