A documentary about Krishna Das (born Jeffrey Kagel). Krishna Das goes on a journey to India to discover legendary spiritual teacher Neem Karoli Baba, through drug addiction and depression, to his eventual emergence as a world-famous Kirtan singer.
In 1970, suburban teen Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock ‘n’ roll stardom – turning down the lead singer slot in the band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from Long Island to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a little-known saint named Neem Karoli Baba. One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das follows Kagel’s journey to India and back, his struggles with depression and drug abuse, and his eventual emergence as Krishna Das – the world-renowned spiritual teacher, chant master and Grammy-winning recording artist.
The Story Of Krishna Das has a score by Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis and Devadas.
