With this fourth Album" Surrender", 'Satyaa and Pari open a new dimension in mantric songs, bhajans and devotional music.
The instrumentalisations, arrangements and compositions carry that special spark that ignites the heart and makes the body want to move. The music is very inspiring while practicing various excersises like yoga.
Co- producer and sound guru, Raj Rishi contributed his intuitive skills about sound and music, colored with great rhythmic arrangements.
Without leaving the easiness and simplicity of their earlier albums, they include many more instrumental arrangements which support the feeling of devotion. The letting go into the divine, the big relaxation into the Beloved in our Heart, is the musical intention and guide line.
The compositions are aiming at the stillness within and SatyaaÂ´s voice carries the listener softly and safely into the inner realm of peace, beauty and devotion. Most songs carry an easiness about them that is inviting to sing along.
Heartfelt, mostly handmade and kept simple, the music reflects the deep desire of the heart for stillness, beauty,God.
Surrender CD review, yoga aktuell( german edtion), november 05:
"There is music that expands into the room touching everything like a tender veil, softly caressing the soul. ItÂ´s this kind of music you are listening to on the new Mantra-CD release "Surrender". The mantras on this CD, the fourth from Satyaa and Pari are partially self composed songs and partially traditional melodies. This form of mantric interpretation is really a treat for the listener. On this CD one finds a well chosen compilation of beautiful mantras.
Satyaa and Pari are offering regularly kirtans and satsangs at their summer retreat center in Greece and are touring during winter offering mantra singing concerts. On most of the tracks it is SatyaaÂ´s voice that transmits a deep sense of devotion with her clear voice and discrimination never to get too much. Pari as well sings with a rare to be found sense of deep passion in a decent quiet manner that touches the heart with its honesty and simplicity. Among various well known instruments like tablas and flutes as well as african djembe drums one can hear the greek string instrument: bouzouki and it is surprisingly well melting with the indian melodies. With deepest pleasure one takes the title literal by the word and relaxes absolutely in the vast ocean of Surrender; resistance would not only be absurd but also useless."
CD review, yoga magazine, U.K edtion, november 05:
"Devotional chants at its best from two of the hottest names in the industry. This is the fourth album from Satyaa and Pari, containing powerful mantras, chants and devotional songs. Love and passion ooze from the tracks covering the popular Govinda Jaya, Om Arunachala and Hare Ram Sita Ram mantras. Satyaa contributes her talent to the album with her vocals, harmonium and tempura. And Pari adds vocals, guitars and bouzouki.
The album is produced by Satyaa, Pari and Rishi in the Free Floating Mobile and recorded in Corfu, Greece."
Satyaa was studying music and arts in Geneva, Switzerland, when an inner call for truth and love brought her to India. That is where she met her love for devotional music, songs and dance as an expression of gratitude and peace.
Her heart being on fire with this love for the divine and graced by the loving invitation of her master to sing and dance, she started to compose many songs, sing traditional mantras, kirtans, and bhajans, which have been released on her albums. SatyaaÂ´s rich voice and devotion emanate a contagious fire which carries listeners directly back to their own hearts.
Since a couple of years they are touring various cities in Europe and now, for the first time, they are going to sing in the U.S.
Their music in live performances has this Divine spark that ignites the fire within; the fire for truth, for God, for love. Satyaa and Pari share their music and their love at the Alexis Zorbas center in Corfu ( www.alexiszorbas.com), Greece where they live in summer.

Pari, who was born in Greece, had started to sing bhajans, kirtans and sanskrit mantras in the late seventies. Music was always playing an important part in his life and singing as an expression of love has been a daily practice around his Master in India.
