Kala is a folk-hop raga roots lyricist who grew up in Vancouver BC. He named his debut album Blessed Coast in honour of the sacred lands which have inspired his songs and began the Blessed Coast festival initiative to support other local artists, artisans, teachers and practitioners in his community.
He just returned from India where he recorded three music videos(now in production) for his project with the Ancient Futures Clan and the hOmie SACR3D where they blend ancient Sanskrit Mantras and Yogic Wisdom with hard hitting hip hop and inspired R&B. He will be on tour with Buckman Coe at festivals across the coast this summer and will be backed up by Bucky’s band at Blessed Coast. He also performs with Andrew Kim and Zamir Dhanji of Naad as part of the Ancient Futures project.
