Soweto, South Africa – In a harmonious endeavor that transcends cultural boundaries, the Hare Krishna Mzansi Choir is making waves with its innovative fusion of African choral music and traditional Vaishnava bhajans. 

Led by the dynamic duo Caru Candi and her husband, Ujwala, this choir has captivated audiences and stirred hearts with their soul-stirring performances in ISKCON South Africa. Now, the initiative calls for participatory support to expand their reach and perfect their service.

Caru Candi and Ujwala, the driving forces behind the Hare Krishna Mzansi Choir, recently sat down for an interview to shed light on their groundbreaking project. Their vision is to bring the vibrant African style of choral singing to the spiritual experience of Vaishnava culture, creating a captivating musical experience that resonates with diverse communities.

“We aim to ‘African-Step’ our way through the boundaries of conventional music and bring people closer to The Divine through the power of choral,” Caru Candi expressed passionately. “Our goal is to, in a way, concatenate the melodies and rhythms of African choral music with the devotional fervor of Vaishnava bhajans forging a unique blend that uplifts and unites.”

However, to achieve their aspirations, the Hare Krishna Mzansi Choir needs developmental support. They actively seek participation from individuals with a passion for music and a desire to be part of this extraordinary endeavor. Additionally, the initiative welcomes any support, including general resources and musical training, to help them refine their craft and reach new heights.

“Our journey has been incredibly rewarding, but we need the support of the community to truly make a lasting impact,” Ujwala expressed. “We invite all music enthusiasts, philanthropists, and culturally inclined devotees to join hands with us in this musical odyssey and bring the beauty of an African expression of Krishna Conscious culture to the world.”
