In October we raised $42,607 (107% of our $40,000 goal) and have been incredibly grateful to be able to release two albums that we love!
If you don’t have it already, you can order/download HuDost Bandcamp ’Sufi Kirtan’ & ‘Eastern Rose (2015 Remaster)’ here:
We are delighted to announce the release of HUDOST Sufi Kirtan!
We have some exciting news… Our ‘Sufi Kirtan’ interfaith-world-chant album is finished and has been released! There are already some amazing reviews of the new album in the works that we will post very soon!
In addition to the new album, we are also celebrating our 10th Anniversary with a remastered reissue of our debut CD ‘In an Eastern Rose Garden’.
Sufi Kirtan sounds fantastic as it was mixed by Oz Fritz (Tom Waits, Zakir Hussain, Bill Laswell) and mastered by Dale Becker of Bernie Becker Mastering. We have some really amazing musicians joining us on it as well including Dan Walters, Arjun Bruggeman (Krishna Das’ tabla man!), Martha Mooke, George Tortorelli, Anit Ghosh, Bryan Brock, Katherine Smith & Robert Oakes (of Oakes & Smith), John de Kadt, Ashana Sofia, Julian Douglas, Melissa Hyman, Jim Beckwith, JP Durand (from Incendio), Sarah Bowman & Joshua Greenbaum. We really hope you enjoy it! It is an extremely special album for us.
“The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.”
Having toured the US, Canada, and Europe constantly since April 2006, we have grown and expanded, travelled rocky and glorious terrain and MARVELED at all we have learned and explored. In this time we (Moksha and Jemal-the core members of HuDost) have grown as artists, as seekers, as a couple and as a family. In 2013 our amazing son was brought into the world. As we approach our 10th Anniversary as a band, we are about to embark on the next chapter of our careers with two very exciting projects; both of these fulfill longstanding dreams. This is a big step and we are very excited.
These two projects are two records that are now completed and ready for your ears. One of these is our ‘Sufi Kirtan’ album of interfaith world chants and zikr that genuinely speaks from our hearts. This includes material we have been working on for a long time. The second is an album that has been done as a collaboration with Steve Kilbey from the Australian band ‘The Church’ (who were recently ushered into the Australian Hall of Fame). This album has incredible guest musicians on it including Jon Anderson (from YES)!
