Los Angeles, CA
Dave Stringer is a Grammy™-nominated record producer, singer and composer who has been profiled in publications worldwide as one of the most innovative artists of the new Kirtan movement. Stringer’s sound invokes the transcendent mysticism of traditional Indian instruments with the exuberant, groove-oriented sensibility of American gospel and the ringing harmonies of Appalachia. Initially trained as a visual artist, filmmaker and jazz musician, Stringer’s focus shifted significantly after video editing work brought him to an ashram in India in 1990. His work translates the venerable traditions of kirtan and yoga into inspiring and thoroughly modern participatory theatre, open to a multiplicity of interpretations, and accessible to all. Dave and his band have been touring tirelessly since 2000, playing concert halls and festivals all over the world.
