Recorded in the US, Deva Premal’s second album contains six sacred mantras from India, including Gat? Gat?, the heart sutra of Buddha, and Om Mane Padme Hum, the ancient Tibetan invocation, plus several of her concert favorites. Also included is the exquisitely performed West African chant, Id? Wer? Wer?.
Backed by ambient grooves, subtle electronica and hand percussion, Deva Premal’s transcendent vocals induce ecstatic contemplation. The Gayatri Mantra, the world’s oldest known mantra for purification and healing, is the centerpiece for this truly meditative album.
