Anticipating an Evening with Deva Premal & Miten

When I want to really relax or just meditate and I can't get out in the woods somewhere, I put on some kind of chanting music - Gregorian chant, Sanskrit chant... whatevs. There's something about this type of sound that soothes and calms me unlike any other.

That's how I found out about Deva Premal & Miten, a couple who creates music based in Sanskrit, Sufi, Hopi, Uruba, Tibetan and other chants. This info comes from their website:

Deva Premal and Miten met in India in 1990 and soon began a journey into love and creativity that has taken their inspiring blend of song, mantra and meditation to a worldwide audience. They have released a string of acclaimed CDs with international sales of nearly one million, and their concerts and ecstatic chant workshops are met with rave reviews throughout Europe, Australia, South America, Canada and the United States.

Their music transcends all the usual musical boundaries, with fans including rock icon Cher, who featured one of Deva’s most popular chants, the Gayatri Mantra, on her Farewell Concert Tour; world renowned author and motivational coach Tony Robbins, and even His Holiness The Dalai Lama who, after hearing Deva & Miten sing for a private audience, exclaimed, “Beautiful music, beautiful…!
Excitingly, Deva & Miten will be in Kansas City (and Missouri) for the first time EVER this upcoming Wednesday, September 28th at Unity Temple on the Plaza. I'm looking forward to experiencing their music first-hand, and hope you will take some time to listen to the following music and see if it touches you.

If you want to purchase a ticket, you can buy them in person at Stone Spirit Lodge in Westport or online at Brown Paper Tickets.
