Kalidas is a philosophical pop artist with an occasional comic twist. Kalidas' music stems from his meditative background. He tries to shape his music from the inside out. He lived in the great Southwest where he spent 11 years studying mystical philosophy and volunteering in different spiritual communities. He read every spiritual book he could get his hands on, always trying to understand the Way. As he evolved, he fused his collegiate musical roots with his Eastern philosophical roots. As he moved away from the yoga/chant music scene with its inherent politics (as with any industry or business), he began to create pop songs with diverse musical influences and range.
Kalidas is also a writer and has written two books, "L.A. Sadhu" and "Elements of the Immortal Dance." "L.A. Sadhu" documents his 11 year journey into the world of spiritual communities as well as his years in Los Angeles living as a spiritual practitioner yet simultaneously integrating back into the mainstream culture. "Elements of the Immortal Dance" chronicles his time delving into a deeper understanding of pain and love.
Part-time rock star and full-time seeker, Kalidas' plans on releasing another single later this year. You can support his vision by buying his music or making a donation.
Kalidas is a cum laude graduate of Vanderbilt University and studied holistic health at the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics.
