David Newman - Acoustic Chant: Ukulele Kirtan Serenades

David Newman - Acoustic Chant: Ukulele Kirtan Serenades

Although the traditional devotional chants of Kirtan are not often paired with ukulele, on his eleventh release, David Newman (Durga Das) not only leads with this unlikely instrument, but also adds in Hawaiian, Appalachian and American folk music flavors to the 10 sumptuous duets he sings with his wife Mira.  Also available as a songbook with CD, listeners can find sheet music with melodies and chords for a variety of instruments so they can play and chant along as they enjoy the healing mantras more thoroughly. What an amazing offering!
