The SOUL OF MANTRA – LIVE tour is augmented by Canadian Joby Baker on bass, vocals and keyboards and Danish percussionist, Rishi. Together, this unique ensemble serves as a musical bridge to experiencing the Soul of Mantra. Deva: “This planet is definitely shaking and trembling right now. It is an amazing moment to be alive because it is becoming very clear that we cannot expect peace to be delivered from outside – we have to find it within. For me, the mantras are a gateway to inner peace and to a deeper acceptance – and my joy is to share them.”
With a large, faithful and constantly expanding audience – from New York to Moscow, from Paris and London to Buenos Aires and L.A, Deva Premal & Miten show us, year after year, that in the spirit of music and mantra, humanity is able to unite.
Deva Premal & Miten have traveled the world for 20 years, sharing the healing power of mantras. The unique blend of Deva’s voice, the ancient Sanskrit chants, Miten’s soulful songs and Manose’s sacred flute offers audiences an evening of peace and transformation.
Miten: “Mantras are such a powerful force. We’ve seen so many people — us included — become spiritually rejuvenated as a result of chanting them. Personally, the dusty cobwebs and darker corners of my life have been washed clean by the mantras.” Deva Premal & Miten’s concerts are known for their transformational and healing effect. Their voices, their music and not least the communal chanting inspire a meeting of body, mind and spirit.
Deva: “For me, the greatest gift of chanting is that it brings a deep relaxation into my busy mind. In Sanskrit, ‘man’ means mind and ‘tra’ means to be free from, so ‘mantra’ is literally a way to free the mind. This has been the essence of my journey with meditation.”
Nepalese bansuri maestro, Manose – acknowledged as among the world’s best – accompanies as always Deva Premal & Miten both on flute, vocals and various instruments, including ukulele.
