History

Fifth World Raga was the name of an acid-rock band popular during the hippie counterculture movement of the 1960s. The band's music was spiritual in nature, and reflected a coming post-apocalyptic age of primitivism, commonly referred to as the Fifth World. The spiritual strength of the band's music was generated by way of a mystical narcotic known as Ghostdancing. The band's ascetic qualities were inspired largely in part by elements of the Native American Hopi tradition. Fifth World Raga's largest engagement took place at a concert at Golden Gate Park in August of 1968, where they performed alongside other notable artists including: The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Van Morrison and the Doors. The band broke apart in the early 1970s, but lead singer, Fred Kominsky, initiated a revival movement in the mid 1990s.
