London Soho’s Radha-Krishna Temple has teamed with creative agency Mr President to create the world’s first Hare Krishna themed-Christmas album.
The lead single, entitled We wish you a Merry Krishna, was recorded and distributed in two weeks, while the accompanying EP consists of five original tracks, each recorded in a unique Krishna style.
Proceeds of the album, which can be downloaded, will go to local good causes supported by the Temple.
Nick Emmel, strategic partner at Mr President, whose office neighbours the temple, commented: “Everyday our neighbours, The Devotees of the Radha Krishna Temple, sing, dance and bring a little bit of happiness to the people of Soho.
"This Christmas, Mr President worked with them to produce and release a truly collaborative album of Krishna carols, with proceeds from sales going directly to good causes supported by the Temple. Our vision for this is simple; to show that all communities can come together at Christmas and share a little joy.”
Other tracks on the album include Deck the Halls with Boughs of Hare and Ding Dong Merrily on Hare.
