This FREE White Swan Wednesday offering comes from Songs for the Sangha, the brand new release from beloved mantra ambassadors, Deva Premal & Miten with Manose.
Translated from Sanskrit, sangha means "spiritual family," and the golden thread that runs through this recording is a pure sense of harmony, adventure and devotion -- qualities for which anyone would be grateful in any family or community, spiritual or otherwise. This new album weaves the ancient Sanskrit mantras into songs celebrating the inner journey, melding many different musical and spiritual traditions in a joyous flow.
Speaking of joyous flow, here’s “Brahma Gayatri Mantra,” a hymn to "the supreme principle of truth which is godliness.” Its understated groove, jazzy vibe and Deva’s enticing mantric intonations will quiet your mind, ignite the love in your heart and incite the sway in your hips. Think of this irresistible sound as “sacred cool.”
'Mama Come Save My Soul' from the album THE ROAD by Avasa & Matthew Love (feat. Benjy Wertheimer)
AVAILABLE JULY 31st!
David Newman’s eleventh release, Acoustic Chant: Ukulele Kirtan Serenades, was born out of David’s desire to record an intimate chant album, and his love for the ukulele. Acoustic Chant is a soothing and celebratory recording consisting of traditional Kirtan mantras accompanied by elements of Hawaiian, Appalachian, and American folk music.
On this CD, David demonstrates his rich relationship with the yogic chant tradition while continuing to apply unique and eclectic musical influences to this ancient practice. Acoustic Chant: Ukulele Kirtan Serenades features beautiful duets between David and his wife, Mira, delivering ten gorgeous time honored Sanskrit mantras with elegant simplicity, inviting listeners to sing along and effortlessly embrace the healing joys of chanting.
Filmed in the garden and in their rented house in Byron Bay, Australia, Deva & Miten take us on a magical journey behind the mikes, as they tell the story of recording their new album Songs for the Sangha. Together with Nepalese bansuri maestro Manose and Grammy nominated producer and multi instrumentalist Joby Baker and UK keyboard specialist Spencer Cozens, they weave an enchanting mix of mantra and songs of celebration, designed to inspire us all on our journey towards the light!
