German-born Deva Premal shares her fabulous voice with sacred Sanskrit mantras. A stellar cast of musicians including the amazing Jai Uttal, Miten and Kit Walker, contribute acoustic grand piano, keyboards, guitar, flute and percussion. Premal chose the title Love Is Space - also her personal mantra - to remind us that love has no barriers or boundaries.
While most of the seven tracks are Hindu mantras, she included Om Mani Padme Hum, a Tibetan mantra, that progresses with passionate joy. Idé Weré Weré comes from the Yoruba people of Nigeria and is dedicated to Ochun, the goddess of love. Liner notes provide all lyrics in both the original language and English, which really helps listeners enjoy the album. One of the finest chant albums of 2000, Love Is Space is a rare gift indeed.
