by Deva Premal —
Premal’s music is driven by a simple yet elegant vision: “Everybody with a voice can sing, and everyone with a breath in their body can experience their divinity … we share with others the healing power of music, and the bliss that it brings.”
And this she does well with a potent combination of her pure voice and the power of eight different mantras to express an inner beauty.
Her soulful rendering of these timeless sounds strikes a powerful chord, evoking the hallowed temples of our collective past.
But the potent combination of her pure voice and the power of the mantras also resonate today.
