An in-depth celebration of Grammy-nominated singer/composer, DEVA PREMAL and her 22 years of sharing the healing power of mantra.
Many of Deva’s best-known tracks are featured here, notably the original version of Gayatri Mantra, which introduced the world to the power of mantra chanting. The track now boasts in excess of 20 million plays on Spotify. Other signature hits include Om Namo Bhagavate (from the Embrace album, released in 2002); Aad Guray (from the Dakshina album, which reached the mainstream Top 20 Amazon chart in 2005); and Seven Chakra Gayatri Mantra, the glorious, life-affirming chant (from the DEVA album) which earned Deva a Grammy nomination.
As well as these landmarks, The Essential Collection charts a pathway deep into the interior world of Deva’s music. “I set out to compile a sequence of tracks that would give maximum listening pleasure,” says Miten, who has mentored Deva since they began their musical journey together, in India 30 years ago. “Actually, this collection is my personal playlist, compiled during lockdown, for my own inner peace. I hope it eases the restless heart, as it has mine.”
