A true artist can sense when he has achieved the perfect balance between tradition and innovation. In the category of “yoga rock stars” and kirtan ( a form of Indian devotional music) leaders, Jai Uttal is such an artist. I had heard his voice many times:bellowing through the speakers of the car stereo as I sped down the highway, whispering through the earphones of my iPod as I jetsetted overseas, buzzing softly in the lobby of yoga studios as I unfurled my mat. But meeting the face and the personality behind his victorious voice and eclectic melodies felt surprisingly like visiting with an old friend. Jai Uttal sat with me in the midst of his busy traveling schedule to chat about life, music, becoming a father and his heart’s deepest yearnings.
