PREMAL Deva, MITEN & MANOSE
In response to the many requests received over the years, this long awaited album of Deva & Miten IN CONCERT releases in May 2009.
Deva, Miten, and Manose have been touring together constantly for the past 4 years, during which time their concerts have gained a reputation for spiritual rejuvenation, high celebration and deep meditation, steeped in the richness of Sanskrit mantra.

This CD/DVD package captures the spirit of the trio's live experience exquisitely, in their 'home town' of Byron Bay Australia. It contains many of their most inspirational mantras and songs, plus 6 previously unrecorded, brand new pieces.
The 2 hour BONUS DVD captures the magic of the evening, along with personal interviews and extras, while the CD features the haunting, uplifting new anthem IN THE LIGHT OF LOVE/OM SHREE DHANVANTRE NAMAHA.

About the Artist
In contrast to the rock 'n' roll lifestyle of Miten, Deva Premal was raised in an atmosphere of mantra and spiritual discipline.
Born in N?rnberg, Germany in 1970 of a mystic/artist father and a musically talented mother, she was taught violin, piano and received voice training. By the time she was five years old, she was already chanting the Gayatri Mantra daily, and since that time she continues to integrate meditation into her life.
She has studied Shiatsu, Reflexology, CranioSacral Therapy and Massage, but music remains her first love. The influence of Indian classical music is evident in her singing, although she has never attempted to copy or steal from the tradition
"It just comes naturally, as if I'd heard it all before, in another life."
Among the numerous letters of appreciation she has received since the release of her albums, many describe how her music has been used to accompany and enhance the sacred passages of birth and death. In fact, Elisabeth K?bler-Ross, the world famous author of On Death And Dying, requested that Miten and Deva bring their music to accompany her passing. "We have played for many people," says Deva, "but to play personally for Elizabeth was something I will never forget.?
Miten grew up in the 60's. "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 70's and 80's 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."

Reviews of DEVA PREMAL & MITEN IN CONCERT DVD & CD:
***"The latest release from Deva Premal and Miten beautifully captures what has made
them famous in concert halls and yoga studios across the planet: well-articulated, melodically based mantras backed by crystal-clear guitars, keyboards, and, thanks to special guest Manose, bansuri flute.
"Manose's performance on Twameva, alongside Premal's softly intoned devotional praises
to the beloved, is beautiful. Miten's work on the guitar is equally powerful.... Recorded live in Australia in February 2008, an accompanying DVD features the entire concert,
as well as an interview with
Premal and Miten. This is
an excellent addition to the expansive Premal and Miten catalog."
"As close as it gets to being there: Deva Premal, Miten and Manose In Concert is a soulful delight." -Light of Consciousness | Journal of Spiritual Awakening
Just watched the new DVD was touched to tears! Fantastic! Magical!
***Listened to the CD once and woke up singing The Light of Love the next morning.... I love it! Played it for 2 hours yesterday and driving everyone mad here at Leela singing it (badly) all over the place. The combo of Miten singing English and Deva the Sanskrit works so well (one of the things I loved about Eyes of an Angel). I've just got to listen to the rest of the CD now.
