about

Door of Faith was produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, known not only for his seminal rap and rock recordings, but also for his recent definitive work with Neil Diamond and the late Johnny Cash. Rubin is deservedly famous for his ability to capture the essence of an artist's expression: there is nothing extraneous on these tracks. Mostly, it's Krishna Das' weathered, sonorous voice and his harmonium, joined here and there by instrumental tracings-western strings, horns, and keyboards, and Benjy Wertheimer's eastern esraj. Other veterans of KD's previous recordings include Lili Haydn, John McDowell and Benmont Tench. A duet with daughter, Janaki on "Mere Gurudev" is a most tender invocation.


“[Door of Faith] has a wonderful, full sound with some excellent touches, like the emotional cello on ‘Sita's Prayer.’ … This would be excellent as a meditation aid, but it also transcends that to become a fascinating listening experience throughout.
" - Chris Nickson / AMG
