Spiritual Gypsies ... Planetary Musicians ...
"In our life together we feel closest to the tradition of the Baul mystics of India, who, like the medieval troubadours, traveled from place to place bringing news and music from the beyond, bringing people together in a celebration of meditation." (Deva Premal)
Best known for her top-selling chant albums THE ESSENCE and LOVE IS SPACE, Deva Premal and her partner Miten express the ancient wisdom of mantra through a contemporary musical voice. "Over the past 10 years we have devoted our lives to the expression of love and gratitude through music," says Miten. "Our music is not intended as entertainment. The true purpose is to awaken a longing in the heart for that which is omnipresent: the experience of silence and meditation." Planetary musicians who spend their lives touring the world, Deva Premal & Miten have performed in the US, Japan, Europe, Asia, Brazil and Australia.
German-born Deva Premal, is a classically trained musician and gifted singer who grew up in an atmosphere of mantras and eastern spirituality. Her first two albums, THE ESSENCE and LOVE IS SPACE topped New Age charts and popularity polls in yoga centers all over Europe, Australia and America. Her third album, EMBRACE is being released in May 2002.
Miten, originally from Britain, began as a singer-songwriter-guitarist in the 70's opening for such groups as Fleetwood Mac and Ry Cooder. He then discovered the power of meditation and left the world of rock 'n' roll behind. Miten has a number of albums of original songs, including STRENGTH OF A ROSE, TRUST THE SILENCE and BLOWN AWAY.
Deva Premal & Miten met at an ashram in India in 1990. While Deva Premal's name is more widely known, their partnership is deep and strong. "Miten and I have been living and playing together for 11 years. Everything we do, we do together. This is why I always say "us" and "we".
"Our nourishment and life's work is to create spaces around the planet where the silence that follows the chant is clearly tangible. We share with others the healing power of the voice ... and the bliss that it brings."
