“The big surprise of the “ecstatic chant” evening was MC Yogi, my new favorite, hilariously fun kirtan-ist–think Beastie Boys meets Krishna Das…I know all those Buddha Bar albums and plenty of people from Madonna to Sting have merged pop and yoga, but MC Yogi (a.k.a. the adorable Nicholas Giacomini) is the first that I’ve seen merge kirtan and hip hop. And he’s got quite the posse as backup: Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, and Bhagavan Das. ––Yoga Journal
