Krishna Kishora (Kish) is a musical adept, his various talents as a composer and artist enhanced by the depth of his practice. Kishor’s flute playing hums with spiritual resonance and a deep devotion to the path. His rhythmic style is distinct and creative, his kirtan is soulful, and he loves connecting with the audience in a genuine and energetic way. He is one of the founders of the world renowned Kirtan group the Mayapuris and the prime engineer manning the helm throughout the “9 islands” recording project. Kish is also the head of a non-profit organization meant for sharing the culture of kirtan and bhakti with youth from bhakti centers all around the world.

Bali Rico is a lyricist, multi-instrumentalist, author and bhakta. Born in the U.S. to Colombian parents, he and younger brother Kish spent their formative years living in ashrams in the sacred land of Mayapur, West Bengal, learning the traditions and music of ancient India. Bali’s mridanga playing is fiery, innovative and precise, helping to create the Mayapuris signature sound. As a lyricist, Bali’s flow mirrors the intricate rhythm of a born percussionist, with thoughtful prose full of insight, philosophy and personal reflection.
