Product Description

Amazon.ca

Deva Premal, a vocalist born "Jolantha Fries" in Germany, prefers to be known by her acquired name; "Deva" is a Hindu title for divine. She has attracted a following by framing ancient Hindu mantras within atmospheric, contemporary settings. The result on Embrace, her third release, is at times flavorful, at other times undistinguished, but it produces more intriguing moments than duds. On occasion, Premal aspires to Enya-like reverence (e.g., tracks 2 and 4), then elsewhere coos her ancient text atop gentle grooves and jazzy flutes (tracks 3 and 6) in a manner suggestive of Deep Forest. Some might describe it as "smooth chant." Highlights include "Shree Ram Jai Ram," a beautifully realized cross-pollination of East and West (highlighted by Kit Walker's free-floating piano and Premal's resonant choir of voices) that hints at what Joni Mitchell might create if she tried her hand at Eastern music. --Terry Wood

Review

This is the music of earth angels, sublime and transcendent, divine longing in every note. Listen with your third ear! -- Gabrielle Roth, Raven Records

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartfelt Healing Music Jan. 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first became aware of Deva Premal's "Embrace" in my Yoga class and finally went out and recently got a copy of this CD.
This music combines Mantras with eclectic music which draws from many styles. Deva Premal has one of the most incredibly beautiful and sincere voices I've ever heard and I find that this music truly reaches inside my heart and elevates my spirits.
It's wonderful music not only to practice yoga with but to hear at any time.
I can't recommend this CD highly enough, it is a truly wonderful gift of music and I am looking forward to getting more of her CDs.
Namaste

4.0 out of 5 stars It's enjoyable! Feb. 12 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Deva Premal's voice and you really feel her energy in her music. I reviewed the songs briefly before buying this CD and have to say I got the impression the songs were invegorating and upbeat....but when I got the CD the first song is upbeat., the second song is slow, then the third picks up again. I love the music, but wished it either was upbeat or slow and not mixed. Reason, I like to use her music during my yoga classes and when we're flowing I prefer to use invegorating music all the way and slow at the end during the rest without having to change CD's.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing transcendant about Deva Premal... Feb. 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you like music to relax to or read a good book to, then this album might be appropriate. However,for music that would be useful for meditation or trance work, this or any album by Deva Premal I would not recommend. Her songs are repetitive and uninspiring. And given the album covers and pretense of mantra chanting, this is not ethnic to say the least. I'd recommend Russill Paul's yoga cd's instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! Aug. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
Terrific music - Deva's voice is so fluid and enjoyable. I sing along all the time - especially love the last song that just touches me at the core. I wish I had a translation for the indian words. Overall, I can listen to this cd over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique yet familiar June 24 2003
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Deva primal is a unique mixture of her own interpretation or manufacture of mantras and using the Book "Healing Mantras" ISBN: 1564557359 for inspiration. An added plus is the repetitiveness of her songs instead of changing the mode every five minutes or so. Thos album is not necessarily a classic but a hybrid of classic and contemporary to close the gap between the two worlds. There are better representations in both worlds but that does not distract form this great contribution.
Naturally each listener will select there own favorites, depending on circumstances and mood. Most of the time mine is "shree ram jai ram jai jai ram om."
Reading the insert will add to the appreciation of these songs. It tells of her background and the purpose of each song or chant.
