deva premal & miten

 
deva premal & miten “I wake every morning feeling like I’m living in a miracle – where spirituality, creativity, work, and love have all come to mean the same thing.  My life has been shaped by mantras; I have become their servant.” - Deva Premal  

After touring non-stop for almost 15 years and with over 300,000 CDs sold worldwide, Deva Premal & Miten are living proof that mantras are as relevant today as they were thousands of years ago.  Singing mantras has been a passion for Deva Premal since growing up in a German home permeated with Eastern spirituality.   

Now Deva Premal and her partner Miten travel the world sharing their gift of mantra music with enraptured audiences.  "Our music has always felt precious," says Deva Premal.  "Now our job is to travel and share it.  Over time more and more people are coming to the celebration."  

Deva Premal and Miten’s music is an invitation into the nature of love, devotion, and consciousness.  The couple have been living and playing together since 1991, releasing a string of acclaimed CDs along the way.  Their concerts have touched the hearts of seekers throughout the world.  

“Our music is born out of meditation and a celebration of life.  It’s not a matter of entertaining people.  We play to nourish a longing in the heart for that which never dies – the experience of love and meditation.” 
 - Miten  

Deva Premal, best known for her top-selling chant CDs, is a classically trained musician and gifted singer.  Her albums, The Essence, Love Is Space, and Embrace have topped New Age charts and popularity polls in record shops, yoga studios and healing centers all over Europe, Australia and America.   

Miten, originally from England, began as a singer-songwriter-guitarist in the 70s, opening for such groups as Fleetwood Mac and Ry Cooder.  He then discovered the power of meditation and left the world of rock ‘n’ roll behind.  Miten’s focus on a more spiritual path is reflected in his meditative, joyful and often sensual songs featured on CDs including Songs For The Inner Lover, Strength Of A Rose,
and Trusting The Silence.     

Deva Premal & Miten originally met at an ashram in India.  One morning, Miten was sitting on the edge of his bed playing guitar when Deva Premal spontaneously began singing harmony with him.  Everyone was astounded by the sound of her voice, including Miten.  “Her voice is such a pure expression,” says Miten, “there’s no ego in it.  That may be what touches people…”  

Deva Premal and Miten’s offering to the world is supported by a simple yet elegant vision:  "Everybody with a voice can sing, and everyone with a breath in their body can experience their divinity.  Our nourishment and life’s work is to create spaces around the planet where the silence that follows the chant is clearly tangible.  We share with others the healing power of the voice… and the bliss that it brings.”

The world is a better place thanks to Deva Premal and Miten’s gift of music.

deva premal Deva Premal grew up in Germany in a spiritual family where she was introduced at an early age to chanting and meditation.  Her mother is a musician and her father an artist.

"My father has been on the spiritual path since the 50's, studying Yoga, spiritual scriptures and whatever books were available back then, making it his daily discipline to meditate every morning between 3 and 5 am," she says.

"When I was growing up he devised exercises for my sister and I, to help us become more aware of the moment:  We were taught to say 'Om' whenever we placed something on the table, for example. Another was to say 'Ram' whenever we switched on the light!"

As a child she studied the violin and piano but it wasn't until she met Miten, at the Osho Commune in India, that she began exploring her voice.

"When Miten began encouraging me to sing harmony with him, I didn't need a big push!  I had grown up with music so the ground work was already done.  And we sounded pretty good together!  At first I played a supporting role, singing second voice, playing keyboards, and co-leading our workshops, which used mantras and chants from different cultures.  I was very shy to sing alone, but encouraged by Miten, I became more confident and eventually discovered my voice."

miten Miten grew up in the 60s.  "At that time, England was alive with rock 'n' roll music and the sound of The Beatles.  Everywhere you went it was on the street.  It was a time of innocence, a time when you could sense the possibility that life has no boundaries."

He later went on to establish a successful career for himself in the 70s and 80s as a singer/songwriter, touring with such bands as Fleetwood Mac, Lou Reed and Ry Cooder.  During this time he released two well-received albums, one produced by The Kinks, another by noted Los Angeles producer Bones Howe for Ariola Records.  Ultimately he found the rock 'n' roll life-style unfulfilling and empty, and he began an inner search which led him into the world of meditation.

It was at this time he came upon the most important and influential figure in his life, the rebel mystic, Osho.  "After I met Osho, everything fell into place," he says.  "He gave purpose to my life, and an understanding that divine chaos is the essence of it.  My eyes were opened to new possibilities which I continue to explore to this day." Miten proceeded to live his explorations, spending most of his time in India at the ashram of Osho, where he eventually found a way to express his gratitude, not surprisingly, through music.
