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

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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healing Mantra Aug. 19 2002
Format:Audio CD
You can find eight minutes and fifty-two seconds at the start of your busy day to chant with Deva Premal a most powerful Medicine Buddha healing chant "Teyata" contained on this disc; you owe it to yourself! Fill the "empty" moments of the day and stop mind-chatter with something useful and transformational. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Embraced. May 16 2002
Format:Audio CD
Deva Premal's, "The Essence", was there for me when my life dramatically changed. Now, with this new release, I find myself drawn to this music. Her unique voice is soothing, the music sometimes hypnotic. It's easy to become lost or part of the mantra. For quiet time, I light a candle, some incense, and sing along. It is wonderful!
