Amala Kirtana Dasa lives in Dallas and is active in chanting Hare Krsna there. For a breif period in time earlier this year he chanted Hare Krishna here in Australia. Born in Brazil, Amala has been performing kirtan for over 20 years. As a young man he spent a great deal of time in Bengal, India, studying the Bengali style of singing.
Raised in a family of kirtaniyas Amala, who has been called the “Pavarotti of Kirtan,” has fused the Brazilian sound with the traditional Bengali kirtan to produce something unique.
On his Australian tour Amala, who is based in Dallas, Texas, was supported by the “World Sankirtan Party”, the same kirtan band who supported Dave Stringer, Jai Uttal, and Madhava on their recent Australian tours.
