Midnight Tour Showcases Devotional Music
Mar 28, 2017 09:33PM
The Scottsdale Center for the Arts will present Deva Premal & Miten, dubbed, “the Johnny and June Carter Cash of sacred music” and their Temple at Midnight Tour at 7:30 p.m., May 25. With more than 1.5 million albums sold worldwide and devoted audiences of thousands across the globe, these musicians have revitalized mantras, music and meditation in the Western world.
“We don’t do shows. Our music is not about entertaining people. It’s about experiencing sacred sound and what Deva calls ‘ecstatic silence’ together,” Miten explains. “We learned the power of sacred music in our ashram in India and we saw how chanting ancient healing mantras, which were discovered by the wise ones of India to enlighten and sustain the spirit, brings us to a place of transcendence.”
Along with their longtime collaborator, Nepalese bansuri flutist Manose, and two special guests, Danish percussionist Rishi and Canadian bassist Joby Baker, Deva Premal & Miten share an intensely joyful path to centering in these turbulent times.
