Suzin Green may be one of the best-kept secrets of the American kirtan scene. An incredible performer with a voice that will send you beyond the beyond, this album vibrates with profound stillness and supreme joy. Be forewarned, it can be extremely addictive. Great for listening at home or in the car. Fabulous if you like to sing along. And of course, perfect background music for yoga.
"If a crystal could sing, it would have a voice like Suzin's. What ringing clarity!"
-Linda Johnson, author of Daughters of the Goddess and The Living Goddess
"Suzin's chants are sophisticated and roomy, highlighting her soothing tones, huge vibrato and deep spirit. She takes off into vocal flights of fancy expressing divine light and love."
-YOGA Chicago magazine
"When I got here I gave Ma a copy of your CD. She played it over the loudspeaker here repeatedly. Many people came up to me and told me they loved the music. And one night in darshan, Ma asked me publicly who you were. She said she didn't like most American kirtan, but thought the album was brilliant and wondered if you would come visit or perform when she comes up north? [Sri Derek at Ma Jaya's Kashi Ashram]
"Suzin Green & Sura's album, Hearts on Fire, has the power to dissolve any illusion we hold of our own separateness into a vibrant, tantalizing whole - which is love itself." [Emily Sell, Shambhala Publications]
"Your version of the 5th chapter of the Devi Mahatmya is breathtakingingly beautiful. Ma works through you, definitely." [Kirin Mishra, Director, Saraswati River Yoga School]
Originally trained as a pianist in the western classical tradition, Suzin's musical sensibilities were profoundly touched when she met the spiritual master Baba Muktananda
in the 1970's. His ecstatic chanting revolutionized her
own approach to music and today, she is known for the passion, depth, and beauty of her kirtan style. Suzin has recorded four albums, three of which will soon be available on CD Baby. She is also a featured artist on the Gaiam release, Women's Yoga Chants.
