deva premal
featured artist

 
deva premal Deva Premal grew up in Germany in a spiritual family where she was introduced at an early age to chanting and meditation.  Her mother is a musician and her father an artist.

"My father has been on the spiritual path since the 50's, studying Yoga, spiritual scriptures and whatever books were available back then, making it his daily discipline to meditate every morning between 3 and 5 am," she says.

"When I was growing up he devised exercises for my sister and I, to help us become more aware of the moment:  We were taught to say 'Om' whenever we placed something on the table, for example. Another was to say 'Ram' whenever we switched on the light!"

As a child she studied the violin and piano but it wasn't until she met Miten, at the Osho Commune in India, that she began exploring her voice.

"When Miten began encouraging me to sing harmony with him, I didn't need a big push!  I had grown up with music so the ground work was already done.  And we sounded pretty good together!  At first I played a supporting role, singing second voice, playing keyboards, and co-leading our workshops, which used mantras and chants from different cultures.  I was very shy to sing alone, but encouraged by Miten, I became more confident and eventually discovered my voice."

miten Miten grew up in the 60s.  "At that time, England was alive with rock 'n' roll music and the sound of The Beatles.  Everywhere you went it was on the street.  It was a time of innocence, a time when you could sense the possibility that life has no boundaries."

He later went on to establish a successful career for himself in the 70s and 80s as a singer/songwriter, touring with such bands as Fleetwood Mac, Lou Reed and Ry Cooder.  During this time he released two well-received albums, one produced by The Kinks, another by noted Los Angeles producer Bones Howe for Ariola Records.  Ultimately he found the rock 'n' roll life-style unfulfilling and empty, and he began an inner search which led him into the world of meditation.

It was at this time he came upon the most important and influential figure in his life, the rebel mystic, Osho.  "After I met Osho, everything fell into place," he says.  "He gave purpose to my life, and an understanding that divine chaos is the essence of it.  My eyes were opened to new possibilities which I continue to explore to this day." Miten proceeded to live his explorations, spending most of his time in India at the ashram of Osho, where he eventually found a way to express his gratitude, not surprisingly, through music.
