Documentary filmmaker Jeremy Frindel tells the remarkable story of famed chant master Krishna Das in this inspirational film featuring music by J Mascis and Devada. The year was 1970. Long Island singer Jeffrey Kagel was set to be the front man for the band that would soon become Blue Oyster Cult when he suddenly sold off everything he owned, and disappeared into the foothills of the Himalayas. There, after meeting an obscure Hindu guru named Neem Karoli Baba, the deeply depressed drug addict who once teetered on the cusp of rock & roll stardom would begin the incredible transformation into Krishna Das, a world-renowned vocalist specializing in the Indian devotional music known as Kirtan. Conversations with Ram Dass, Sharon Salzberg, Daniel Goleman, and Rick Rubin offer unprecedented insight into the life of a man who turned his back on certain fame to embrace his true fate.
