“Having used this CD for dance, movement and inspiration at a recent retreat in Maui, I can only tell you that the response was 110 % overwhelming. Sensual rhythms, which are compelling and seemingly come from the inside out, draw the listener in layer by layer. Above all I am touched by the combination of strength, purity, and delicateness I hear in Deva Premal’s voice. Highly recommended.”

“The Gayatri is the most endearing and enduring vocal purification ceremony of all time. Its words are the fluid poetry of an ecstatic soul intimately connected with the Divine; it has the power of miracles. It has been recorded dozens of times, chanted by millions every day. But rarely, if ever, has it been set to music and sung with such spiritually-lifting grace.”
