US band set to rock Hare Krishna event
Teneshia Naidoo Published: Nov 16, 2008
An American band that fuses Indian classical and Western music will perform at South Africa’s first Hare Krishna youth retreat at Sun City this month.
The band, As Kindred Spirits, will perform in the country for the first time.
The retreat, from November 28 to 30, will be hosted by the Krsna Balaram Youth Group, the youth wing of the International Society of Krishna Consciousness (ISKON) in Johannesburg. The event will feature several workshops to help youngsters cope with stress.
The organisation believes young people express their frustrations by engaging in sex, taking drugs and consuming alcohol.
Kartik Mistry, the organisation’s head, said the retreat was aimed at addressing youth problems and giving them “positive reinforcement”.
“The idea is to create a positive impression for them through all the problems that youth generally face. We want this retreat to help them look at these issues and work them out through team building,” he said.
The US band will entertain participants with their mix of Sanskrit songs and mantras.
