Deva Premal and Miten with Manose

Deva Premal and Miten with ManoseFor almost two decades, Deva Premal and Miten have shared their journey into love and creativity through their inspiring blend of song, mantra and meditation with a worldwide audience. They have released a string of acclaimed CDs with sales of a million, and their concerts and ecstatic chant workshops are met with rave reviews throughout Europe, Australia, Canada, South America and the United States. Their concerts and workshops are more than music – they are invitations to share in a deep moment of meditation.

Musically, Deva Premal and Miten come from two very different worlds. Deva, German-born, classically trained, grew up in an environment imbued with eastern spirituality, where mantras were chanted as bedtime lullabies. Miten, from England, spent the 60's and 70s as a singer/songwriter in the heady world of rock 'n roll, recording with The Kinks, and touring with Fleetwood Mac, Ry Cooder, Lou Reed, and others.

Their music transcends all the usual musical boundaries, with fans including rock icon Cher, motivational coach Tony Robbins, best selling author Eckhart Tolle and even His Holiness The Dalai Lama who, after hearing Deva & Miten sing for a private audience, exclaimed, “Beautiful music, beautiful…!”

During their tours, Deva and Miten are accompanied by Nepalese bansuri flute maestro Manose. Born in Kathmandu, Manose began his musical journey with a rigorous training in classical Indian raga. Later he brought the sound of the bansuri to many musical genres, from jazz to Celtic to being a founding member of the most popular rock band in Kathmandu. Since meeting Deva Premal and Miten in San Francisco, during a recording session for their 2002 Embrace album, Manose has performed extensively with them and is featured on many of their recordings.

Guru Singh

Guru SinghDr. Guru Singh, DD, MMS, is a yogi, teacher, writer, composer-musician, shaman, ordained minister, healer, and most importantly, as he says, "a family man", living in Los Angeles and sometimes in India, London and New Mexico. Living with his wife and children, his life exemplifies a delicate and vital balance; honoring family and personal commitments while maintaining his spiritual dedication to working with the people of this world.

Guru Singh was born into a yogic and spiritual household with his father, an original child of Christian Science and his mother, a student of the mysticism of India and Tibet. Yogananda became Guru Singh’s first teacher, setting the foundation of a spiritual life. In 1969, Guru Singh met and began a 35 year daily practice with the master of Kundalini Yoga, Yogi Bhajan.

Guru Singh also studied music from an early age. In 1966 Warner Bros. Records signed him as one of the earlier artists to release music in the peace movement. With his songs on the radio and TV nationwide, Guru Singh shifted focus, moving to southern Mexico where he spent the a year training with maraakame masters (shaman) in an ancient form of musical healing. Guru Singh’s music is a fusion of all the influences he has experienced in life from the eastern-meta-sciences of mantra and raga to the western rock and the indegenous rhythms. His discography includeds A Game of Chants with his friend and Grammy winner Seal, Chantz 2 iMPAct Earth with the students from the school (MPA) in India, and the two Guru Singh Experience albums. He has also published two books, Angels Gather Here and 108 Ways to Great Days. As a writer and musician, he has several projects under construction at all times.

Guru Singh’s teaching grew from two extraordinary events: an esoteric curiosity inspired by his family’s deep connection to the masters of India; and the blessing of being ready when these teachers appeared. It ultimately constructed his own teaching style, a fusion of the eastern-mystic-spiritualism, and enough western pragmatism to be completely relevant. This is how he has taught a path of personal awakening, enriched fulfillment, and spiritual liberation to tens of thousands of people globally since 1970.
