Password - Deva Premal
The enchanting new album from the pioneer of Western mantra singing, Deva Premal, is a landmark in the genre. Entitled Password, the album was recorded with singer/writer/guitarist and life partner Miten and Nepalese bansuri maestro Manose, in Copenhagen, at the conclusion of their 2010 world tour.
Password marks an exciting new direction in the trio’s unique blending of East and West, embedding the extraordinary energy carried by ancient mantras into a rich fusion of sound and silence.
The material, mostly self-composed by the trio, features Deva’s golden voice, and the incredible virtuosity of Manose’s bansuri (Indian bamboo flute). Guided by Miten and The Essence producer RajRishi, the album journeys through sparkling soundscapes embellished by some of Europe’s best young jazz musicians. The result is a haunting, seductive invitation to embrace a new and refreshing perspective on a style that is fast becoming essential listening for those looking for depth and spiritual nourishment in music.
“Mantras are magical passwords that transform the mundane into the sacred.” – Deva Premal
