Deva Premal’s composition, the Seven Chakra Gayatri Mantra, debuts on DEVA, nearly 20 years since her original, ground-breaking version of the ancient Gayatri Mantra began appearing on playlists and topping alternative music charts world-wide. DEVA is a calling – beyond the chattering mind, the heaviness of the heart and the numerous distractions of life, into a place of refuge and conscious relaxation. Alternately soothing, uplifting, and inviting, Deva’s voice ushers us into deeper states of meditation, serving as a portal to inner-peace. The album is book-ended by versions of the “Seven Chakra Gayatri Mantra”, creating an experience of a mystical journey well travelled and coming full circle. Tracks range from alluring chants with life-partner Miten, to soaring bansuri lines by Nepalese maestro Manose, embedded inside a musical landscape created by producer Joby Baker‘s sensual groove based instrumentation – including the prayerful “Prabhujee”, written by Pundit Ravi Shankar and featuring his daughter, Anoushka Shankar, on sitar. Always nurturing, this musical journey inspires everything from deep meditation to healing sleep to gentle dance movements, making the album tracks suitable for diverse playlists.
