This FREE White Swan Wednesday offering is taken from Universal Light, Donna De Lory’s just-released collection of remixes and bonus tracks from her most recent studio album, The Unchanging. Whereas the original album is one of the most deeply personal artistic statements in her deep catalog of mantra music classics, the remixes capture the experience of her celebratory live performances.
“Amma (Carmen Rizzo World Dance Remix)" is an ecstatic, disco funk-infused journey to the heart of the dance floor. Crisp percussion and a throbbing beat elevate soaring Donna’s vocals — and the listener’s spirit — driving home Donna’s belief that “dancing is a way for us all to go within, connect with our strength and experience our souls’ freedom.”
'Mama Come Save My Soul' from the album THE ROAD by Avasa & Matthew Love (feat. Benjy Wertheimer)
AVAILABLE JUNE 25!
Songs for the Sangha is an exploration of fresh musical terrain for these beloved devotional musicians – a collection of ancient Indian texts sung with effortless artistry by Deva Premal, coupled with Miten’s sensual reggae grooves that pulse and weave beneath spiritually inspired anthems.
Add classical Indian bamboo flute, courtesy of renowned Nepalese bansuri maestro and vocalist Manose, the rock solid foundation of producer Joby Baker’s bass and drums and UK keyboard wizard Spencer Cozens’ jazz-inflected acoustic piano contributions and you have this very rich, evocative new album. Surrounding themselves with three such fine and diverse musicians, Deva Premal & Miten have transformed their music into what is essentially a musical magic carpet ride, played exquisitely by an elegant five-piece band.
Translated from Sanskrit, sangha means “spiritual family.” The golden thread that runs through this record is a sense of harmony, adventure and devotion. Qualities you’d definitely be grateful for in any family, spiritual or otherwise.
Marti Nikko talks about the roots of her debut album, Dreaming In Sanskrit, recorded with and produced by DJ Drez.
Dreaming In Sanskrit is AVAILABLE NOW!
