The Bhajan Babas, appearing on Australias Gold Coast produce sounds that almost tear a hole in the curtain of maya.
Here are the Bhajan Babas. Venogopal (lead vocal,harmonium) and Yamalarjuna (drums) with Janmastami (on bass). They played their first gig at New Govardhana end of year festival. They played a number of times at Sunday feasts at Coolangatta an they did the opening kirtan for the 24 hr kirtan. The Bhajan Babas opened for Madhava’s kirtan at New Govardhana.
Subhangi,Maharani,and Lila (Janmastami’s daughter) recently the joined the Babas to provide back up vocals. The motivation for the band is to introduce people to the chanting of sanskrit meditational mantras through music, especially the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra or great mantra for deliverance. The Bhajan Babas encourage everyone to chant, dance and be happy.
The band has will be doing an extensive tour of northern NSW and south east Qld in Dec/Jan. So watch out for them. There motto is for those about to rock… first listen to the Bhajan Babas!
