Epiphany CD by Manose is the latest release by the Nepalese flutist, with guests Deva Premal & Miten.
The rising sun; prayer flags fluttering in the breeze; a quenching rainstorm – simple images leap to life in these new songs by Nepal native Manose. With his bansuri flute – accompanied by guitars, cello, percussion and guest vocals by Deva Premal & Miten – Manose unveils the divinity that resides within each of us.
Manose, Nepal’s premier flutist, fell in love as a child with the bamboo flute. His astonishing ability to improvise is grounded in a technical mastery gained from devoted study to classical raga music, allowing him to explore the instrument’s practically limitless potential for subtle expression.
Since 2005, Manose has been touring worldwide with Deva Premal and Miten, seducing thousands with the lilting, mellifluous sounds of his simple bamboo flute.
In addition to his work with Deva Premal & Miten, Manose has collaborated with Grammy winner Jai Uttal, as well as bluegrass hero Peter Rowan, kirtan superstar Krishna Das, the Chicago Children’s Choir, tabla maestro Swapan Chowdhury, John Densmore of the Doors and The New Maihar Band, an ensemble created by the late Ustad Ali Akhbar Khan.
