This month brings us 2 brand new CDs I am really excited to share. First, the newest in a successive line of fantastic CDs from the inimitable Deva Premal! Your Password to a “rich fusion of sound and silence” has just arrived!
This much anticipated new album brings all new music with a slightly new twist and includes her signature collaboration with Miten & Manose. From the producer of her very first album (and still one of my favorites) Essence, Danish producer Rishi introduced a bit of Copenhagen’s jazz scene into the mix. The result is a “musically refined album with sublime arrangements of ancient mantras, complementing Deva’s soulful vocals.”
Mantras are passwords that transform the mundane into the sacred,” says Deva Premal. And I for one, feel that Premal’s chanting takes me on that extraordinary journey! Check out this clip of one of my favorite songs from her new album entitled Narashima.
Next up, finds us with the second installment of the Playing For Change series, PFC 2! As always, I am in love with anything they do. Songs from around the world sung by incredible beings sharing their voice, their gift and their power. What an inspiring form of unity! We are all apart of this global community and the power of music to bring us all together is astounding. Share in the power, share in the magic and help support the amazingness of the Playing For Change Movement. Find out how you can get involved!
