Concert with Deva Premal and Miten,
|After their big success in 2013 again in Portugal!
10.May 2014, 20.00 at Aula Magna,
Alameda Universidade de Lisboa
Deva Premal & Miten began their journey into love and music in 1990 when they met
at an ashram in India. Their worldwide concerts and best-selling albums have since
introduced millions in the West to the deep healing and joy found in sharing sacred
songs and mantras from the Eastern meditation traditions.
Deva's debut album The Essence, which rocketed to the top of New Age charts
around the world when it was released in 1998, introduced a unique musical genre,
offering the ancient mantras of India and Tibet in contemporary musical settings.
Since then Deva & Miten have released a string of acclaimed CDs with worldwide sales
of over one million, and their concerts have moved from small yoga studios to audiences
of thousands in concert halls, cathedrals & music festivals around the planet.
Their music transcends all the usual musical boundaries, receiving accolades from
such luminaries as best-selling author Eckhart Tolle, who calls their music "pure
magic." Hollywood icon Cher cites Deva's The Essence as "My favorite CD to do
yoga to." Motivation guru, Anthony Robbins, describes their music as "Passionate
and powerful." Even His Holiness the Dalai Lama is reported to listen to their music
during his private time and, when hearing Deva & Miten chant his favorite mantra at
a private audience, exclaimed, "Beautiful music, beautiful!"
In recent years, the practice of chanting Sanskrit mantras, once virtually unknown in
the West, has followed yoga into the Western mainstream, with huge audiences at
concerts and yoga festivals embracing chant as an effortless path to ease the heart
and quiet the mind. As Deva points out, "When you sing mantras, you enter a state
of peaceful, vibrant and replenishing silence. Basically, that's why all religions and
traditions have made so much of chanting in their rituals." She also notes that
chanting mantras can be healing on many levels: "The Sanskrit language is energy
based Ð it is sound medicine. It has a harmonizing and balancing effect on the
energy centers in the body, both physically, and metaphysically."
They are joined on tour by Nepalese bansuri flute maestro Manose. Born in
Kathmandu, Manose began his musical journey with a rigorous training in classical
Indian raga. Later he brought the sound of the bansuri to many musical genres, from
jazz to Celtic to a hugely popular rock band in Kathmandu. Since meeting Deva
Premal and Miten in San Francisco, on a recording session for their 2002 Embrace
album, Manose has performed extensively with them in concerts throughout the
world, and is featured on many of their albums, including the most recent,
A Deeper Light.
