Chaitanya Chandra are devotional songs recorded in the fall of 1985 at Vaiyasaki’s home studio in Brooklyn, New York. It was his offering for the 500th anniversary of the appearance of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu in Bengal, India in 1486. Sri Caitanya was the incarnation that spread the chanting of Krishna kirtan all over India. This is a lovely album because the songs have georgeous raga melodies with many of the songs ending in the chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra.
In 2002, the tracks had been digitally re-mastered to improve the sonic clarity and bring out more of the subtleties and nuances of the music and chanting.
2 bonus tracks were included, a raga melody Vaiyasaki had recorded in Estonia in 2003, and a rare melody sung by His Holiness Vishnujana Swami,
Includes CD Booklet with song texts.
