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.
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.
The rich mix of alluring chants includes 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.
Deva means “divine” in Sanskrit, and this beautiful collection of mantras reflects the many dimensions of Deva Premal’s soul and musical expression, from the beginning of her spiritual journey through today.
