Biography

There are at least two artists named Govinda - in chronological order -:

1) Govinda start their activities in 1994, when original members of Keshava (Satya Mana, Pandit Ananda and Yasodanandana), that had some of their new age tracks released on Klaus Schulze label “Innovative communication” decided to change. Everything started when the three Keshava members met DJ Om, who was quite well known in the Los Angeles area, Balearic Islands and Barcelona, so they decided to start a new project, Govinda, along with the support of Indian and Sri Lankan singers, plus the singer/dancer “Chandra”. The new project gets immediate interest, and Govinda release their first album “Selling India by the pound” and their first 12” single “Trascendental Ecstasy” which also includes a long and uptempo version of “Awaken”. They were signed by Vox Pop, an Italian indie label which, at the time, included some of the most interesting indie bands such as Mau Mau, Africa Unite, Afterhours and Prozac+ among others. While touring Italy, they start to write songs for a new album, “Atom heart Madras” which will be released in 1997 by Chimes/EMI . Meanwhile, the Govinda combo, which now includes Satya Mana, Pandit Ananda, Yasodanandana, Maureen Fernando, Chandra and DJ Om, starts to collaborate with other artists such as Transglobal Underground, Loop Guru, Lovecalò, Farfa, Stefano Noferini and the cult label “Materiali Sonori”, that will ask Govinda to work on several remixes.
