- listen to tracks!
David Garrigues is a believer right down to his ashtanga toes, and you can hear that in every note of his kirtan. This devotional collection is at once an exotic, fervent romp fueled by rich traditional instrumentation, and a spare, tender vocal meditation. Respond to the call, or excape in a daydream of India reverence and driving earthy melodies.
Frequently, at strategically placed moments, my Guru used to call his beloved students 'bad man' or 'bad lady'. He would call you 'bad man' to lighten you up when you made a mistake or were late to class. Or he'd call you 'bad lady' when you'd tell him something funny or out of the ordinary. One time a woman was offended when he called her bad lady. He answered her by laughing and saying "bad means good, bad means good!" I've always felt he was responding with humor to each person's inevitable bent to walk their own crooked path to God. You might be a little 'bad' but really its good because it's your way of walking and the only way you'll find Yoga is to be a rebel and go for your own truth.
