Click here to listen. This conversation with Sean Johnson was recorded way back in December before Christmas. I’d intended to release it sometime in January, but then came the epic back spasm — and so here we are. But with perfect synchronicity, Sean tells me toward the end of the interview that he & David Newman will be going to OM Fest in Bermuda in May. I didn’t know last December that I’d be joining them, but an invitation arrived from the Bermuda kirtan community who attended Bhakti Fest last summer, and I’ve decided to say YES! My flight is booked and I’m really excited — OM Fest is the first weekend in May, and I’ll be telling you more as we get closer.

Sean also mentions in the interview that he studied with Russill Paul at the Naropa Institute — another synchronicity as I’m blessed to tell you that Russill is coming on as a Platinum sponsor of the podcast. I’ve been a long time fan of his work, and New World Kirtan is honored by this association.
