Ray Raghunath Cappo "From Punk To Monk: A Memoir" - Book

RELEASE DATE: 4/9/24

The heartfelt memoir of Ray Raghunath Cappo, a legendary hardcore-punk musician-turned-monk, told with warmth, candor, and humor. Ray was a hardcore-punk singer and pioneer of the straight-edge movement living on the Lower East Side of New York City in the '80s, where his band Youth Of Today and Shelter played to packed clubs and touched thousands of people across the globe. As his unusual adventure unfolded, he encountered extraordinary characters, witnessed deep acts of devotion, and experienced profound moments of divine connection, leading to a radical transformation that was ego-crushing and blissful all at once.
