Deva Premal - Music as Medicine
This week Kara has invited Deva Premal and Miten to Voice Rising to talk about Music as Medicine and Deva’s newest album release DEVA. Deva Premal’s composition, the Seven Chakra Gayatri Mantra, debuts on DEVA, nearly 20 years since Deva’s original ground-breaking version of the ancient Gayatri Mantra began topping alternative music charts and appearing on yoga, meditation, and sleep playlists worldwide. Deva Premal and Miten’s musical journey inspires everything from deep meditation to healing sleep to gentle dance movements making the tracks suitable for diverse playlists.
There are remarkable stories of transformation from around the world, where people have listened or attended a musical gathering of Deva Premal & Miten, and experienced a spontaneous healing. Deva and Miten have used their music for their own healing as well, most significantly, singing sacred mantras as an integral part of Miten’s healing from open heart surgery in March 2018. As documented in books like The Power of Music, by NY Times bestselling author Elena Mannes and The Healing Power of Sound by Mitchell Gaynor MD, scientific studies over the past decade have verified that music in fact has the power to heal us, both emotionally and physically, even where the big guns of conventional medicine have failed.
