Dance of Shakti
Full Of Juice & Passion!
Shakti, Shiva' s partner is a very lively and powerful goddess, and Prem Joshua, with his latest release, Dance Of Shakti, has captured this flavor in the CD.  Full of harmony--round, melodious and at times soft and feminine--the music is always full of juice and passion! 

Joshua has successfully combined old mantras and interwoven them with the Indian sounds of sitar and the melodies of the bamboo flute.  And this music soon gets you going with the drive of the drum 'n' bass, electronic sounds, and electric guitars.  

This album is the meeting of the at-ease-ness of the East with the bubbling liveliness of the West.  Joshua, who lived in India for many years, has learned a lot from his Indian musical masters.  Now he brings back to the West his rich experience with Indian classical music. Here he lets Shakti ride the tiger of fast beats.  No dreamy Indian sounds here, but fresh and fast combinations that shake you awake, and get you ready to take off on any dance floor or disco.  Many of the tracks on Dance Of Shakti invite ecstatic dancing and celebration. 

 Pieces like Himalaya Trance or Nanak are a real treat, lasting longer than 10 minutes, and positively inviting you to surrender with the trance of the mantras.  Prem Joshua goes far beyond the old musical structures of the Occident and Orient.  This could easily become the next trend in clubs and discos from London to Madrid and New York to Paris.  As far as I know--this is already happening in Delhi and Bombay!

Mudra
Mudra: Dance With Hands
“The word mudra means "hand gesture" in Sanskrit; the mudras are used in the classical Indian dances, where hands are more expressive than words.  They even don't express anything definite, but channel the energy flows.  And one really wants to "dance with hands" to the music of Prem Joshua and his friends. You can express everything by their movements: joy of being, sadness, passion, delight, the most intimate words of love… absolutely everything… And it would be more than all the words.”
- Shanti Om Music

 
Sky Kisses Earth
Unique East/West Blend
 "Joshua, a talented multi-instrumentalist, plays bamboo flutes, sitar, santoor, dilruba, gopichand, swarmandal harp, and tanpura while singing.  Additional musicians contribute keyboards, programming, balaphone, and lots of percussion, including tablas.  The heady result is a unique blend of Eastern and Western musical traditions with some of the best tracks I've heard all year."
- Steve Ryaels, New Age Retailer

Dakini Lounge
Swing To The Glory Of The Universe
At 18, a German student saw Ravi Shankar perform and his life was changed forever; Prem Joshua spent the next 20 years in India, mastering the sitar and learning the traditions of Indian music.  

As his own style developed he blended Eastern styles and instruments with Western Jazz forms using the Indian flutes, sax, electronica and tarana-style (wordless) vocals.  With this latest album, Prem Joshua's music has gone one step further into the mainstream, remixed by DJ Science to create a true synthesis of tradition and futurism.  

Bringing in the vision of different mixologists, including Cosmic Rocker, Aram Ram and Sean Dinsmore, Prem Joshua's haunting, dreamlike music is transformed into dub, chill and dancefloor masterworks.  This album takes trance inducing, meditative music and adds movement and dance-ability.  The listener is induced to get up, swing and sway to the glory of the universe.  Highly recommended .
