Radhanatha Swami sings at the 2008 24 Hour Kirtan Festival
The mp3s below represent the full 24-hours of the 2008 Twenty-four Hour Kirtan Festival, recorded in June in New Vrindavan, West Virginia. This once-a-year festival of non-stop chanting--one of the only such events to be held in the United States--attracts hundreds of the most devoted and experienced Krishna kirtan singers and musicians from all over the world. Lovers of kirtan will certainly enjoy hearing many vastly expanded versions of familiar kirtan melodies, recorded in a uniquely powerful and focused devotional environment.
In absolute reality, there is no difference between Krishna and His names. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu--Krishna Himself--recommended constant chanting of the names of Krishna as the most essential spiritual practice of this day and age. The ever-fresh attractiveness of the maha-mantra certainly comes through in these recordings--which Krishna.com is happily able to present in their entirety. We think you'll agree that these are some of the most fresh, exciting, and inspiring kirtans in the world.
