Because we believe in the power of love.
Because we choose to live this life free. Because we know freedom starts in the mind.
Because the mind is conquered by the heart. :::::
Srikala is an Emcee, DJ, producer, and percussionist. As a DJ, Srikala uses Ableton Live to perform his original music, improvising live with Indian percussion and ambient vocals. His projects incorporate dub, hip hop, reggae, world beats, and sacred mantras. His mission is to uplift, open hearts, and move bodies.
Growing up in the streets of Bedford Stuyvesant in Brooklyn, NYC, and being the son of West Indian parents, Srikala naturally gained a deep love for listening to and creating hip hop, R&B, dub, and reggae music. Influenced by his mother, who always had a variety of styles in the tape deck, his musical palette expanded as he aged, incorporating various styles of music such as rock, blues, pop and jazz. At the age of 18, life led him to set aside the world and live as a monk for 6 years, where he studied the science of transcendental sound vibration in the Bhakti tradition.
Transitioning from monastic life and into the world, Srikala trained in audio engineering at the Institute of Audio Research in New York City and began releasing albums in the Fall of 2011. In the last three years, he released four albums and has worked in collaboration with many amazing artists around
the world, including EarthRise SoundSystem. Srikala’s current focus is the release of his next solo album, on the Black Swan record label, which he will be touring in 2014. He plays regularly with “The Flowdown,” his jazz funk fusion band, and is consistently producing conscious nightlife events in NYC with his production crew, Unitribe. In all of Srikala’s expressions, he seeks to bring a message of hope,
inspiration, and joy to the mass population.

I do think.. krishna likes to see our initiative though.. and that the key words are "Keep singing" for Krishna. But maybe thats not the service He has in mind for the individual. But It always sucks from the outsiders perspective to see a great talent gone unused...
