deva premal & miten with manose : Product Reviews

Songs for the Sangha
From Daily Downward Dog blogger Maria Santoferraro
Sangha means spiritual community and the soothing voice of Deva Premal, reggae grooves from her partner Miten, peaceful bamboo flute from Manose, Joby Baker on bass and drums, and Spencer Cozens’ jazz-inflected acoustic piano, all come together to create an awesome “spiritual family” that we are all invited to join. When I first started listening to Songs for the Sangha I noticed it has a unique sound from my other Deva Premal and Miten CDs. The songs move from Western classical music to reggae grooves and some are infused with soul and jazz and the sounds of nature. I have to say that Deva Premal is my go to girl when I need awesome yoga music for a playlist and I have already used several of the tracks like “Ganapati Mantra/Strong My Roots” and “Karuna” for my yoga class playlists.

Songs for the Sangha
From YogiTunes by Shannon Sexton:
A good litmus test for a mantra music album is: does it make your spirit soar? Songs for the Sangha, the latest album by mantra music superstars Deva Premal & Miten, passes this test with flying colors. Exquisitely produced by multi-instrumentalist Joby Baker (whose production credits include the Cowboy Junkies and Tony Childs) the album features a mix of Deva Premal’s melodically rendered mantras and spiritually inspiring lyrics by Miten. The songs are enhanced by the soaring sounds of bansuri flute, courtesy of Nepali maestro Manose; the rock-solid foundation of Baker’s bass and drums; and UK keyboardist Spencer Cousins’ soothing melodies on a Steinway piano. Together, these musicians have created a melting pot of sounds from India, Nepal, Armenia, America, the Caribbean and beyond. The seven tracks, which touch on themes of compassion and devotion, include an epic, genre-bending “Om Parameshwara” chant; a swampy reggae chant to the Hindu deity Ganesh; and a stunning “Sarveshaam” chant sung by Deva Premal (and perfect for a long relaxation in Shavasana.) Manose adds a peaceful, otherworldly dimension to “Karuna” with his pure-hearted vocals. The final track, “Draw Near Draw Near,” is a prayerful song featuring poetry by Rumi. Deva Premal & Miten used to sing this song with their late guru Osho at his ashram in Pune, India. It’s a lovely way to close the album. And who knows…you might just find yourself singing along. Songs for the Sangha is the perfect backdrop for a meditative vinyasa class, a musical meditation, or bedtime yoga practice. It’s prayer it its purest form.
