DEVA PREMAL & MITEN with MANOSE featuring Joby Baker and Rishi
Temple at Midnight Tour 2017
Celebrated chant masters Deva Premal & Miten bring their Temple at Midnight tour to 19 cities in the USA, Canada and Mexico this May and June.
Accompanied by Nepalese bansuri maestro Manose, with Canadian Joby Baker on bass and Danish percussionist Rishi, their unique, spiritually inspired evenings of mantra, song, and chant are treasured by audiences around the planet.
These powerful gatherings offer a joyful path to centering in these turbulent times, creating moments of what Deva describes as “ecstatic silence” – or in Miten’s words, “luminous pools of deep celebration.”
During their 26 years together the duo have presented their music worldwide, from New York to Los Angeles, from Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro, from Moscow to Kiev to Tel Aviv, from San Quentin Prison to the concert halls of Europe, proving that mantras transcend all traditional cultural and religious boundaries.
They released two albums in 2016: Cosmic Connections Live, featuring tracks recorded during their 2014/15 World Tours; and Miten’s new best-selling collection of songs, Temple at Midnight, which rocked to the top of the iTunes charts in the USA, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Australia and New Zealand when first released.
Deva Premal & Miten with Manose’s 2017 Temple at Midnight North American Tour is sponsored by ORGANIC INDIA in association with UPLIFT.
MITEN: “The music we make is born out of a committed spiritual practice. We meditate – we investigate – and our music is a result of that experience. It’s more a case of life and death than entertainment.”
DEVA PREMAL: “Sanskrit mantras are ancient, primordial healing formulae that resonate at the very core of our being. By chanting communally, we access this profound depth of silence and inner peace, transcending all conflict – inner and outer.”
SAN QUENTIN PRISON INMATE: (after a concert by Deva & Miten and band) “I’ve been in here 25 years, but tonight I’m free…”
CHER: “The Essence by Deva Premal is my all-time favorite album for yoga.”
ANTHONY ROBBINS: “Songs for the Inner Lover by Miten is a passionate and powerful work of art.”
HH DALAI LAMA: (after Deva & Miten played for him at a private audience) “Beautiful, beautiful music…!”
