ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired in the 60's by the powerful protest music of Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, and Phil Ochs and in the 70's by the sublime spirituality of George Harrison, and blessed with the discovery of a world liberating message, Sankarshan Das is now spreading a sublime message that can indeed transform our entire planet into a paradise. What more can be said? You will understand what we mean when you dive in and taste it for yourself. Happy listening!

Sankarshan Das, a visionary singer/songwriter is musically rooted in the folk music revival of the mid 60's from his days when he performed at Houston's legendary folk music venue, Sand Mountain, the spawning ground of many musical greats. Frustrated with the deteriorating world situation, he desired to bring to Planet Earth a spiritual revolution. Looking for the proper venue, in 1968 he hitchhiked to San Francisco where he devoted himself full time to writing and singing songs for bringing higher consciousness to the world. In San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, at the celebrated Polo Fields concert on May 7, 1969 he made a dazzling surprise guest appearance performing a set between the Grateful Dead and the Jefferson Airplane eliciting roars of approval from the audience of thousands and a prediction by the emcee of his imminent fame.

Seeking a more peaceful atmosphere after personal witnessing violence in December 1969 at the ill fated Altamont concert, he thumbed and strummed 2,000 miles, serenading his drivers making them smile, to Austin, Texas and became an instant campus sensation with his daily concerts on the South Mall of the University of Texas by the statue of George Washington. On February 22, 1970 the Daily Texan newspaper published an article about him called "Minstrel Serenades Students." Two students were interviewed and quoted in the article. A female student said, “That’s the happiest, most optimistic person I’ve ever heard." And a male student who was sitting beside her said, “Yes. It sort of makes you feel real good.” After his concert series on the UT campus he moved on to become the house musician at the Sattva vegetarian restaurant located one block west of the campus.

In spite of his increasing popularity, he realized that more important than pursuing name and fame would be finding and spreading that message which could completely revolutionize the global society. Therefore, in 1971 putting his promising music career aside, he adopted the path of bhakti yoga, the topmost science of self-realization, under the expert guidance of the world's foremost master of bhakti yoga, the late A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, and embarked upon a four-and-a-half decade's journey of self-discovery traveling all over the world soaking up and sharing wisdom from the world's greatest luminaries and visionaries.

Now having gained the asset of self and world liberating knowledge, he is bringing an entirely new genre of thrilling and uplifting music for healing a rapidly disintegrating, turbulent, and tormented world. He now circles the globe twice a year sharing his loving and enlightening message music in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia with all those who are eager to hear.
