ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is an offering to women everywhere, evoking a peaceful, yet powerful essence of femininity and devotion. Their voices, thier wisdom, and poetry are felt in these songs: composed in both dance and meditative styles. Compiled as a decication to women of spiritual voices, this is a compelation of women's songs from India, sung in Hindi and Sanskrit. The songs reflects the styles of chants, Bhajans and Kirtan. The artists has composed the music and arrangements in dedication to her late mother, Kunti Devi.

In 1998, as my mother was passing away,she requested me to take my singing seriously and record. Although I had studied Sanskrit and sung bhajans for 28 years, I was apprehensive without proper training. That same year, I took her ashes to India, and searched for a teacher to begin studying the classical Dhrupad style. My two teachers, Pandit Vidur Malik and Tarun Krsna Das guided me through four years of wondrous meditation and training.
As a child in school, my teacher Kutila taught us to chant the women's prayers from the scriptures. Rembering this, I took the opportunity to search out more women in our Sampradaya ( spiritual lineage) and compose music to their words.
Here then, is my offering to these glorious women. Women who sing, pray and share their life with realizations. For all of us, there is a voice that we can relate to, whether it be Draupadi's song of letting go or simply the Arati celebration to the river Yamuna. Please sing along and let these women touch your heart.

Dasi Prayers by Women.
Beautiful female voices plus good variety of tempo and style of music. I highly recommend this CD.

Ragani

Stunning!
How right reviewer Radhacharan Das is! The training is evident in Karnamrita's voice, and the depth of her singing takes you right into your heart, and right into the heart of India. How the ragas of these songs (e.g. "Devaki") make me long for ancient India! Beautiful... I can't wait to hear more from this artist, and I hope she releases a kirtan album one day too!

Rebecca

Beautiful and uplifting
Karnamrita's beautiful voice is just perfect all thoughout this wonderful album, and Dasi has quickly become a staple of my collection of devotional Indian music. "The Glories of Sri Radha" always brings a smile to my face, while many of the other tracks evoke the spiritual calm I always look for in the Bhajans I listen to. In every track, Karnamrita unceasingly captures the joy and beauty that is appropriate in songs that sing praise to Sri Krishna and Sri Radha. If you are a practicing Hindu like myself and want something religious to listen to, or if you're just a casual music fan who appreciates the beauty of Indian music, this album is a must. I'll be eagerly awaiting any upcoming releases from this talented woman.
