KIRTAN w Radhika Das and Friends!


Find time to join a beautiful sangha of like minded souls where you can tune in and sing out with love and devotion. It’ll not only clear your mind but also open your heart.


15 years ago he went in search of spiritual truth and deeper happiness. The path he connected most with is “Bhakti Yoga,” the journey of love and devotion, and of the various limbs of bhakti, Radhika dedicated most of himself to becoming absorbed in the ancient practice of Kirtan.

“I’m devoting my life to helping people find spiritual fulfilment, whether it be from an existing yoga or spiritual background or those with limited or no exposure to any practice. My aim is to help you toward a holistic way of joyful living.”

A variety of spaces have been kind to include Radhika Das’s efforts, such as collaborative events with Russell Brand, yoga festivals: Wanderlust, World Yoga Festival, Soul Circus and at venues like The British Museum.


My friend Radhika Das, a beautiful friend and spiritual connector is performing soon in the UK! It will be an amazing experience.

– Russell Brand –

Radhika Das shares mantra music from his heart and soul.

It’s been a joy watching him evolve over the years, sharing his art with people across the world.

– Jay Shetty –

I have had the privilege to call Radhika a dear friend and brother for many years now, and see him grow and flourish. Radhika’s kirtan always makes me dance…because his voice communicates the intention of his heart: to be of service to the Divine and to invite everyone he meets into the joyous experience of kirtan. Your spirits will be thoroughly lifted— your feet may lift you up too! Let fear and hesitation melt away and let him lead you into the life changing ocean of sacred mantra…
