By Deva Premal
Gayatri Mantra Remix
Already considered a yoga music classic, The Essence is one of the New Age genre's top selling records. Backed by ambient grooves, subtle electronica and hand percussion, Deva Premal's transcendent vocals induce ecstatic contemplation. The Gayatri Mantra, the world's oldest known mantra for purification and healing, is the centerpiece for this truly meditative album. As Deva Premal's first release, The Essence lit a musical fire whose white hot flame continues to burn.
